Desserts / Quince, Tomato and Coconut Custard
« on: September 06, 2011, 02:10:17 pm »

Hi everyone.  I absolutely love the Thermomix custard and am always on the lookout for new flavour twists.

I just thought I'd share with you one I tried tonight:

One jar Quince and Tomato Jam (made in pre-Thermomix days and sitting in the cupboard - contained plenty of sugar)
One 400g can coconut milk
Approx 100g cream
4 eggs
40g cornflour

Cook on 90 degrees for nine minutes - speed 4.


This was just a random concoction, but all the same I wanted to share, as I was quite proud that it worked out.

Someone else could probably make something similar from first principles, rather than using the jam.  Please share your variations here.

You're not a Thermomix bore, gobaith.  You're simply articulating your feelings - in this case, to an already converted audience.  We are absolutely with you.  I might have been a much healthier person if I'd come across the Thermomix when it first was released in my part of the world, but we can't go backwards.  We can only make up for the time we didn't have the benefits it brings by sharing the news and that's exactly what you're doing.  Thank you.  (And are you in advertising, by the way?  Your subject heading certainly got people reading!)

Love your work, Sammi.  Great posting.  Welcome to you and WELCOME TO YOUR NEW *THERMOMIX*!

This recipe (just as given in the book) went down very well at two cooking classes I've attended.  It is not your usual basic pasta dish and the use of Varoma leads to large servings.  Well worth trying!

Welcome, ElsieD.  You will love your Thermomix.  Keep posting.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi nazar.  I went to an advanced TM  cooking class last night and the trainer (Fiona Hoskin) several times referred to making sure we blend the soup at the end for long enough to make it silky smooth.  We did not have a pumpkin soup amongst ours, but I thought I'd share her advice on your thread.

As others have said, having the Thermomix has given me the confidence, energy and means to cook a whole lot more and so it has engendered more significant change in me that only "changing the way I do thing" - it has helped me change the way I think.  I liken it to when I first learnt first aid.  My whole life just went up a gear!  I have become better informed, more conscious, more courageous about food and hosting, more proud and know that the family is proud of me and happy for me that these changes have taken place.  I keep telling people about Thermomix as you never know who you are going to help:  the anxieties and fears that are eradicated when you use a Thermomix daily are buried very deep and only known to our most trusted friends.  If you are wavering about buying a Thermomix for yourself, or buying someone a Thermomix, stop.  Yes, the Thermomix does enable and support change - change for the better.  :)

We tasted this soup at the Advanced Cooking Class in Hobart today.  Beautiful!  Thank you for sharing the recipe.

A Table avec Thermomix is available from Thermomix consultants in Australia, Vivaroo.  I purchased it as I'm studying French and it's a great insight into the culture as well as double bang for my buck study material as I get to see the Thermomix recipes as well as learn all the foodie vocab.  Formidable!

If only my consultant would get back to me.... hmmmmmm

Don't be thinking badly of your consultant, Leesmac78.  If you have expressed interest in being a consultant, your consultant's role is to inform his/her GL and only when the GL has received the written permission form will you hear back ... from the GL, not the consultant.  Look forward to a conversation soon and if things don't happen soon enough, why not get back to your consultant and share the fact that you're keyed up and hoping for developments?

Don't move it yet - I'll add a specific recipe to make it legit, as it's easier to find here.

My Way of Cooking update for those not receiving Thermomix newsletter.

It is at present freely available from your consultant to all customers for $60, and also available half price ($30) as co-payment for a Varoma demo with no sales or FREE for someone who purchases a Thermomix in August 2011.

If you want to have a look through it first (it is a very beautiful and impressive book) come along to a cooking class or contact your consultant.
