Dani Valent Month in March 2018

Ok I think you get it that I just love all of Dani Valent’s cookbooks, recipes & her video site, see my posts on when I cooked & photographed all the recipes from her Entertaining with Dani Valent Cookbook. Plus I am am constantly updating my post on all the recipes I have tried from her video site – My addiction to Dani Valent Video Website. A few years a go I did an In the Mix Cookbook challenge & cooked over 40 recipes from the books in 30 days!! So this year I decided March would be #DaniValentMonth. I decided to host a lunch with 4 foodie friends & asked them to each bring a Dani Valent dish to share – one of my friends confessed to being a Basque Cheesecake virgin so we told her she had to make it & bring to our lunch on the 8th March.

I made the Roasted Cauliflower Hummus recipe from Dani Valent’s site it’s by Shane Delia & so delicious served warm 🙂


Dani Valent herself couldn’t make it to our lunch so we set up a “Shrine” for her at the head of the table 🙂


I cracked out my homemade Kimchi – recipe by Sharon Flynn is on Dani’s site too.


Sue made the Mushroom Cappuccinos recipe from the Entertaining with Dani Valent Cookbook, with a touch of truffle oil, it was a perfect start to our ladies lunch 🙂


Rosey made the Sour Orange Curry recipe from the In the Mix Cookbook by Mark Newman – it was so yummy & spicy 🙂


(I forgot to take photos on my camera of the other 2 delicious main dishes that we had Onion Jam Flan from In the Mix cookbook made by Rosey & Rita made the Herb Salted Chicken form the Spanish chapter of Entertaining with Dani Valent cookbook  – both delicious recipes!!)


Christine made the Basque Cheesecake for her very first time & she did an awesome job of it – you can watch the live video we took of her trying it for the first time & she gave it a 10.5 out of 10!!


I also made the White Chocolate and Baileys Parfait with Coffee Crumble recipe from Dani’s site by Julie Wholefood Alchemist. We shared 1 between 5 in case you are wondering but it was so good!!


I also made the Choc Top recipe by Christy Tania on Dani’s site – it has Cherry Semifreddo, sable biscuit base & dipped in Chocolate served with chocolate ganache. yes we shared one of these too 🙂


One of the best things was dividing up the leftovers to share YUM!!

We can’t wait for our Dani Valent Cocktail & Canapé’s evening at the end of the month – watch this space 🙂

My Addiction To Dani Valent Video Website

It’s no surprise to me or anyone else that I love this video site that Dani Valent has put together. Sign up here. It is a subscription site for amazing Thermomix recipe videos, you get 1 free video a month for the free subscription or for $89 a year you get 1 Thermomix video (with printable) recipe a week & you start with all the recipes when you join. It’s great value & features home cooking recipes by Dani & also amazing Chef’s recipes too. Here is one of the free videos with Jo Whitton from Quirky Cooking making Coconut Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup.

What’s not to love? Being inspired to try & taste new recipes, learning new skills & ideas for your Thermomix cooking plus I love seeing how chefs use the Thermomix for their dishes. I have made a lot of the recipes already & some of them I have made a few times because they are so delicious 🙂
