video: Thermomix Risotto with Don Genova
Cook along with a Canadian Thermomix representative Don Genova as he demonstrates how to make a perfect Asparagus Thermomix Risotto with the world’s best-loved kitchen machine.
Even though Don Genova is one of few Canadians who cooks with Thermomix, and I too live in Canada… we’ve never met, spoken, or communicated. (I know, hard to believe isn’t it?!) But this fact doesn’t stop me and several thousand more Canadians from feeling we know the man — just a little bit. Genova’s engaging food-related radio vignettes and many other food journalism appearances have made him one of the country’s best-loved public foodies. Who better then, to introduce Thermomix to Canadians on YouTube?

Cook-along with Don!
Genova’s video recipe is everything a video recipe should be. It’s an easy recipe to follow, plus a great introduction to Thermomix. Everything about this video works. (Well, almost… At time of this writing, there’s an inaccurate blog reference in the final few frames.) Genova is also an experienced cooking teacher and here now too before the camera he masterfully explains the functions of the Thermomix to those who are not yet familiar. His style is casual, friendly, and comfortable. Professional production means we hear, see and understand everything. This excellent little video does several things at once: introduces Thermomix, explains the machine’s unique functions, and presents a classic Thermomix Risotto — all in about six minutes.
- I do! Don is a natural for presenting Thermomix on video. More from this man would be a good thing for Thermomix in Canada.
