'When I sat down to write this book, I wanted to gather together the recipes that have meant the most to me over the years. They include family favourites, versions of dishes I grew up with and those I love cooking for my husband and children now. There are recipes that have been the biggest hits when feeding friends as well as exotic recipes that I've picked up on my travels. There are some I created on the hoof and others inspired by my much-loved, dog-eared cook book collection,'
writes Thomasina Miers of her wonderful new book Home Cook.
Thomasina Miers was the winner of BBC Masterchef in 2005. She is the co founder of Wahaca and winner of numerous awards, including Observer Food Monthly's Best Cheap Eats. She has presented various cookery TV programmes and writes a column 'Weekend Cook' in The Guardian Weekend Magazine.
Thomasina will be talking about her life in cookery and her latest book with award winning writer and enthusiastic cook, Jason Goodwin.

I did so enjoy being with you and doing my stuff. I hope to see you again, though I am so busy I don't seem to have time for writing much at present! I am
sure your festival will go from strength to strength….
I don't think you could improve on the experience! Good luck with your plans for 2017 and I wish you all the very best.
Very well organised, excellent variety in terms of author and presentation. Favourite was Tony Robinson, but I also really enjoyed Julia Shaw (memory very thought provoking), Richard Dannatt (good solid start to festival) JOHN Wright (local and good humour) Alison Weir (such research and knowledge) and Victoria Hislop (novel in a different style).
Thank you very much for having me to the festival and making me feel so welcome.
Thank you for allowing me to be part of this great event. Well done to both of you, fantastic event.
I very much enjoyed giving my talk and meeting you and all your colleagues. I can think of no way you could have been more accommodating.
