About Wanderlust
For over 20 years, I’ve been sharing my passion for all things culinary, travel and Thermomix through classes, tours and books and Wanderlust is a celebration of all of these.
Wanderlust will have you travelling far and wide via taste and smell. I hope all food lovers (both Thermomixers and Conventional Cooks) will use the over 70 step-by-step recipes from delicious destinations including Italy, Sri Lanka, Greece, Thailand, Mexico and beyond to transport family and friends to all our favourite places around the globe.

Buon appetito e buon viaggio!

Other Cookbooks from Nico

Food for Friends Cookbook

“Delicious Journeys” and “Food for Friends” are collections of class favourite recipes taught at our Cooking Passions Cooking School, with each recipe beautifully photographed with easy to follow step-by-step instructions.
For Thermomix Users –  Thermomix Methods are included on the same page as the Conventional Method, allowing you the opportunity to see how those recipes have been converted for preparing in either your TM31 / TM5 / TM6 models.

What people are saying:

Hi Nico, Just wanted to say that I have tried a couple of the recipes from the 2 cookbooks since receiving them a few weeks ago – Saffron Risotto. Teriyaki Tuna Kebabs, Lemongrass Chili Chicken, Cauliflower and Pomegranate Salad, Mediterranean Spice Rub Pork, Vietnamese Beef just to name a few – and have not had one bad result or response from the family! Regardless of whether the recipes are difficult or time consuming they are very easy to follow, and end up looking like the pictures in the cookbooks! I am really happy with them, and not just for the Thermomix options either. I have a number of cookbooks from your contemporaries and believe me, the number of disasters from these outweigh the success stories by a rather large margin. With the Cauliflower and Pomegranate Salad I ended up baking some pumpkin and sweet potato with it and turned it into a warm salad and had it with the Mediterranean Pork and it was great! I was really sorry to have missed out on your session here in Canberra (at Jerrabomberra) last month but by the time I had checked with a friend to see if she wanted to go it was all booked out! Hopefully you will make the trip out east again soon! Warmest regards…Anne


Thank you for the fast service in sending the books out.  Every recipe I have tried so far has been very tasty and easy to make.  I purchased the extra copy to give to a friend…Gail


Hi Nico, Had to rebuy the first book as one of said Thermomix friends stole my cookbook and ran away to Canberra with it (it was signed and everything ha ha) Cheeky!! Looking to come along to more classes this year also. Keep up the good work! Kind regards…Claire


Hi Belinda, I just wanted to let you know that my books arrived today. I was a little hesitant about buying a book online that I hadn’t seen before but WOW!! I’m already in love and the recipes included are exactly the type of thing I was hoping for. Maybe I won’t give them away as gifts after all! Thanks heaps…Jacinta


This “Delicious Journeys – 2nd Edition” includes even more Thermomix Method recipes than the first edition and Thermomix instructions for the TM6, TM5 and TM31 models.

About the Collection

Cooking Passions – Food for Friends is the cooking school’s first cookbook, released originally in 2007 and now in its 3rd reprint. Food for Friends is  a cookbook of inspiring and sociable food designed to deliver maximum flavour with a minimum of fuss.

Cooking Passions – Delicious Journeys is our second cookbook. With step-by-step class recipes from the cooking school’s latest six years, Delicious Journeys takes you on a world tour of some favourite make-at-home dishes from around the globe, from French Bistro to Italian pastas to spicy curries through to decadent desserts. As with Food for Friends, Delicious Journeys is one of the world’s first conventional cookbooks to include Thermomix Methods for many of the recipes, with the Thermomix Methods included on the same page as each of the recipes, for ease of replicating the recipes.

