So here we are …. a new cooking adventure with my brand new kitchen appliance the Cuisine Companion by Tefal

I am so excited to be on this new journey learning a brand new machine and exploring new and exciting recipes plus revisiting all my old recipes with fresh eyes and new recipes !

I can hear lots of gasps and many questions “but what about the Thermomix” “but what about us” “what about all your recipes that you have on here and your facebook page created using the Thermomix… ”
Well let me just put your fears at ease in that all the recipes based around using the Thermomix TM31 will remain right here on this page.  Having said that I would ask that you please read my disclaimer HERE

All the Thermomix recipes I have previously created will remain
( I am working my way through putting them all into a parent category – Thermomix Recipes to make it easier for you to find them )
However I am no longer going to be creating any new recipes in the Thermomix.

With that being covered I would now like to share my new venture – Introducing the Tefal Cuisine Companion

Why are the scales separate and not integrated into the machine ? I believe this is two fold , one so that the weight increment is in 1 gram measurements giving a far more accurate measurement very important in baking ! and also so your food items are measured before adding in to other ingredients !
Another Fantastic feature of these scales is that they weigh up to 5 kilos !

In April the company is launching the very exciting NEW Accessories of a external steamer and wait for it a

GRATER / SHREDDER !!! can you believe that ! You will be able to grate / shred straight into the bowl ! Then store the accessory in the Bowl !

Watch below with the external steamer attachment and the Grater/shredder accessory.

 

 

Lets talk Size ! Size really does matter because its the difference between leftovers for lunch the next day or not HA ! Or just to feed a bigger family. With a large 2.5 bowl with a total working capacity of 4.5 litre you really are able to feed a large family and or have leftovers .

For the special things in my kitchen I have never been anything but a Hand Wash kind of gal but all parts are 100% dishwasher safe .

Lets talk Ease ! We all have busy lives and we want to simplify and make things less time consuming with the Cuisine Companion you have six automated functions available to you & a manual function.

 

Sauce , Soup, Slow Cook, Steam, Pastry, Dessert and Manual

Change can be scary but Change can also be amazing and I am really excited to be on this new path  I will be posting all about the features and functions and awesome recipes in the upcoming weeks and months. Along with all the regular posts and giveaways that I do.
