2008 Thomasina Miers - 2008ThomasinaMiers.gifOne of the most successful winners of BBC’s Masterchef series, Thomasina Miers followed up her victory in 2005 with two cookery books Soup Kitchen and Cook before launching Wahaca in Covent Garden early in 2007. After stints as a VAT consultant and model failed to grab her fancy, Miers did a three-month course at cookery school Ballymaloe in Ireland before working in the food store Villandry in Great Portland Street, helping to set up its wholesale bread business. Following her success on Masterchef, she travelled extensively in Mexico, gleaning inspiration for the street market food that is the staple of Wahaca.
