Thermomix International and Translation
« on: May 31, 2009, 04:06:50 pm »
Here's a suggestion that might take a bit of investment to start with, but could simplify the life of everyone here in the long run. Since we have members from all around the world, we have access to cookbooks in several different languages. For example, the basic Thermomix book is available in French, English UK version, English Australian version, German, Italian, Spanish and I'm probably missing some. From what I could figure out, not all versions have the same recipes, and it would be great to know what's available in other books. For example, maybe there's a recipe in the German book that I would love to make, but I'll never know it even existed because I can't read German to save my life. So here's what I'm proposing:

How about we take all the books that we have, and we translate the index in English and post it here? Then this thread can become a reference for recipe ideas, and we can ask for translations of specific recipes as needed.

Translating the index can be a lenghty process, so if you're up to it, I suggest you mention it here so we don't have two people working on the same book. You guys in English speaking countries might be able to find book indexes already typed out on the Net.

What do you think?

I'll start with "À table avec Thermomix", the French everyday cookbook. Let me know in this thread if you want any of those recipes translated.

That's a brilliant idea :D I find it totally frustrating that I cannot speak Italian or Spanish because there are some really interesting recipes (and videos) out there on the web that I would love to try but can't due to language problems.

I can help to translate the index of the German TM book if that helps.

That would be awsome, vivacity!

I'm almost done with the French book. I typed the recipe list in Word, in the original language, and then I copy/pasted those in Google translation. That tool is pretty handy: for about half the recipes it returned the exact translated term, rather than a literal translation. I actually learned lots from it... I had no idea that custard was crème anglaise in French!! I'll add a few comments to clarify the more obscure recipes and I'll post.

I can't help with any unfortunately but I saw some interesting meals in the mains section of the above list that would interest me.  Ours are so boring in our everyday book.

Just let me know which ones you'd like, Judy, and I'll translate and post in the appropriate forums!

Yes, "different" is an appropriate description *g*

Thanks MrSpock, here's my list to start with.

Fillet mignon with mustard
Chicken whites (?) in tomato sauce with mushrooms.
Quail (I'd use chicken) with grapes and sweet wine
Chicken stew
Chicken with peppers, tomato and white wine
Rolls of chicken whites in ham dress (?) and sauce chasseir
And from the vegie section - zucchini gratin provencal.

No hurry, whenever you have the time.  Thanks again.

I think beurre blanc may be mistranslated - it is a butter sauce made with wine and shallots rather than just "white butter"

You're right, of course. I didn't know what it was and I hadn't checked the recipe. Thanks.

Far Breton aux pruneaux - No idea what this is, but here's a picture...


Far Breton is a superb dessert - have a recipe from a Philippe Mouchel cooking class at home.  It is a bit like clafouti - yummo..
