Hi everyone,

Chit Chat / Bread cooked in Varoma?
« on: May 30, 2012, 01:37:27 pm »
Hi all,
As our kitchen is being build at the moment I don't have an oven, I only have my thermo and a microwave. I miss having fresh bread and just remembered that I have seen somewhere here that it is possible to cook-bake bread in the varoma. I would appreciate it very much if anyone can tell me where to find such recipe. I have looked without success. Thanks :)

INAID  I used 3 X rashers of bacon and half a red onion. After I steamed the zucchinis I sprinkled them with breadcrumbs and grated vintage cheese then cooked them in the Airfryer. Fresh from our garden. First of the crop.

Hi, my name is Desi. I am new in this forum. I love using my TM and at the moment I'm interest in finding a three compartment bread pan that are especially made for baking baguettes. Does anyone know where I can buy them in Oz?
