Using the Thermomix I made a soup and butter for entree and caramlised onion for one of the sides. The poached turkey breast and cauliflower dish both Donna Hay recipes were pulled off without a hitch and after two disatorous attempts at panna cotta I finally got it right with a layered dessert consisting of mousse, sponge fingers and berry coulis.
