I don’t know about you, but I feel a bit like I have just re surfaced from the longest Summer school holidays yet and somehow my love of cooking made way for a conveyor belt of meals… which never seemed to switch off!
So I am now feeling rather inspired to enjoy the best of Autumnal produce and food that I want to cook!
The first reason for this inspiration is that I have been enjoying watching the Australian version of Masterchef, which dare I say it, is SO different from the English one. Anyone Australian reading this- please don’t give away who wins, as I am sure we must be months behind you in the TV scheduling!! I am not much of a couch potato, but this is one show that is very addictive and is really fun to watch. Even my children now enjoy watching it with me and cheering on the winning red or blue team!
With exciting team challenges at the most glorious of food establishments, vineyards and farms in and around Melbourne and individual cooks doing their thing just showcasing food at it’s best… I am definitely inspired to get back in my kitchen again.
Another great thing about Masterchef Australia (on WATCH HD if you want to check it out!!) is that they are always using their Thermomix in the kitchen. They seem to whip up pretty much everything in there to accompany the dish they are making, be it a sorbet,mousses, curds, foams etc… I am going to be back in my kitchen whipping up a storm too, with new and different recipes for you to try out.
If you have heard the name Thermomix, but want to learn more and find out what all the excitement is about… please get in touch. I offer demonstrations of this amazing kitchen appliance and have a few dates left before Christmas.
The final thing that has inspired me is reconnecting with important people in my life. Taking time out of my busy life to stop, breathe and pick up the phone, to talk, reminisce and laugh. I have had such a conversation this last week and I think we motivated each other to follow our dreams… you know who you are, thank you for being you!
Keep a watch out- my Super Soups coming soon…..
