We are:

Joy who has retired from full time employment as a university academic (computing). She conducts a small computer support business where the main clientele are elderly people. Joy has always had an intense interest in cooking and food. She is engaged in the Cohen lifestyle program and for 9 months in 2008 during the weight loss phase of the program all the food that she ate was additive free. This provided a great match with the Thermomix philosophy.

Barrie is an avid consumer of food that has been prepared in the Thermomix. He says that since the arrival of the Thermomix at their house he has excellent taste.
