Did you see them using the Thermomix? What was it they said - something like Thermomix is new to Australia, but not new to Chefs!! Well look out all you chefs out there - the secret is out, and we home cooks will soon be turning out food as good as you!!!
Yesterday I was lucky enough to spend the day using a Thermomix - my kitchen literally turned into a test kitchen for the day! What fun we had too!
Today's posting is going to be a tempter of things to come - there is no way I can share all the recipes with you in one posting, but I will tease you with the things that we made in just a few short hours!!
We started off making a Capsicum and Sun Dried Tomato Dip
Then, rather than washing out the bowl we added a few more ingredients and made a salad dressing from the last remnants in the bowl.
We then proceeded to make 2 kinds of stock - a concentrated vegetable stock (that will last for 6 months in the fridge!!) and also a chicken stock.
We turned a block of parmesan cheese into grated parmesan in a matter of seconds!
We made mayonnaise......
Then we made home made nutella, which we then turned into home made Ferrero Rocher Chocolates!!
For lunch we made ourselves a risotto
We turned raw sugar into icing sugar in a couple of seconds
Then to finish off we made a vanilla custard - but I forgot to take a picture!!!!!!
Can you believe that we did all that in a few hours!!!
The Thermomix is truly an impressive little machine - but don't be fooled by its size - it is a mighty little workhorse - and the bowl will hold enough to make a risotto that will feed 6!
As I said this is a just a little teaser. I need to sit down now and fully compile the recipes that we tried out yesterday. Some were experiments (that maybe didn't work as well as we had hoped they would) - but they just need a little fine tuning and they will be perfect!
I urge you to take a look at the Thermomix if you are a serious cook - they make life so much easier. This is only a tiny sample of what you can do with one.
If you are interested in finding out more please contact me and I can put you in touch with a consultant who will come to your home and give you a demonstration (and sample) of what the mighty Thermomix can do!!!
And no - we did not consume all this food ourselves in one sitting!!!
