Thanks Kathryn.  There were not many in the review section so I had to search everywhere to find more as with different notes I had placed in my book, I knew a lot more of the recipes had been done.  In the very early days Thermomixer posted heaps of recipes from the book so I went through those which had comments made.  There are a lot there that no-one commented on so if anyone is interested in seeing some of these recipes, click on Thermomixer's name to go into his profile then go to the highest number of his postings and work your way back through them.  You will find so many recipes he translated from the Italian version of the book way back in 2008. He did a wonderful job as one of our first Moderators.
If anyone remembers commenting on a recipe and that recipe has not been added to the list, please let me know where the comment is and I will put the link on the list.
That's 2 books done, many more to do though.

Good on you Judy! That's going to make it much easier for people who are looking to buy the book as well as those who already have it.  :-*
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Judy, you will never cease to amaze me. You are truly the forum star. This will be very helpful to everyone.

So how many, if any, of the recipes from the Varoma demo are in this book? And if they aren't, do you get a copy of them once you've done your Varoma demo?

The Varoma demo recipes are separate, Tasty.  Whenever possible, at your demonstration, your consultant will give you a set of recipe cards of the recipes presented.  Berry Fruity Dream is in EDC on p149 and the dip is on p54 (EDC).  Pizza dough is in EDC on p111.  It's a fab lot of food.  BTW, I'm just going off to a Varoma demo at the moment, so I'd better get on with my preparation.  :)

so why is it only Celica reviewing and no one else. :-\

I have this book, but not made much in it.


My Thermomix,  Kitchen Aid, Pizza oven, Nu Wave 5 in 1, Spatulas, all brings love, laughter, happiness, and great food  to my kitchen.

Who knows, obbie?  I guess everyone else is doing their housework.   ;D

Ok I will review it. I think it is crap for the same reasons I think the Community recipe cookbook is crap. In addition it is a European production by Vorwerk. An utter waste of money.

Anyone wants my copy can have it. I will mail it for free to the first person who wants it just to get it out of my bookcase.

I just had a look through the contents and have to say you're right Gert. THe only thing that sounds somewhat appealing is the stuffed chicken pockets. Have you made those?

Yuk no.

I did make the ones fro FFS and posted a pic somewhere on the forum. They were yummy like all Tenina's recipes.

I must admit I have only made a couple of things out of the FSA book too.

One day soon I want to go through the reviews and put a sticker on all the recipes that have reviews from the books. Then if I haven't tried them I will do so. One day!
