New Thermomix Book.....Quick Fix In The Thermomix.
« on: December 26, 2011, 03:31:40 am »
A new book of Thermomix recipes is about to hit the market.  It is  Quick Fix In the Thermomix.  by  Alyce Alexandra  I have been lucky to be given a copy.  I have not as yet made anything from it but the recipes are simple, straight forward, well set out and each is accompanied by a photo.  The Photos are close ups and beautiful.
The aim of the book is for simple recipes that can be made in 30 mins or a little more and are healthy.  Cyndi O'Meara supports the book.
As far as I can tell, Alyce does not 'pinch' and adapt others recipes.  This I find refreshing.  The 'blurb" on the back states that these are gourmet recipes to be created at home. If this is the case then Forum Thermomix should consider changing its name to Gourmet Forum Thermomix.  This is not to put down this interesting book,  but rather reflects the high standard of many of the Forum recipes.
I have no idea what the cost will be but, $2 from the sale of each book will go to the charity, The Hunger Project Australia.
There is a web site    www.alycealexandracookbooks.com    I haven't had a chance to check this out.

Unfortunately we are off for a weeks hol early tomorrow and I will not be able to test any of the recipes until i come home. Blast. :-)) :-)) :-)).. 

Happy New Year to all Forum members.

Chookie, in your opinion, is it worth $50 from your quick look through?

Chookie is there any chance you could provide us with the index?

Like JulieO I would like to know whether it is worth $50

Thanks DG xxx

Gosh we are getting a few TMX cookbooks around. This one looks interesting too. I THINK I will wait for Tenina's book.

Julie,  I would pay $50 for it ,( I am a cook book junkie), but you would have to include postage.  When i first looked at it I estimated that it was in the $40/60 bracket.  There are many similar recipes on the Forum,  but these are all  just a bit different.  For example,  there is a recipe for Creme Fraiche,  the difference being that it is placed in a thermos,  where as I just leave it on the bench.  I think there are only 3 bread recipes, I always look at these first. ;D ;D There is a sweet bun recipe which i will try first as it has 14 g. of yeast.  this seems too much for the amount of flour,  however it is heavily spiced and this will retard the yeast.  In the end it will all come down to how well the recipes have been tested.

DG,  yes .  However i have packed the book to take away tomorrow.  In a day or two ,  I will post the index,  however i don't think this will tell you very much.  I feel that a lot of care has been put into the TMX process of each recipe. And you would have to decide if the recipes are different enough to what is available on the forum.

I think the question that should be asked, is if i am going to buy just 1 new TMX book,  should I wait to see Tenina's.?  I know that I will buy Tenina's as from looking at her Blog,  I know it will be very creative with very interesting ideas and recipes.

Chookie, we will all be waiting with baited breath for you to return and try some of the recipes.  When the author is unknown, it does tend to make us a little more cautious but I have signed up to the link you gave us and have printed out the Strawberry Yoghurt Sorbet - I could only find 3 recipes on that site at the moment.

Thanks so much Chookie for your reply.  I too will wait for your reviews and then decide.  I'm really looking forward to Tenina's book and will buy that regardless of what the index is  ;D  I just know they will be good recipes.  :D
