I am so excited to have received my long awaited Thermomix. I have been wanting a Thermomix for a few years now. At first I couldn’t get my head around the initial investment, but after seeing that all the people I know who own a thermomix, use them everyday, I realised that it would be a great investment for my kitchen. When we decided to renovate the kitchen, I had factored the cost of a Thermomix into the budget, but alas, that budget was blown out, so I have waited (albiet, not so patiently) till now for my lovely new machine. It only arrived yesterday and after the lovely demo lady guided me through it, I have been experimenting ever since. I can’t believe how quickly it chops, sautes and whizzes things (it does a lot more too). So far I have made, pumpkin soup, lamb and lemon risotto, mushroom soup, rice bubble slice, chocolate cake and chicken and fetta sausage rolls. I haven’t exploded yet, thankfully, as I have had very enthusiastic taste testers helping me out. I can already see an influx of recipes coming on. So I suggest you go ahead and let out a belt notch or two and let the gastronomic funfair begin!
