Restaurant Club is a great night out in a top restaurant based around a theme – it might be an ingredient (truffles! indigenous spices!) or a cuisine (Turkish food for entertaining) or Thermomix (my favourite cooking machine!).

Everyone is welcome. These events are always fun, educational and delicious!

On Thursday June 13, 2019 I took my Restaurant Club to Brisbane’s magnificent e’cco restaurant.

Owner-chef Philip Johnson and his talented team prepared a magnificent five-course meal with matched Victorian wines. The menu incorporate indigenous Australian ingredients, and there were plenty of Thermomix tricks discovered throughout the evening.

My Restaurant Club events are always entertaining, surprising and incredibly delicious, a must for all food-lovers… join me at my next event.

Gwen Butcher Shop & Restaurant, Los Angeles, USA

I went to LA to teach, cook and showcase Victorian ingredients & Thermomix alongside Curtis Stone. It was incredibly satisfying and fun to share the good news about Victoria’s culinary bounty at gorgeous Gwen restaurant.

What an awesome crowd we had there too, with people coming from across the US and even all the way from Australia to join us! More pics & videos coming soon. Many thanks to Cobram Estate USA, AustSuperfoods, Beechworth Honey, Gamila at Beechworth, Four Pillars Gin, Visit Melbourne and ELK for supporting this event.

Check out some of the photos from the event here and stay tuned as I will be adding more images very soon.

Take a peek at some highlights from Restaurant Club events.

Vue de monde, Melbourne

It doesn’t get better than a degustation dinner 55 floors above the city of Melbourne at Vue de monde. Chef Justin James amazing menu and easy banter had my 90 guests swooning.

Huxtable, Melbourne

The very first Thermomix Restaurant Club event was held at Melbourne’s Huxtable in April 2015. Chef Daniel Wilson’s fine dining menu with Asian flavours wowed my guests and a fun night was had by all.

Pei Modern, Sydney

Were you at Thermomix Restaurant Club in Sydney? Look how much fun we had! Chefs Mark Best and Matt Germanchis played tag team with the menu, creating a night that was tasty, inspiring and convivial.

Hellenic Republic, Kew

I did a pre-Christmas event with chef George Calombaris and chef Alex Xinis in the magnificent private dining room at Hellenic Republic. Great food, stellar hosts and lovely guests made it a night to remember.

Hotel Hotel, Canberra

For the second Thermomix Restaurant Club, 65 Thermo-fans enjoyed a five (well, actually seven) course meal at Canberra’s super cool Hotel Hotel. I brought Melbourne pastry chef Pierre Roelofs along and he teamed up with Sean McConnell to create a brilliant feast.

E’cco in Brisbane

Oh, I just loved this night! We were hosted by owner Philip Johnson and his talented chef Simon Wright. As well as the food, Simon spoke so thoughtfully about the way he uses Thermomix in the restaurant. As you can see, people had lots of fun!

ThermoBar at Turning Point, Melbourne

My first ever Thermomix cocktail party was everything I could have hoped for. Four delicious Thermomix cocktails, five amazing snack, a cooking demo from chef Jose Chavez and a ‘Negroni race’, in which bartender Nate and chef Jose raced to see who could make the quickest Negroni. Want to make your own Negroni? Here’s a recipe!

Massi Truffle Dinner

A trufflicious evening in a lovely Melbourne restaurant. Guests enjoyed a talk from truffle farmer Adrian Utter (see his farm), a display from Darren’s Brimfeldt Australian Shepherds truffle dogs, and five courses of truffle dishes from chef Joseph Vargetto. Thanks to Winestockvic for the beautifully matched Italian wines (plus a lovely local Bellvale Pinot Noir).