More of what people are saying:


Hi Nico, I am a new consultant for Thermomix and everyone raves about your cookbooks and you. I fell in love with your pannacotta in your Food for Friends Cookbook, as I have been in Italy for a few weeks and found my perfect favorite and simple dessert, however I have never been able to perfect it. A lovely lady allowed me to borrow your cookbooks for a week and I am now ordering my own. Looking at booking into one of your cooking classes as I do love to learn more about cooking and flavours…Kayleen

Nico, Love these books which I have just received. Am ordering 2 more sets for my daughters. Thanks for the great recipes…Eunice

Hi Nico, This is the best book ever! Everything I had tried has worked out and tastes amazing. My two daughters are also putting it to the test and we share what we think about the recipes. Thanks so much for putting this together. Many thanks…Sandy 

Hi Nico, I just wanted to congratulate you on your Delicious Journeys cookbook. I have only just discovered the Thermomix and whilst I love the machine, I found a lot of their recipes to be fairly balnd and uninspiring. Your style of cooking however is just what our family enjoys. The Gnocchi was sublime and the Pumpkin Ravioli superb, and had it not been for your Saffron Risotto I would have given up Risotto in the Thermomix altogether. I can’t wait to explore and savour the remaining wonderful selection of dishes in this book and will be lining up to buy your other releases. Thanks again…Alison 

Hi, We are loving your “Delicious Journeys”. It is a beautifully photographed book, bravo to you guys!…Cheers, Antonia 

Hi Nico & Belinda, Thank you for the book, it is awesome! We love everything I have made from it so far. It is so good I would like to buy two more copies as presents. Thank you…Kristy

Hi Nico, I purchased your cookbook of “Delicious Journeys” from Kailis Brothers on Friday and I am so pleased I did. A great selection of recipes, good instructions and as a newish Thermomix owner so inspiring. I can’t wait to try so many recipes. Thank you so much for putting together such a great book. Based on how good I found this book, I look forward to receiving your reprint of “Food For Friends”.Thanks…Sue

Hi Nico, Since we received your books we have done a couple of recipes. Just yesterday we had Mee Goreng again… oh so yum yum. Bourbon Ribs are a winner with our family and friends. I love my Mojito! Wish I could attend your cooking classes. All the best from freezing cold CanberraIlona

Hi Nico, Love your cookbooks – just received the Delicious Journeys – favourite recipes are the pumpkin, feta and zucchini tart and the scallops with chilli jam! Regards…Carol

Hi Nico, Looking forward to your new book. I have used a few of your recipes using Thermomix, such as the white chocolate pannacota which is such a beautiful and classy dessert. Regards…Joanna

Hi Nico, I am thoroughly enjoying cooking and most definitely eating all the delicious dishes from your book, both savoury and sweet! Many thanks! Have a great day!…Sue

Many Thanks Nico & Belinda for hosting a great evening of “Gourmet Vegetarian Passion”, absolutely delicious …… even the “Passionfruit Creme Brulee” – as I don’t usually partake in desserts!! Wow, already enjoying the cooking passions – Delicious Journeys Cookbook as much as the previous one cooking passions – Food For Friends …… both are really fabulous…Sue

Hello Nico, Thanks again, we are loving your new book. It has gone mad amongst our customers and we are very happy to promote it out to our customers…Anne

Hi Nico, I am sure everyone will love the recipes as much as I have enjoyed making and eating them!…Sue

Nico, I missed your demonstration while I was on holidays (poorly timed in hindsight) and thanks to my generous friend who loaned me her copy – I spoiled my friends with your Argentinian Lamb with Chimichurri last night, to great accolade. I have been a Thermomix user for 6 years, and the combination of Thermomix instructions and divine recipes – fantastic! Thank you…Michelle

Hi Nico, After your demonstration at the Thermomix “Big Morning Tea, I was inspired to try some of your techniques for cooking rice from your Thermomix Tips in Delicious Journeys. It was the best rice I’ve made so far. Thanks, so much for the tips. Many thanks, Jackie

Hi Nico, I would love to be put on your list of people to contact when your Delicious Journeys becomes available! I have been loving cooking out of “Food for Friends” since coming to the Gourmet BBQ class earlier this month. We had such a great night and have been telling everyone that they need to go along to one of your classes!…Kate

Hi Nico, Just want to tell you how much I enjoyed the Indian cooking night, also your cook books are great, I’ve made the curry sauce and the sate chicken from the book was amazing. I’ve also thrown the rice cooker out…Can’t wait to cook some more of your creations. Much appreciated…Lee
