GCSE Food Technology students were delighted to be visited by Thomasina Miers last week. Thomasina led a cookery demonstration and worked with students to help them to improve their cooking techniques. Thomasina Miers was winner of BBC 2's MasterChef in 2005. She is a cook and food writer whose work has ranged from cheese-making and running market stalls in Ireland, cheffing with Skye Gyngell at Petersham Nurseries to co-founding the restaurant group Wahaca, and she has been the winner of numerous awards from OFM’s cheap eats to winner of the SRA’s sustainable restaurant group two years running. Tommi has written for the Financial Times, the Guardian and the Times, written and co-edited 5 cookery books and presented various cookery programmes for Channels 4 and 5. We were very pleased to welcome such a prestigious visitor to EGA and our students learned a great deal from her.
