Did anyone see the Thermomix on "A Current Affair" on Monday night? Justine (from MasterChef) was showing six 'must haves' for the kitchen, and was very enthusiastic about her Thermomix, calling it "The Rolls Royce of the kitchen"! Which of course it is... If you missed it, you can see it here:
Then there it was again tonight on "Iron Chef - Australia", being used by Matt Stone from Perth's "Greenhouse" restaurant, as he battled it out against Iron Chef, Neil Perry. Does anyone other than me think he should have won??? His dishes were so impressive and creative - and, oh, how I wish I could have tasted his amazing dessert! The way it just popped open when tapped with a spoon, to reveal that delectable 'goo' inside... And the presentation was beautiful too, and very different - a coconut on a sandy beach! Wow, I was impressed. So if you'd like to try and make it, here's the recipe! Don't ask me where you can get liquid nitrogen though!! (lol) And I think this is the recipe he used the Thermomix for: Hiramasa kingfish, mussels, coconut & herbs - he was using it to make a sauce, but it was all so fast and furious, I'm not sure what exactly the sauce was - I'm guessing it was the one in this recipe as it says 'mix in a blender for 10 minutes til smooth'. Did anyone catch that bit? Anyway, here's a peek into the show, and a bit of a background on Matt Stone and the Greenhouse restaurant, which I'd really love to visit!!
Yes, the Thermomix is being spotted more and more lately, being used by chefs and foodies and everyday people everywhere - I think our little secret is leaking out!
