Making flavoured salts or sugars was a favourite of Fiona Hoskin. Her Launceston restaurant, Fee & Me, won national awards for an innovative menu. Fiona & her chefs used a number of Thermomix to create maximum flavour, while saving time. You can find Fiona’s recipes from her restaurant in the Devil of a Cookbook which also includes a few recipes from renowned Chef Tetstuya.
Some chefs are concerned that the Thermomix will replace them. Having a Thermomix means they can work smarter, saving time while not compromising on quality. You can decide the level of involvement the Thermomix has in your kitchen. While most commercial kitchens wouldn’t take advantage of the guided cooking function, with a little bit of practice, it is so simple to convert your own recipes to use with the Thermomix. As with any new technology, it just takes a little investment of time to explore the full potential you have right at your fingertips. The Delivery Briefing (provided by your Thermomix Consultant) & subsequent staff training in the correct use of the Thermomix is vital.
The German designed quality of the Thermomix stands up to the rigours of restaurant life. It is recommended to have a 2nd bowl blade & lid set, to speed up kitchen processes even more. All the parts are dishwasher safe (obviously not the base.)
The commercial warranty is 1 year, you have the full back up & support from your Thermomix consultant. Occasionally the blades need replacing costing only $115.
Many well known chefs are Ambassadors for Thermomix in Australia. You may have seen the Thermomix on cooking programs such as MasterChef Australia & Chef’s Table where many of the worlds top restaurants use a Thermomix.
Thermomix in Australia are developing a site called Kitchen Stars to feature restaurants & chefs who use a Thermomix. Renowned Spanish restaurant elBulli had 36 Thermomix to ensure perfect cooking for dishes requiring a constant temperature.
A chef recently mentioned to me they prefer to work in a kitchen that has a Thermomix.
It’s well worth mentioning that Thermomix are very popular in schools both in the cooking classes & canteens.
If you would like to see how the Thermomix can work for you in your commercial setting you can contact a commercially trained Thermomix consultant for an in-house demonstration. (Yes I am a commercially trained consultant ;-))
I have seen Thermomix at many places all over the world -maybe you would like to do some Thermospotting too?
