Hi guys,

Some new videos have just been added to my You Tube channel, go subscribe if you want. Then you can comment and won't miss any updates.

Hope you like. The Fresh Rice noodles I think is much easier when you have seen the video.

Happy Sunday. :D

 :D :D :D :D :D

Hi guys,
Yes it is here, my little self published project has arrived in the country and will be available at cooking classes in Mandurah, Perth and NSW from tomorrow. It is a little book with 21 delicious dinners using your thermomix. It is hardy enough to bang around in your handbag so you can take it to the store to get ingredients. Dinner Spinner can be purchased online at from the morning of November 23rd.
Feedback so far is excellent, so I hope you will all jump at getting one. It has photos for every recipe and will prove to be well used I hope! At $15 it is a great hostess gift for Christmas, a great gift for someone who has a thermomix in your life and of course, fantastic to have yourself…(otherwise you wouldnt be on here right??)
Looking forward to hearing how you all feel about it…this is not the BIG one, FYI, this is a just a teaser to keep you keen! hahaha, For Foods Sake is out mid December and is full colour, pic for every recipe, 80+ recipes, gorgeous, gorgeous, (did I say gorgeous?) book that you will just LOVE…

…and this is just the beginning!  ;D ;D

Starters and Snacks / Umami Paste recipe
« on: September 03, 2011, 07:15:35 am »
Umami Paste
20-30 servings
300g Roma tomatoes, cubed

90g Parmesan, cubed

80g toasted walnuts

5g Dulse sea vegetable, flakes (available from some Health Food shops)

5g good Balsamic vinegar

2-3 anchovy fillets
Place tomatoes into Thermomix bowl and cook for 10 min/100°C/Reverse + speed 1.

Press cooled pulp through a fine sieve and separate solids from liquids. (See below for ideas to use solids) Reserve liquid to use in Umami.

Place Parmesan and walnuts into clean, dry Thermomix bowl and mill for 8 sec/speed 9.

Add all remaining ingredients and blend for 30 sec/speed 4, scraping down as necessary.

Serve on crostini, as is.

Add to a cheese platter as a spread.

Stir through hot soups, bolognaise sauce, curries, and any other savoury dishes as needed.

Blend 1-2 tbsp Umami paste through freshly made butter with some flat leaf parsley and lemon juice for a delicious U-Butter to top a grilled steak, fish, or as an alternative to garlic or herb butter.

Add to risotto or stir through hot cooked pasta with chopped herbs and EVOO for a quick and easy meal.

Rub onto uncooked chicken breast, wrap breast in sliced mozzarella and bacon and cook on hot grill.

Dehydrate tomato solids in warm oven on piece of baking paper for as long as it takes for it to become brittle. Mill and add to powdered stock…recipe to come!

You can use Nori for flavour, just blitz it first in the TMX, but Dulse is a superfood and is really a great addition nutritionally. As for keeping issues, I am using it in almost everything savoury. It is just a great addition to all recipes…lifts them beyond the norm, so never has the chance to go off in my fridge…but freezing is a great option if you don't cook a lot.
Also if you get dulse seaweed instead of flakes, again, just blitz first prior to using. Can add with the parmesan.

Hints from members
Jeninwa - it doesn't last much more than 3 weeks in the fridge.
Hools003 - 5g dulse sea veg flakes = 6 tsp and 5g balsamic vinegar = 1 tsp

Hi guys,

Yes, its me again; Another Souper Bowl (the last one this winter) is happening in Mandurah, (Falcon to be precise!) Please email for bookings. Menu remains the same as other Souper Bowl classes. We are excited and bring cash as we have some treats on sale…

Hope to see you there, Tenina  ;D
