Air Fryers are very trendy right now, and since there can be a learning curve when learning to use them, The Essential Air Fryer Cookbook for Beginners: Easy, Foolproof Recipes for Your Air Fryer is an excellent, timely cookbook for anyone who wants to learn the basics and also prepare quick, easy dishes in the air fryer. Laurie Fleming, the author, is a recipe developer and food blogger, and certainly knows her stuff.

This excellent cookbook has something for everyone. There are recipes for breads, desserts, vegetables, side dishes, and poultry, as well as meat and seafood recipes. Favorites include: Loaded Potato Skins, Blueberry Pancake Poppers (addicting), Air Fryer Cajun Shrimp, and Perfect Air Fryer Pork Chops (and they are perfect!). Others in the queue for testing include Easy Chocolate Frosted Donuts, Old Fashioned Air Fryer Meatloaf, Simple Roasted Garlic Asparagus, and Air Fryer Southern Fried Chicken.

There are also excellent charts for cooking fast/frozen/convenience foods, as well as fresh foods. These are very helpful. The first chapter is Air Fryer 101- and covers most of the methods and answers questions new air fryer users need to know; even experienced air fryer users can learn from this cookbook.

While there are a few beautiful photographs, there aren’t nearly enough. The recipes are compelling, and readers want to see what their finished products will look like. Unfortunately, this is possible. However, the recipes are mouthwatering, and even though most aren’t pictured, cooks will be tempted to make them anyway. This is an excellent cookbook that will be a nice addition to a good cookbook collection.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
