Hi JeremyUK, I love breads too and the thought of making sour dough bread is getting me excited.  Love that bread! Conjures up memories of my trip to San Francisco years ago, and having seafood chowder in a sour dough bun....mmmm.

Welcome to the forum and you can look forward to a steep learning curve (that you will love). I'd recommend Tenina's books to get started.

Hi obbie, Yvette, AlexisMarya & Jamberie!

Thank you all for your warm welcomes...thank you for the tips. I've already started saving recipes to use with the thermomix. But have yet to stock up on essential items. Said to my husband yesterday that we should visit Kakulas Brothers in Northbridge when we get back from our holidays, and stock up on spices, dried fruits & nuts, and dry goods for the pantry. Should be a fun visit! :)

yes WenV Kakulas is wonderful, so is weigh and pay if you are NoR. Also a good selection in the Malaga markets.

Thanks, Greyhoundmum!  I live SoR but  may check out the other place if I happen to be that way.

I just got news that my TM is arriving tomorrow. Hooray!!!

Any suggestions for an "easy recipe" to start off with?  I've promised my 5yo that I would make him a slushy like at the shop, and he's all excited by it. Now to look for a healthy slushy recipe...
