I have been really enjoying forming a team of Independent Thermomix Demonstrators here in the UK. One of the most rewarding aspects is dealing with other people who love Thermomix and appreciating their different personalities. And then there’s the wonderful bonus of appreciating the recipes they create, too
One of my team members is very creative and uses her Thermomix several times a day, cooking for up to 40 people on the weekends and still finding time to make lovely gifts to take to her demonstrations. I don’t know how she does it, but she does it well! Here is one of the most mouth-watering recipes she has come up with yet. It’s perfect for taking along as a host gift to a Christmas party, or just make up several batches and give them as homemade foodie gifts. Enjoy!
