You’ll often see chefs using Thermomix, some celebrity chefs who have been seen with with them on tv and in their restaurants include Heston Blumental, James Martin, Le Manoir, Harrods chocolate hall, Antonio Bachour

Bake Magazine asked Antonio: How can bakers and pastry chefs best  the Thermomix to craft desserts and pastries?

Antonio Bachour: Bakers and pastry chefs can use the Thermomix to do almost 100% of the preparation for both desserts and bread – including all creme anglaise, curds, sable, mousse, glazes, breads, and dough, etc. As you can see, I use the Thermomix to do nearly everything. It gives you the perfect texture, allows for 70% less in preparation time, and above all, delivers on precision and consistency for each and every recipe.

I’ve had people say, more than once, ‘I don’t need a Thermomix, I’m a good cook’. I always find this strange but I think it’s probably because they haven’t seen a demo and they see the guided cooking and think it’s for those who can’t cook. That’s definitely not the case and most top restaurants will have a Thermomix in the kitchen.

I believe the TM6 is for everyone and it’s my job to help you see where it would aid you in the kitchen. If you’re a fabulous chef you’ll use it differently to those who feels they can’t even boil an egg successfully (yes the egg boiler mode should help you there too!)  Many a can’t cook/won’t cook person has been converted by the TM6 which is always wonderful to hear.

Lots of chefs have a soft spot for the TM31, Heston Blumental apparently has 13 Thermomix at the Fat Duck in Bray – my friend has visited and said he has an entire room for them.
So what do they use them for? Lots of different things.
Limewood hotel use them for the base to all their ice creams.
Le Manoir in Oxford use them for their sauces
I have a chef at a golf course in Surrey who uses his to do sorbet for big weddings, he pre-makes the elderflower and prosecco sorbet, freezes it and just churns it in the Thermomix before serving.
I’ve seen Heston on MasterChef using them for all sorts of weird things
The chocolate counter in Harrods use them for their ganache
Chewton Glen use them and James Martin has been spotted using them on TV many a time
The list goes on

I find the general theme with chefs is that they often use the very precise temperature on the Thermomix and the fact they don’t need an extra person to stir either.
