Gosh lightning has nothing on you Judy.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Yes, it's all ready and waiting girls - now it's up to you all to start cooking and posting reviews.  I don't have my book so I can't join you yet.

You are on the ball! (No surprises there!!)

I am assured your book is in the mail JD, had the discussion (again) this morning…
Let me know when it gets there.

As I live in Perth, can I order the book and pick it up instead of paying for delivery?

My partners mum raced down and got the last copy from Book Caffe in Swanbourne - this morning. She saw mine last night and wanted to steal it for a b'day gift for someone - I had to point out that unless she was buying for someone else named Shannon, my signed copy was useless!

So in short - no more in Swanbourne for the time being!

Yes you can Hools, where abouts are you? You will need to pay cash on pick up. We have the following locations Greenwood, Landsdale, Subiaco, or Nollamara. We would need to organise it if so.

Not sure about the eastern states yet, but will certainly let you know as soon as I know. I believe unique artsy bookstores will definitely stock it, though they will go quick, 2 WA stores ran out of stock today…hahahaha. (They only had 12 each I think, but still…pretty happy about that!)

Please stay tuned….not long now!

I was so excited went into Corna Books in Mandurah Forum  and they were just taken them out of the box, think they had 10, the lady made me laugh she had no idea what a thermomix was , but was impressed with the pictures. Now I am going to have a cuppa and sit back with my book and enjoy  ;D

Ordered at 6.00am Friday morning and arrived at the PO yesterday.  That is what I call service  ;D ;D ;D
DH couldn't understand why I had to open the box in the car,  especially as I told him that this was his Valentine pressie for me.

I have read the book from cover to cover, and have made EVERY recipe in my mind.  I am exhausted. What I like........
It is a good physical size to handle.
Good quality paper which has a nice tactile feel.
It lays open at each page, with 1 recipe to a page.
It has been produced in Australia.
A close up of the dish on each page communicates exactly how it should look.
The instructions are clear and simple.
As might be expected,  there are lots of sweet things
There are about 20 mains,  but most of the Sides could be turned into mains with the addition of some grilled, roasted or BBQ meat.
I love the Pantry Basics and the Starters and Snacks.

Criticisms.  Not many and very personal

Fresh yeast is used where yeast is called for.  I find this product unreliable and prefer dried yeast.
The soups don't offer anything very different to what I make,  with the exception of the Chorizo, French lentil and Sweet potato soup.  This will probably be the first recipe to try.

Is it worth $60?  Which is the price plus postage.  Definitely.
Will I use it, definitely.

How does it compare with other Glossy TMX books.
It offers  something completely different to the other books ,  and a challenge to the way I think about some recipes and this can only be good. You can hear Tenina talking to you about the recipes.  I like this,  it is not slick.

Congratulations Tenina.
