Another Canadian, eh!
« on: December 04, 2009, 12:56:22 am »
Hey Gang,

The name's Kerry, and I live in Ontario, Canada. 

I have been a proud owner of a slightly used TM31 for a few months now. My initial interest in the TMX was for the purpose of making ganaches for chocolate centers, but I've found quite a variety of other uses for it - and am having great fun adapting various recipes.

This site has been a great source of inspiration and help to me - I don't have any of the cookbooks that others get with the TMX and didn't attend any demos so I'm teaching myself.  I'm also operating without a varoma - someday I'll get one and that will expand my repertoire I'm sure. 

Hoping after a while I can teach you folks as much as you've taught me.

Welcome chocdoc. Curious as to why you didn't get the varoma when you got the machine?

Well I bought the TM31 used, and apparently at the time it was purchased it didn't come with a varoma.

Hi & welcome Kerry.  Glad this forum has been useful to you already - that's what we are here for.  Did the previous owner not pass on any cookbooks with the machine? We all got one free with ours.  Have fun, looking forward to hearing some of the things you do with your TMX.

Welcome Kerry,

nice to see another Canadian from Ontario  :). In which area do you live? I'm wondering why your machine came without a cookbook ? How old is your TM31? Can't wait to read your ganache recipes.

Thermomixer, you should post Bron's Dulce de Leche on egullet - they didn't seem too sure how to make it in the TMX.

welcome chocdoc - I thought TM31 always came with the varoma. I can't wait for your contributions after having a peek at egullet! And our beloved andiesenji originated there too by the looks.  ;)

Welcome to the forum Kerry.

Hi chocdoc. I am sure you can tell us a lot about chocolate making. You will love your thermomix. I used to spend my early summers on Lake Ontario. Originally I came from Syracuse but have lived in Australia for 45 years.

I'm just a few miles down the way from you in Burlington.  I spent a fair bit of my misspent youth in Rockwood.

Feel free to wander down to my place and look through the molds if you need some - probably have a thousand or so.
