What’s so cool about the new model 6 Thermomix?

What’s so cool about the new model 6 Thermomix?

Meet my model 6 Thermomix called Sixier.

It’s the new kid on my kitchen bench the Thermomix model 6 & yes I’ve got 2 already!! You don’t need 2 but it just helps me do my job so well (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it LOL) I’m slowly testing out all the new things to let you know all about them and I will update this post as I go. The best way to check it out is to book a Thermomix Cooking Experience so you can see and taste it all for yourself. See the menu options on the previous post.

Anyway some of the new features and functions the new Thermomix has to offer are wowing off my customers socks !!!
It has a bigger screen and you can log directly into cookidoo to start guided cooking straight away. There are new slow cook & sous vide function available too. The new MC that locks in & the new flexible spatula are very popular. Within guided recipes to you can access higher temperatures for sauteing or sugar work for things like honeycomb (I don’t actually like it but I’ve made it a few times now)

Thermomixing Extravaganza

Thermomixing Extravaganza

Lasagna is the perfect meal to prepare ahead, not only will it’s flavour develop and it will taste better. It’s also a great thing to have in the freezer for a delicious quick and easy week night dinner. It really pays to go to the extra trouble of mincing your own meat and making fresh pasta sheets. YUM!!

Sophia -Thermomix Baking Blogger’s Famous ThermoFive

Sophia -Thermomix Baking Blogger’s Famous ThermoFive

I’m so excited to be working with Sophia Thermomix Baking Blogger including her upcoming Australian Cooking Class Tour starting in Melbourne on the 23rd Nov & finishing in Newcastle on the 7th Dec. Sophia lives in London & is a Thermomix baking expert. She was taught to bake from a young age by her Dad who has been a professional baker for many years. I’m so excited to meet her in real life in a couple weeks time 🙂 I have all her cookbooks and heaps of her products that I absolutely love!! Including the Thermi Ergoslide.

1. What do you love about your Thermomix?

I love that my Thermomix is always on hand when I need it. It makes my baking life so much easier. I could never just whip up a cake in 40 seconds if I didn’t have it. My Thermi gives me the opportunity to be free and creative and have enough time to make a wonderful meal for everyone without having to slave away in the kitchen for hours. It’s just a wonderful helper.

2. What is your favourite Thermomix Cookbook or Thermomix recipe?

I would have to say I’d love to big up my Real Bread book. I am completely obsessed with sourdough bread and this book is full of incredible sourdough bread recipes. It is one of the nicest things you can eat and the fact that Thermomix can make it so easily is a huge bonus. My book Real Bread is also full of amazing tips on sourdough baking and how to get the process started. I’ve been a sourdough fan since I was a child and my Dad the baker taught all I know today about sourdough baking. 

3. What is your top Thermomix tip?

I think by far my favourite Thermomix tip is that you can use the measuring cup to cut out the most adorable scones, cookies or any other biscuits. You don’t even need a cookie cutter and besides those shapes you can use the TM5 measuring cup to make a cute Easter egg or butterfly shape. Love it.
4. What is your quick & easy go to Thermomix meal?

I love a good bolognese. We make it once a week at home and I always use the recipe for Chorizo bolognese from my book Practice Mix Perfect. It’s quick, it’s easy and super delicious. We always make enough to have some leftovers the next day. If I want to mix it up I make meatballs instead which can also be found in my booklet Bella Italia.

5. Which Thermomix recipe/s do you want to try next?

I am currently really trying to make gluten free sourdough bread so that’s next on my bucket list to tick off. It’s a bit of a tricky one but, hey, I’ve got a Thermomix.

 

Thanks so much Sophia for your inspiring answers to my my Famous ThermoFive questions, see more Famous ThermoFive interviews here.
