Secret Weapon You Need To Nail Your Christmas Lunch This Year

This article is sponsored by Thermomix.

Whether your family has traditions that you do every year for Christmas lunch or you’re all about changing it up and trying new things, there’s something so special about sitting down to a delicious meal surrounded by all your nearest and dearest. It’s a time for everyone to put aside their busy lives, to connect and reflect on the year gone by and make new memories together. But whilst we all want to make sure our friends and family have a day to remember and that they leave with full hearts – and even fuller bellies - the thought of hosting Christmas lunch can instil fear in even the most seasoned of chefs. But it doesn’t have to.

This year when you’re planning for Christmas you need think about working smarter and not harder, so that you can relax and enjoy yourself too. So it’s time to go high-tech and take your cooking (and planning) to the next level with a little secret weapon. Enter the Thermomix.

Think of the new Thermomix TM6 as your very own sous chef, replacing over 12 of your kitchen appliances in one sleek looking and compact unit (great for those with small kitchens where storage is an issue!) but don’t let its size fool you, this thing packs serious power. The TM6 has 20 different functions and 10 modes (with new ones continually being added via software updates) so you can chop, beat, blend, whip, weigh, mill, knead, mince and more at the touch of a button.

As well as this, the TM6 has built in wi-fi and while it might not stream Michael Buble’s Christmas album it will give you access to over 50,000 recipes via the Cookidoo database. And the beauty of it is it will then guide you through the recipes step-by-step with on-screen instructions and temperature, weighing and timings are set automatically by the Thermomix so you just need to turn the dial – which can be done with one hand whilst sipping on a glass of bubbles in the other! Genius.

The TM6 is that extra set of hands you always wish you have when you’re cooking, helping you make delicious and not to mention healthy food from scratch – no matter what your skill level in the kitchen may be. Think homemade stocks and sauces that you can prep in advance and thus taking away the need for store bought options that are packed full of preservatives and nasty additives.

And of course no Christmas lunch is complete without a roast – whether you choose the traditional turkey or opt for pork, beef or even a good old Aussie lamb roast, cooking it just right can be tricky but with the new MEATER+ product available in Thermomix’s e-shop, the Mix Shop, you can get perfect results every time.

The MEATER+ is the first wireless smart meat thermometer that connects to your phone and sends you an alert when the meat is ready – so you can spend more time out of the kitchen and enjoying the day with your loved ones knowing you won’t overcook the meat. The Thermomix Barbecue cookbook also comes packed full of delicious recipes.

This Christmas take the hard work out of cooking and spend more time enjoying the day with your nearest dearest.
