I don't claim to be an expert cook. Or a fancy cook. In fact, I never used to really enjoy cooking. So this is mostly about low fuss, filling and tasty meals, and really just anything I have a go at and decide to share along the way!! My top priority is avoiding additives and preservatives wherever possible closely followed by using whole/less processed/healthier ingredients. But for those who would like conventional options that are quick tasty and cost effective, I would like to share tips on all of these as well!!

Dani Valent "In The Mix" Cooking Class

Dani Valent came to Newcastle today and did a cooking class based on some of her recipes from "In The Mix".

Have you downloaded the App?  It has some great videos and a selection of recipes for free!  How to temper chocolate perfectly, Grissini and more!

So today she ran through so many different aspects, I left the class so excited!  Excited that I, a simple stay at home mum - basic cook, could reproduce these stunning dishes and elements of dishes of a gourmet standard quickly, simply and easily with a Thermomix.

Making Chlorophyll paste
She did some things out of the cookbook I had not even really looked at long enough to realise what I could do with them.  For example, the Chlorophyll Paste - what a fantastic addition to your Green Smoothie (also in the cookbook) that just packs a stack of nutrients into a concentrated paste!

Beef Stir fry - Yum!  And so quick and easy and the beef was steamed while the rice was cooking for 20 minutes.  People often ask about steamed steak, well this was beautiful!  And then add your stir-fried veggies (takes around 6 minutes to cook in the bowl).

Beef Stirfy to feed a crowd! From marinade to rice, omelette and
stir-fried veggies, everything was done in the Thermomix
Kuzu Gnocchi with Parsley oil and Pea Soup.

And lots more - in just 2 hours!!

I just came away continually amazed at the absolute variety of things you can do with a Thermomix.  It doesn't matter whether you love it for Health, Sweet Treats, Gourmet Cooking, Saving Time, or because you want to avoid cooking, the Thermomix really does fit for all of those categories!!

Don't forget if you would like to take advantage of hosting a Varoma demonstration this month and the bonus offers that go along with that, please let me know.

But also, 12 Months Interest Free is a great opportunity for people who prefer to have a payment plan rather than an upfront payment.  If you have questions about this, please contact me also.

For those who already own a Thermomix and are interested in purchasing "In the Mix", you can purchase through your consultant or online at www.thermomix.com.au.

So go and continue discovering the potential of what the Thermomix can do!!!
