Thermomix France
« on: August 28, 2011, 09:29:28 am »
I have been on my computer searching for all things Thermomix, what a surprise????

I found this amazing list coming out of Thermomix France.  Sadly, if you are unable to read French it may be a little challenging but do take a peek at the "format" of this link.

http://www.vorwerk.com/fr/thermomix/pdf/index_livres_tm31.pdf

It is a complete list of all recipes and it also shows which book each recipe comes from.  Such a snazzy idea I think.  Is there an Australian version of this list?  Would be great if HO could compile one.

So interesting to see the different recipes.   Oeurf mimosas, hopefully that isn't champas & orange with an egg in it. I think I'd love a French book just to try and translate and maybe help Thermie and my French hubby bond (they don't talk to each other, TMX tries but DH just turns up the TV).

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!

i love the french books and like ive said before its a pity they arent translated except for the 3 international books...they also have open days for book launches...another one in a bit over a week...if you want one or two of the recipes translated I can obviously help but cant go translating the whole book !!  They have a bread book that I really like and I find the french recipes are better tested in general compared to say teh EDC that has had so many problems in the past...  I wish I spoke more than two languages...DH speaks three but there are heaps of recipes in spanish also....but its like the asian book available in oz just wouldnt work over here....there isnt that influence in the food over here and most people dont like that kind of cuisine not to mention alot more difficult getting certain ingredients..

Yep :  it's a great way to select which book to get too.
I've ordered A table avec TMX and 1001 pates last week thanks to my parents who live in France (thanks Frozzie for your "conseils"  :))  Cecilia you must have been lucky:  my consultant couldn't get any French books here in Oz.
Once I have the books I'll be happy to translate some recipes  :)

Frozzie - which French books would you recommend?  I don't speak it, but have access to several folk who do.

Didn't contact head office but my consultant contacted her group leader who contacted head office...  standard procedure apparently  :o  Anyway, apparently no french book available at the moment from Aussie HO. 
I'm looking forward to get the books: 've been checking the mail box every day and I don't usually worry that much about mail  ;D (our mail box is located 2.5km away from our house...)

We're not on a big property and the road is only 700m away but, because there's only 4 family living on a 4k stretch of road, we can't have our mailbox at the front gate  :( ...so it's in a "clump" of mailboxes at a cross road.
The parcels I've sent to France usually arrive in 10 to 15 days but it's not always as quick the other way around, especially at Christmas time!  Every year I say I'll be more organised with my Christmas shopping and every year I rush around so my parcels found their way under my parents- grandmas Christmas trees  :P  oh well, must be the same for lots of bi-nationals... maybe!

oh ok..so how long ago did your mum send them???  I hate waiting for parcels too...I usually make a list of parcels on their way..the worst is when they are so big that they need to go by sea and take months...painful!!!! haha

Faffa, the first email I sent to Thermomix France (typed in French) was forwarded to TMX Australia then passed onto my consultant via her branch manager... all very odd.   My consultant advised me to contact her for any book ordering in Oz.  For the French books I ended up recontacting TMX France to organise payment and delivery thanks to my parents.  Not to sure what happened the first time around...

Frozzie, books sent last Wednesday:  not too long to wait now  :)
