This is fun. This is Miguel. This is now.


WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS


In an exclusive interview with Harris Scarfe, Miguel invited us into his favourite room of the house – the kitchen: “This is where the magic happens,” he greets us in his unmistakeable Spanish accent, his smile so infectious, you can’t help but smile yourself.
This is fun. This is Miguel. This is now. 1

Born in Spain, trained in Scotland and now a proud Australian citizen, the multi-talented chef, restaurateur, author and television presenter first burst onto our screens and into our homes in 2012 as the irrepressible cooking guru on Channel 10’s The Living Room. Miguel’s been like a concentrated splash of sunshine ever since, blending his culinary wizardry with a down-to-earth practicality that’s inspired Australians everywhere to come together and cook. And Miguel is still amazed at the opportunities cooking has given him over the years.

“Cooking is like a double gift. First, you bring family and friends together in a really special way. And then you all get to share in the rewards of your efforts. It’s brilliant.”

And for those of us who want to cook but are intimidated about where to begin, Miguel has some sage advice:

“You don’t need to follow all the rules. Simply make sure you find the space to laugh along the way. Cooking is what you make it. Blast the music up high and soon everyone in your home will come to see what the fuss is about!”
