Madame Thermomix is an independent Thermomix demonstrator, afficionado and fan located on the Surrey/Hampshire border of the UK. She runs a small catering company called Food and Wine with a Wow Factor, and with her husband organises 8-course wine tasting dinners for private clients and as fundraisers for Tongham Village Hall. Former Chef Proprietor of Le Bistro du Lac in Raymond, Maine, USA and former long-term resident of Paris and Le Havre, France, she brings her tri-cultural food and wine experience to Why is There Air.
The name of this blog is derived from a favourite comedy album by Bill Cosby. In a sketch intitled “The $75 Car” Cosby relates his experiences at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (where Madame Thermomix was born) and his amorous relationship with a very intelligent , brilliant woman (very much like Madame Thermomix). Said brilliant woman is portrayed as walking around her house spouting some of life’s burning questions such as “Why is there air?”
You can listen to this sketch via The Internet Archives’ Audio Archive. Some readers may find it a bit outdated, but it made Madame Thermomixlaugh uncontrollably when she was younger…
