Who is Madame Thermomix?
About Why is There Air and Madame Thermomix
Spontaneously nicknamed by a group of French bloggers in London, Madame Thermomix loves her Best Friend in the Kitchen – so much so that it goes virtually everywhere with her. She has two Thermomix in her kitchen outside Paris, France, and another Thermomix in her farmhouse kitchen in the vineyards of Sancerre, in the centre of France. To share her passion for this kitchen revolution, Madame Thermomix creates recipes for you and your family to enjoy. She and ThermoHubby John hope you enjoy them!
Former Chef Proprietor of Le Bistro du Lac in Raymond, Maine, USA, former long-term resident of Paris and Le Havre, France, and having recently left the UK after ten years, Madame Thermomix brings her tri-cultural food and wine experience to Why is There Air. Four years of demonstrating Thermomix in the UK and intensive Thermomix cooking add to her knowledge of all things gastronomically Thermomix.
The name of this blog is derived from a favourite comedy album by Bill Cosby. In a sketch entitled “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 Some readers may find it a bit outdated, but it made Madame Thermomix laugh uncontrollably when she was younger…
The World Wide Web is an anonymous, lonely place so do please leave a comment here and make Madame Thermomix’s day!
