Rockin’ Women Wednesdays – Dani Valent

Dani Valent is an award-winning food writer, screenwriter and cookbook author. In 2007 she heard the word ‘Thermomix’ and had to find out more. All of a sudden she was on a ‘speed 10’ ride through Thermoland, bringing her special brand of empowered, tasty fun to Thermomix users around the world.

Her feature articles and restaurant reviews appear regularly in The Age. She fell in love with the Thermomix kitchen machine more than seven years ago while researching a story about chefs and the gadget they wanted next. This word ‘Thermomix’ kept coming up. Dani’s hunger for great Thermomix recipes led her to write two cookbooks, featuring the Thermomix recipes of chefs and cooks around the world, as well as her own family favourites. Sign up to her newsletter at to be the first to hear what she’s up to next.

Join Dani, Sam & Sim for a masterclass in Melbourne on Sunday 12th April – details below.
