I'm Arwen, I'm passionate about food. I love cooking and experimenting with flavours and different cuisines from all around the world. I also have dreams of one day having my own cooking show. It was this dream and my love of food that lead me to an exciting Thermomix career in 2011.
I love using my Thermomix, often using it multiple times a day to quickly whip up delicious meals and treats at home for family and friends. I source fresh, local produce and ingredients whenever I can, including harvesting produce from my own kitchen garden. I love cooking every single element of a dish from scratch so I am guaranteed to get maximum flavour into my food.
I get a real buzz out of inspiring others to get the most out of their Thermomix by trying new recipes. I have been lucky enough to do some recipe testing & I enjoy food styling & photography. You can also find me on instragram and the Thermomix recipe community.
Who loves a bit of Jam? I do but I find the traditional recipe just a bit too sweet so I like to add less sugar. I like the latest idea of adding chia seeds to thicken it so you can use less sugar. It is just so easy to make Jam & chutneys in the Thermomix, it does the cooking & stirring for you. It is not recommended to do a double batch because it could boil over. Always take out the MC from the Thermomix lid & place the simmering basket on top to let out some moisture & catch any splatters.
Here we have the traditional raspberry jam made in the Thermomix with some rhubarb from the garden & a splash of rosewater – the recipe is coming soon!! Perfect to go with my scone recipe.
I do love a fritatta, you can put any veg & eat it for any meal, but to make it pretty special smoked salmon is the best ingredient to use!! Here is my Smoked Salmon Fritatta recipe if you want to give it a go?
