Reading last week’s The Sunday Times (its been a bit of a busy week so I’m a week behind my Sunday papers!) I discovered Thermomix rated a number one mention by two of the chefs featured in the taste.com.au section cover story entitled “Tools of the Trade”.
Russell Blaikie (chef-partner of Must Winebar in Perth and Must Margaret River) and Stephane Gruson (Jean Pierre Sancho) both rated a first mention as their kitchen must-haves.
Russell Blaikie stated “It’s like having an apprentice in the kitchen at home to do the stirring, cooking, chopping, kneading – and it even cleans itself. Love that German technology!”.
Stephane Gruson echoes similar sentiments saying “It is made in Germany primarily for home use, but you will find it in many of the world’s top kitchens, including El Bulli in Spain and the Fat Duck in England. It stirs, grinds, chops, minces, grates, mixes, kneads, sautes, steams, weighs. There is nothing like it to make a sauce or a macaron filling, as it cooks while it is continuously stirring”.
