Meet Tenina

Tenina Holder is a wife and mum and more recently grandmother, who started cooking for a living back in 2006 when she was employed by the original Kleenmaid company as a cooking consultant, a job that quickly grew into this site.

Tenina worked as the First Ever, Official Recipe Developer for Thermomix Australia, and also did a lot of work for the Thermomix parent company Vorwerk International, which was tough, because she had to make several trips to Europe each year, but someone had to do it!

Tenina has become the premium go to source for all thermal blending expertise and of course fresh and easy recipes that work. Her cooking classes are sold out in literally hours, her cookbooks frequently appear on the Australian best seller lists and her Spin A Dinner app hovers around on top of the charts. Her following is growing and global with people as far away as Chile and Kazakhstan loving her books and sending her fan mail! Tenina is not afraid of salt, butter or sugar and believes chocolate is a health food.

Tenina is also the part owner of the fantastic brewed chocolate beverage, Crio Bru in Australia and New Zealand. Her spare time is spent dreaming up new cooking projects, pinning delectable pictures to Pinterest and planning her next culinary tourist trek. She has been seen without her trademark pearls, but rarely without her lip-gloss.
