Air Fryers are all the rage, and everyone, it seems, is trying to reduce their fat intake while still enjoying fried foods. It’s important to learn to use the air fryer correctly to get the most benefits, so most of us need a good cookbook that teaches us the basics, and gives us recipes for foods that we actually want to prepare and eat. One such cookbook, (that is excellent by-the-way), is Emily Paster’s Epic Air Fryer Cookbook: 100 Inspired Recipes That Take Air-Frying in Deliciously Exciting New Directions.

This cookbook has the obligatory introductory information - how to use your air fryer – choosing the right air fryer for you - and how to care for your air fryer; this information is enough, but not so much that it takes hours to get through.

The best part about this excellent cookbook is, of course, the recipes. Included are recipes for just about everything anyone would want, including vegetarian dishes, breakfasts, meats, seafood, and poultry, vegetables, and desserts. The recipes have influences from every part of the world – Israel, Mexico, Japan, China, Italy, UK, Peru, France, India and several regions of America, and the photographs (not enough of them which is the only negative about this book) are beautiful.

The recipes are well-written and easy-to-follow; they mostly call for ingredients that are readily available at mainstream grocery stores. Most have minimal ingredients, and take a minimal amount of time to prepare. New favorites (the queue is still very long since most of the recipes are very appealing) include Korean Fried Cauliflower, Sonoran Hot Dogs, Israeli Chicken Schnitzel, Natchitoches Meat Pies, and Chouquettes (French Pastry Puffs).

If you’re new to air frying, or just want some new good ideas, this is the cookbook for you.
