Thermoversary – 10 years of Thermomixing & my most popular 10 recipes

I can’t believe it – it’s been 10 years since Thermomix came into my life. And what a little bundle of joy it’s been from the very first day. To celebrate my Thermoversary, I’ve gathered together my top ten most popular recipes. These are the dishes that have been cooked, loved and cooked again…and again…and again… Have you made all of them? Is your favourite here?

Did you know I’m a Thermomix Mythbuster?!

Basque Cheesecake

My most popular recipe EVER and I know why: it’s easy, crazy delicious and makes everyone around you swoon. If you haven’t yet entered Basque Bliss, do it today!

Spaghetti Bolognese

There are plenty of spag bol recipes out there but I’m not afraid to say this one is the best ever! Obviously, lots of people agree with me because it’s one of my most downloaded recipes.


Ah, frosé! It’s pink, it’s slushy, it’s wine and it’s fruit. It’s frozen rosé, aka fro-zay baby! This is my most popular cocktail recipe and I’m not surprised – it’s a darling.

Beef Stir-Fry

There are so many things to love about this recipe. It’s an all-in-one dinner that feeds a crowd. It’s tasty and adaptable: do it with chicken, pork fillet, lamb, or even tofu. So many families enjoy this on a regular basis – you MUST make it if you haven’t already!

Pineapple Spiked Vietnamese Lamb Salad

I love Vietnamese flavours and while this lamb salad isn’t strictly authentic, it’s inspired by the herby freshness and spicy kick of Vietnamese food. Lamb backstrap (or fillet) is a premium product, tender and lean, and it turns this easy salad into a very special meal.

Strawberry Gazpacho

Gazpacho is a cold soup, normally made with tomatoes, but strawberries are the star here. It’s a super-fun recipe, really easy and always gets the conversation going at a gathering.

Emergency Lentil Soup

I’m so happy to have created a recipe that has saved many a dinnertime in many a household. This is a oops-I-forgot-to-make-dinner lifesaver that you’ll also find yourself making on purpose because it’s just so good.

Thai Beef Ribs

Ribs are one of my favourite winter meals and this is an easy, flavoursome way to cook and eat them. Thai spices and aromatic lime give the rich meat a lift, and a peanutty coleslaw adds texture and tone.

Inside-out Chicken Parmigiana

This is one of my all-time most popular recipes, fancy to look at but easy to prepare. People always tell me how happy they are that they gave it a go! Think classic pub flavours with a little extra pizzazz. Importantly, it’s the perfect dish to prepare ahead of time: make your rolls, steam your spuds, then finish it all off when the family is clamouring.

Elaine’s Chocolate Cake

Top chef Ben Shewry shared his grandmother’s chocolate cake and it’s become a cake of choice for so many people. It’s such a simple and failsafe recipe, perfect for celebrations and everyday enjoyment.

I love my Elk top & Obus pants
