Globally inspired recipes, from fritters and fritattas to shakshuka and falafel, plus Teriyaki Glazed Ribs, Sicilian Stuffed Peppers, General Tso’s Chicken, and lots more

Homey and robust fried foods, like spring rolls, buttermilk fried chicken, and country-fried steak
Breakfasts and brunches
Appetizers, snacks, and party food

Desserts, such as Apple Turnovers, Caramelized Peach Shortcakes, Churros with Chocolate Dipping Sauce, and Lemon-Lavender Doughnuts
All the recipes in The Epic Air Fryer Cookbook use easy-to-find ingredients and feature short prep times and fast cook times. For air-frying rookies, there are ample tips for getting started with your air fryer and for using and maintaining it—no matter what make or model you own—as you enjoy cooking with it in the years to come.

Cooking with your air fryer has never been more healthy, more fun...or more epic!

Epic Air Fryer Cookbook by Emily Paster is a Harvard Common Press publication.

Fresh, Fun, and Easy!

I got an air fryer for Christmas last year and now I wonder what how I ever survived without one. I’m always looking for new and fresh recipes to try out and am especially interested in ones that are unique to air fryers specifically.
This cookbook, as promised, has one hundred recipes, divided into the usual sections one expects to find in a typical cookbook.

Included are:

Breakfast foods
Party Foods and Appetizers
Vegetarian meals
Main Courses with Poultry, meat and seafood
Side dishes

As you will discover, the air fryer is not just for traditional ‘frying’ but also works like a convection oven. I have tried one or two air fryer cookbooks right after I first got my fryer, which got me off to a good start, while I acclimated myself to the device.

This book is a nice addition to my growing collection! I’d never even thought about trying some of these recipes in the air fryer!! It really is very versatile and a much healthier choice. In fact, we had given up on some favorite foods because of the health risk, but now we can enjoy them again in moderation.

One recipe included was for fried green tomatoes- which was timely for me. We just experienced our first freeze of the season and I still had tomatoes on the vine in my garden- all still very green. So, I had already planned on looking up a recipe for FGT- and now I have one I can use in my air fryer- guilt free!

The other recipe I tried was the Baja Fish Tacos mainly because I had many of the ingredients on hand and was in the mood for fish.

Overall, this is an exceptional air fryer cookbook. If you have an air fryer or are thinking about buying one for yourself or someone else, be sure to pick up this cookbook to go along with it. There are color photos included, and most recipes are very easy to make and do not require hard to find spices or ingredients.

Bon appetite!
