Being new to air fryers, I saw Genius on the cover and stupidly thought it was specifically for our brand new Acti Fryer Genius - it is not, even though it also says on the cover it is for all fryers. It is a lovely cookbook and has some nice recipes but our frier has a paddle. I have to try and adapt each recipe and I don’t have a clue what I am doing. Very dissappointed.
Just received this today and have read it cover-to-cover. This is a beautifully illustrated cookbook with valuable tips and mouth-watering recipes! I am a newbie with an Air Fryer and am eager to follow her recipes! I highly recommend it!!
Recently I purchased the Cuisinart countertop toaster / air fryer / convection oven. Since I am very familiar with Meredith Laurence I was intrigued by the fact that this book is titled for "Every" air fryer. I had previously purchased the Philips XL air fryer and returned it due to a variety of reasons. Primarily the fact that those type air fryers at the time were difficult to find a recipe book for them.
First, I will tell you that every recipe in this book has a photograph of the dish. To me that is extremely important. Secondly, the book is divided into nine food categories. This makes it very easy to go directly to what you're looking for. Thirdly, the book has several sections that deal with "how to" which I think would be useful to anyone cooking not just exclusively for an air fryer. Fourth at the beginning of the book are several pages that deal with converting recipes, dealing with hazards with what you prepare, newbie tips, and numerous air fryer tips. I have gone through the entire book and the only thing I would point out that really isn't a negative but might be of interest to those that are intolerant to dairy. There are over 20 of these recipes that include cheese, yogurt, Mayo, and cream cheese. Since I am one of those people intolerant to dairy, after reading the recipes I think several of those recipes you can most likely leave out the dairy. The only thing I would say I was hoping was in the book that is not in the book is a chart of cooking times and temperatures for various Meats, veggies, and desserts. I am extremely pleased with this cookbook and have found it to be thorough covering a variety of foods. I believe that I will use it regularly with my new air fryer oven
I'm a big fan of the Blue Jean Chef, I watch her on QVC all the time, she is wonderful and her foods are delicious. I bought her "Air Fry Everything!" book right after I got my amazing Elite Platinum 3.2 Quart Electric Digital Air Fryer Cooker and her book guided me along in my early Air Fryer days.
After enjoying the recipes in the "Everything!" book many times, I was thrilled that Meredith was coming out with this new book, "Air Fry Genius". More than a hundred new recipes to excite my taste buds.
The back of the new book has a very helpful cooking chart that gives a wonderful guide in preparation of veggies, meats and frozen foods.
The book has a great layout for each recipe. A good picture of each tasty treat accompanies all the recipes and the directions are very simple and direct. This book helps me create wonderful food in spite of my limited skills. Meredith knows how to talk to a cook with my limitations and it's Not scary, and it's really FUN.
My first new recipe was the Parmesan Asparagus, a favorite veggie around my house, and it's soooo fast and easy! It will be made often, it took 5 minutes!!! Yesterday I prepared the Rib Eye Cheese Steaks with Fried Onions....Amazing! With seven ingredients and five quick and easy preparations it takes about 20 minutes till I was ready to eat and I will want this again and again. Fresh cooked meat and fried onions with melted cheese...What's not to enjoy?!?! and it is so easy too.
The Elite Platinum Air Fryer is the most used appliance in the house and I will always have one in the future. I will also always have the Blue Jean Chef's cook books in my collection. Besides the recipes, she teaches how to get the most out of my Air Fryer, using it in ways that will surprise you and make your life better.
She will give you knowledge and knowledge is power....and delicious too!
