Merry Christmas! Recipes for 7 Desserts, from Bosch Contest
Some of you have asked regarding recipes from the Bosch Cook-off Competition. I've managed to get hold of the recipes and permission to publish them, so here they are! Merry Christmas!
But first, let me show you the machine that I believe the winner Fahizal used to make his winning chocolate raisin tart (first photo).
It is a MUM 5 all-in-one kitchen machine. It's got many functions in one compact body - a mixer, blender, shredder and citrus juicer. This is the shredder attached to the main arm. The output goes conveniently into the sturdy stainless steel mixing bowl.
The shredder comes with three different blades - for slicing, coarse grating, and fine grating (cheeses, chocolate, fruits, nuts, vegetables, etc). These are stored conveniently in a pouch that also contains the mixer attachments like the whisk, dough hook and mixer. The whole black pouch can be stored neatly in the mixing bowl when not in use. There's the bright orange citrus juicer too - great when you need lots of juice for a family brunch or party.
Fold the arm down, and you can attach a blender for blending drinks, pureeing fruit and vegetables, making mayonnaise, and even crushing ice cubes.
There are more options you can attach, including meat grinders and different slicing blades (for French fries, rosti, potato dumplings, etc).
As you can see, it's really versatile. I can't wait to make full use of mine when I finally get my oven! Yes, and when my tastebuds resume duty too. I'm sick of being sick, and eating porridge! I miss my homebaked stuff!
But on to the recipes!
