Good point about the cost, for me it was pretty cheap, as no alcohol served until the main dish. My friends would usually have had a few drink by then, and that would have cost! Thanks for the feedback on recipe cards, I will ask

Well I finally plucked up the courage to try this. Used the chicken stock recipe from the EDC and then mixed the stock with some vege stock concentrate, added angel hair pasta noodles, and floated my matzoh balls. I followed the instructions on the box and cooked then in my stock pot on the stove. All ip I was really happy with the result, but I couldn't get my soup to go deliciously yellow and clear. The matzoh balls were a big hit with the visiting children and friend, so will definitely keep going with this recipe. I will also do the balls in the TM next time, now I know hoe easy they are. Thanks everyone for your suggestions

We had a great Varoma demo, but I did feel it didn't really showcase the Varoma that much. I would have liked to see how to do a complete family meal, like rice in the basket, meat and veg in the top. Unfortunately as the host I missed a lot, as I was busy washing up and serving etc. I would have really liked the recipes too, as I still don't have a full steam ahead cookbook, 3 weeks after the demo. All in all I think it presents everything pretty well though. My only other thought is I thought the bread would be steamed, as my consultant had told me how great that recipe is.

We made these on Tuesday as cheesy mite scrolls, kids loved it. Thanks for the recipie!

Taste is very dependent on the variety of lemons, and how long they have been off the tree too. I have made this lots of times now, and found the oldest lemons in the bowl are definitely the best - less pith I think. My mum and dads tree has the best flavor too

Thanks for this ladies, I can't believe it's not in the EDC cookbook, especially as the too easy choc cake is shown iced!

Loving the sound of the portable oven, how hot does it get?

Chit Chat / Re: Consultant selling on Ebay
« on: September 04, 2010, 03:48:27 am »
If thermomix is a member of the direct sales association, then their code of practice prohibits sales on the net, also at shopping centers and shows etc. It is all about each consultant having the same opportunity. It kind of suck though, as Internet sales in my opinion level the playing field for consultants in rural and emote areas who may have a limited number of customers. Active Tupperware girls are only allowed to sell discontinued lines I believe. As a former creative memories girl, I found it annoying that some of the eBay traders told lies, such as "not available in australia". They also undermined the exclusive gifts we used to book more parties. I don't have a problem with people moving old stock.

Thanks for the recommendation. My mum and dad have a small property in the area, and are quite intrigued by what is being offered at the kitchen, but as my mum is a retired home economics teacher she would never pay anyone to teach her to cook! We have a foodie guest spending the weekend with us in October from NY, will investigate taking her there maybe.

Would you recommend a class at the kitchen? Have contemplated taking my DH for our anniversary

Vege stock concentrate I think, it's hard to remember. I made the hollandaise from the EDC, and it worked really well. I tried the cream puffs recently as a guy at a cooking class was talking about how good his were - good flavor but not very puffed! My cooking teacher mum tells me i didn't get the oven right!

Desserts / Pigs bum pudding
« on: August 24, 2010, 02:35:01 am »
[b) name pigs bum pudding: from Nigella Lawson how to eat book, converted
Number of People:6 pr more
Ingredients: 100g rhubarb chopped into 4 cm pieces
125 g of sugar plus 1 tablespoon
125 g self raising flour
125 g soft butter
2 eggs
1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Approximate 3 tablespoons milk

Butter a round bowl and set aside. Place rhubarb and tablespoon of sugar in  *: and cook aroma temp speed 4 for about 5 minutes or until  cooked to a pulp. Set aside to cool.
Put everything else except the milk in the  *: and blend on speed 4 for 1 minute to make a smooth batter. Add the rhubarb and  mix on speed 2 for 10 secs or so. Add the milk a tablespoon or so at a time until smooth and soft. At this point Nigella suggest you dip in a spoon and taste it, not because it achieves anything, but just because she loves the taste!
Pour into bowl, and steam in varoma basket ( no need to cover the pudding bowl) for about an hour. Test with a skewer after about 40 minutes. I have a picture, but will have to post from my other computer. I have made this many times ( only once in the thermomix) and each time is a little different. This time I cooked twice as much rhubarb and served it over the top to make it more rhubarby. It's great with some custard too. I'm sorry i messed up the formatting at the beginning of the post too, first time adding a recipe here!
