I couldn’t think of a better way to say goodbye to 2020 than with Bruny Island Oysters & when I saw they had a special pack with all their condiments too I was all in!!
Well what can we say about the year that was 2020? It was crazy, unbelievable & for so many of us so very challenging. I think I went through each an every emotion at some stage through the year. However I choose to focus on the positives. So many amazing, unique experiences & memories were made in 2020. I actually enjoyed staying at home, it made me just stop & appreciate everyone & everything I have in my world. I thank you all!! I loved travelling the world virtually with
Chef Charlie Carrington‘s Atlas Masterclass, making his 3 recipes from a different country every week has been lots of delicious fun!! Being able to have some of my favourite restaurant meals at home was a fun novelty too. It was fun being able to do some online classes & live cooking with Chefs that would normally too busy for these sorts of things. I loved Ben Shewry & Hamish Blakes live cook a longs on Instagram & Jock Zonfrillo had a great cook-a-long too.
I thought I would not be earning an income because we couldn’t do face to face Thermomix demonstrations but because most people were at home cooking more they were ready to buy themselves a Thermomix!! I am so very grateful to my wonderful customers who referred me to their friends. I think I enjoyed cooking, eating & drinking a little bit too much & yes I need to be a bit more healthy this year to get rid of my covid kilos/food baby!!
Cheers to you all, wishing you a happy & healthy new year!! Happy Thermomixing everyone!!
Oh WOW I really love all of Eloise Emmetts cookbooks & recipes but I think this new one is my favourite!! Nothing to do with the fact I am a hand model in the book but also on the front cover!! Yes that is my hand holding the glass of Bream Creek Pinot Noir, it’s a tough job but someone has to do it!! I’ve also cooked some recipes from her Seafood Everyday cookbook too!! And recipes from the first Tasmania Pantry Cookbook as well.

Thermomix Veggie Stock Paste
This veggie stock paste is a good base for a lot of savoury recipes – 1 tablespoon is equivalent to 1 stock cube.
Please have all your ingredients ready as per the picture shown – the best bit is you don’t need to cut things up too much now that you own a Thermomix!! This recipe is really adaptable, if you are missing a couple of the ingredients it won’t matter. You may also like to add leek or mushrooms to the recipe.
Have some containers or jars ready to store your veggie stock paste it will make about 1 litre & because of the salt content it will keep for up to 6 months in the fridge. (You will use it up before then I promise) You can also store it in the freezer but it won’t actually freeze if you use the full amount of salt.
Veggie Stock Paste
200g celery, chopped into thirds - keep light coloured leaves on 2 carrots, chopped into rough pieces 1 onion, peeled halved 1 tomato, halved 1 l large zucchini, chopped roughly into pieces 2 cloves garlic, peeled 1 bay leaf 1 bunch parsley, fresh few leaves basil,fresh few leaves sage, fresh 1 sprig rosemary 150 grams rock salt 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil We will follow the guided recipe to cook this recipe - Instructions are in the Basic Cook Book.

Thermomixers 30 Day Challenge Converting Recipes to the Thermomix
Wow these crazy times we live in at the moment have seen some terrible things happen but also some inventive and amazing things too. So I love this idea that Chef Charlie Carrington and his team came up with to have Masterclasses with 3 recipes a week and each week will be a different country’s cuisine. If you are lucky enough to live in Melbourne you can order the box of ingredients for the week and then cook along at home while you watch the
YouTube Atlas Masterclass If we can’t travel the world right now we may as well taste it in our own kitchens. I have been doing the DIY version and having to make up parts of the recipes myself as some of the ingredients boxes includes parts of the recipes already completed like the spice mixes, pickles or sauces. This really has been a delicious journey so far and I am definitely along for the culinary trip around the world with Charlie & his team. I’m so grateful to be able to join in and already have been introduced to some new recipes, ingredients and spices to make & taste.
