New Ebook: Top 25 Ice Cream Recipes And More!
February 2nd 2017

I love ice cream, sorbet, frozen desserts. Ever since discovering that my dad had created an award winning ice cream recipe when he worked for one of England’s biggest ice cream factories, I have been obsessed with creating (and of course eating) ice cream. The most recent runaway success has been the Killer Vanilla Ice cream recipe that now appears in this new ebook. It originally appeared in my last cookbook, Cooking with Tenina; More great recipes for the Thermomix which is widely available in print and on iBooks. So start your mixers people. You are about to find out that happiness is home made ice cream. Read..

The Amazing Thermomix Forum
October 16th 2012

What to do when I just can’t come up with the goods? Or when I need some support? Or when I wish to go away on a foodie weekend with like mindedThermomix peeps who are equally crazy? Needless to say, I head across the wire to the friendliest bunch of ladies(and gents, Jeff and Den) who all care and share with such generosity, that it beggars belief. I am talking about theForum Thermomix, the place that I found waaaaay back when I was a thermie virgin and absolutely NO clue about what I was getting into. Little did I know I was practically joining a cult!(This is no laughing matter, and I kid you not, get evangelical or you’ll just never fit the mould!!) Read..
