As you know I love a bit of a cookbook challenge and my cousin also has a love of cookbooks like I do. So when I visited her in Melbourne in February, we had fun just flicking through the pages of her cookbook collection and I fell in love with The Cook’s Table by Stephanie Alexander. I already have a few of her cookbooks but I love that this one has 25 fun themed menus and photos for every recipe. And the recipes look great too of course!! So my cousin & I decided to do a Julie & Julia style challenge in March to cook as many recipes as we can in this month. I feel like I’m cheating because I have a Thermomix LOL!! I promptly purchased a copy for my self and put rose petals in vodka to make the Rose Petal Liqueur _ It had to steep for a month. I will be going away towards the end of the month but I will take my cookbook with me!! Feel free to join in our challenge it’s going to be delicious fun!!
I’m so excited about this new 28 Day Challenge that will help all our Thermomix customers get the most out of their amazing Thermomix!! I started the Everyday Challenge on Sun 16th Sept so I will be updating this post and instagram with photos of all the recipes I am cooking on the challenge. I will also be doing live videos on my facebook page for every recipe to help you with the inspiration. You can start the 28 day challenge at anytime and there are 3 to choose from : The Everyday Challenge, The Gluten Free Challenge and The Cost Saving Challenge.
Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have & use the #28dayslovemythermomix when you post your own photos on social media to be in the running for some great prizes!! DO YOU ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE?!! DO IT!! DO IT!!
Sign up for the challenge here & you will be emailed an ebook with links to all the recipes for the 28 days. Register on cookidoo for the 30 day free trial to access the recipes on cookidoo.
