Nico Moretti’s Recipes

Nico Moretti has his Cooking Passions cooking school in Perth and does foodie tours around the world with his wife Belinda. I can highly recommend the tours, after joining the one to Japan last year. Nico also joined us at Lake Como for our Thermomix Emerald Class Trip and for Thermofest in Vietnam. You can buy Nico’s cookbooks here. He also has recipes on cookidoo including a collection called Celebrate Summer. Here are some of the delicious recipes I have tried so far.

Healthy September

Healthy September

I felt the need to have a bit of a spring clean of my food intake after so much indulgence over the last few months. So my friends and I are going to be cooking and eating healthy recipes this month, using recipes from the Life Changing Food cookbook and Quirky Cooking cookbook, Fiona Hoskin’s recipes from her website and ebooks and healthy recipes from cookidoo from the Eat Well cookbook and Plant to Plate cookbook.

Rhubarb Lamb Ribs (I’m not sure how healthy this recipe is but I had the leftovers this week with salads and veggies)
I’ve been making lots of salads with leftover steamed chicken.
Chicken soup with leftover veggies the stock is from steaming a whole chicken also served with homemade kimchi.
Fig Fruity Dream – we used frozen fresh figs & an egg white, then served with walnuts – you could add honey if you wanted it a bit sweeter?
Kingfish Sashimi recipe from the Chin Chin Cookbook
Lamb Saag from the Flavours of India Cookbook
Easy Dinners Thermomix Style

Easy Dinners Thermomix Style

Here are some of my favourite easy dinners using the Thermomix.

Taco bowl using leftover Family Beans recipe ( I always make a double batch) you can make a delicious salsa and a avocado dip and serve with other salad cheese and corn chips and you can even add leftover shredded meat or chicken.
The Best Apple Cake Ever!!

The Best Apple Cake Ever!!

My hubby loves apple pie and apple cake and I have made many different recipes for him over the years. However he pronounced this recipe the best one ever, which is the highest compliment there is. I used the recipe from Darren Purchese’s cookbook – Lamingtons and Lemon Tart, the original recipe came from his wife Cath and her Mum. It’s almost like a pie because there is such a thick layer of apple filling. YUM!!! Plus the recipe included a recipe for a wicked vanilla bean custard!! Just perfect to make in the Thermomix of course. I even bought the pink lady apples from the Huon Valley – one of our famous apple growing areas in Tassie.
