Best chef in the world!!
« on: October 22, 2008, 06:38:23 am »
I popped over to Melbourne on the weekend to attend a talk and book launch by Ferran Adria of the Spanish restaurant El Bulli.  He is generally believed to be the best chef in the world and El Bulli, the best restaurant.
As part of his talk he showed some videos of his techniques and what did I spy in his test kitchen but the TM31!!
I do wonder why Thermomix here in Oz aren't all over things like this.  The Hamer Hall had 1,500 foodies and chefs listening to this man and I heard people mention the Thermomix - but only to say they didn't have one or hadn't seen them!

Hi Amanda

Yes, and the measuring cup was generally upside down - maybe for visual effect.

Pat Nourse wrote  an article describing the Thermomix as a piece of "specialised gear" - so we are pretty advance.

Shannon Bennett at Vue de Monde has a TM31 and TM21, Grossi Florentino has at least one TMX, Tetsuya has a TMX (and really likes many of its features), Ben Shewry at Attica, many others  - but you don't hear about it. 

Yes, Tenina might be able to help - poor thing, she is getting a big list of to-dos.
