#189 How to Create Better Soil, Happier Farmers and Healthier People with Thomasina Miers
It was an absolute pleasure to host Thomasina Miers on the podcast today. Entrepreneur, cook, TV personality, activist, writer and so much more. There isn’t much that this incredible person can’t do.
Like many of us, she learnt to cook at her mothers side and after attempting to forge a career in advertising, journalism, digital consultancy, she followed her heart and went to cookery school.
Fast forward a few years, after travelling the world, she went on to win Masterchef and create Wahaca inspired by the food markets of Mexico during her trips.
Tommi cares deeply about where our food comes from, how it is grown, supports the soil, biodiversity and the planet and believes everyone should have access to good ingredients.
I learnt so much more about Tommi and we chat about:
- The importance of soil
- How the Chefs in Schools charity is changing what our children eat
- How Groove Armada sold his record rights and started an organic farm
- Why the ancient Mayan civilisation disappeared
Remember you can check out Tommi’s incredible book “Meat Free Mexican” which has some glorious dishes and her regular column in the Guardian.
