Thermomix Demo

An up close and personal demonstration.

Everyone arrives late, but once it gets going, there’s no stopping what the Thermomix creates!

We made strawberry sorbet, peach bellinis, bread rolls, garlic and herb dip, mushroom risotto, coleslaw and lemon custard – all from the recipe book.

The things we didn’t like:
the raw garlic and the raw shallots in the dip
watching all the powdered sugar and flour waft through the gap created by the MC and into the kitchen – ugh – I detest mess!

But overall, it was all yummy and easy and fast.

Thermomix Class – An Introduction to the Thermomix

In an effort to learn more about the Thermomix and whether we want it instead of a Kitchen Aid food processor, mum and I attended a cooking class.
The class’s menu was as follows: mandarinade, honeydew melon sorbet, capsicum and sundried tomato dip, broccoli salad, herb bread pull apart, potato and leek soup, brown rice salad, vanilla custard.

They made all of this with just the Thermomix in less than 2 hours, the only exception being that the bread needed to be baked in the oven.

They even churned butter from cream for the pull apart. Admittedly, I’ve played with making my own butter from cream by shaking it for ages and ages in a little container, so I wasn’t surprised that it could churn butter.

What impressed me most was the speed. Living in this fast world, where I have better things to do than slave over a hot stove to do the boring things, the speed appealed to me. I can spend time making funny shaped biscuits, or decorating a cake.

Mum and I have determined that we have to host a demo at my place and buy a Thermomix. Stuff the Kitchen Aid food processor. This thing can cook food and puree it all at once. I don’t have to cook food then transfer it to a food processor to puree. It’ll be a breeze when it comes to making baby food!
