In My Kitchen – Tefal Cuisine Companion

It’s not everyday one gets to go to the Sydney Seafood School, cook a risotto without having to stir anything at all and (the best part!) bring home a Tefal Cuisine Companion. I have never ever dreamt of having an all-in-one Wonder Machine, but now that I have one – a bit like my Monsieur – I just don’t know how I’ve lived without having it. It’s this great.

Ce n’est pas tous les jours qu’on peut se rendre à la Sydney seafood school, cuire un risotto sans avoir à touiller quoique ce soit et ramener chez soi, un Tefal Cuisine Companion. Je n’ai jamais rêvé d’une machine qui fait tout, mais maintenant que j’en ai une – un peu comme mon époux – je ne sais pas comment j’ai fait pour vivre sans. C’est plus qu’époustouflant!

Thanks to Tefal Australia, I was invited to discover the new Tefal Cuisine Companion, a wonder machine that does everything for you. We sampled a guacamole made with the cuisine companion, and after a short introduction to the wonder machine (it’s quite intuitive) went to the room next door and each, had the opportunity to do our own risotto or cheesecake (I had the risotto recipe, my kitchen buddy Wincee had the cheesecake).

Grâce à Tefal Australia, j’ai été invitée en avant première, à découvrir le tout nouveau Cuisine Companion de Tefal, une merveille de technologie qui fait tout pour vous. Nous avons goûté à un guacamole tout juste fait, et après une brève introduction (la machine est très intuitive et facile à appréhender) nous nous sommes dirigés vers les plans de travail pour faire notre propre risotto ou cheesecake (selon la recette devant nos yeux!)

The cuisine companion is truly revolutionary: No more standing next to the kitchen counter stirring your risotto, My cuisine companion does it all! No more poaching my whipped up egg whites to make îles flottantes (floating islands), the cuisine companion whips them up, cooks them, and all you have to do is to scoop the “islands” out. I was skeptic that this would work for floating island to be honest, but the result is just breathtakingly amazing. If you’re only a household of two (like Monsieur and I) and you’re hesitating between following the original recipe for 4 to 6 or just cutting the ingredients by half… Well go with the recipe as it is, I promise the floating islands will disappear in no time. The original recipe calls for 6 eggs, 500ml of milk and 180g of sugar and though we thought this was a lot, the floating islands were gone in less than 24 hours.

Le cuisine companion est tout simplement révolutionnaire (si si!) Plus besoin de rester plantée comme un piquet à côté du feu pour touiller son risotto, Le Cuisine Companion s’occupe de tout. Plus besoin de pocher les blancs en neige pour faire des îles flottantes, le Cuisine Companion, monte les oeufs en neige et les cuit dans le bol… Il ne reste plus qu’à les égoutter. (Au passage, si vous n’êtes que deux et songez à diviser les ingrédients, abstenez vous, nos îles flottantes faites maison avec 6 oeufs, 1/2 L de lait et 180g de sucre ont duré moins de 24 h!)

Why you need it: It does everything. from sauces to soups, it slow-cooks, steams, and you can even make your own pastries and desserts.
What I’ve done so far: I’ve had it just over 10 days and I’ve already made two risottos, floating islands, a lamb shank rogan josh curry and an orange cake*.
What I haven’t done yet: hugged it and given it a name (I’ve hugged the box though).
What I’m planning to do: Choux pastry. No more attempts at drying the choux dough whilst I’m incorporating the eggs, I can’t wait to make éclairs!

Voilà pourquoi cette machine est un must-have: il fait les sauces, les soupes, mijote et cuit à petit feu, fait cuit vapeur, dessert et pâtisseries.

Ce que nous avons fait: Cela ne fait que 10 jours que nous avons le Cuisine Companion et nous avons déjà fait 2 risottos, des îles flottantes, un curry d’agneau rogan josh, et 1 gateau à l’orange.

Ce que je n’ai pas encore fait: lui donner un nom

Ce que nous avons prévu de faire: des Choux! Plus besoin de me fatiguer les bras à sécher la pâte à choux après chaque oeuf!

The recipes are quite versatile, so adding 150gm of mushrooms and dividing the recipe ingredients by two made a hearty mushroom risotto that was just perfect for two! All you have to do is measure the ingredients (there’s a kitchen scale that comes with the Tefal Cuisine Companion), and pour them in. Easy peasy!

Les recettes sont très adaptables. Pour le risotto, nous avons divisé les quantités par deux, ajouté 150gm de champignons et c’était juste parfait au niveau des proportions. Tout ce que vous avez à faire, c’est de mesurer les ingrédients et de les mettre dans le bol qui mixe le tout! Facile!

    1. Hi Maureen!
      It’s great and I figured the recipes – though australianized – are in fact mostly the same as in the French cookbook, so it feels like I’m eating food from home (except when I made the lamb rogan josh!).

  1. I want one !!!! sent your post to N. so that he knows what to by me with his bonus ah ah …as i spent mine on Sweety Betty sky jackets for my sis and I :-)
