Very disappointed with the recipes being written for the American market and not having very many basic recipes that would be used in UK. The cooking times chart at the end of the book could be useful if you know the British equivelant of the USA ingredients. If you are looking for basic recipes look for a different book!
Very old fashioned 70s style American recipes, measures all in ounces and ingredients require searching for uk equivalents. Not really suitable for uk ninja foodie owners unless you want to make things like peach cobbler or sunday pot roast with biscuits!
I am really sorry that I purchased this particular cookbook. This cookbook does not give the basics of broiling a simple hamburger or steak or French fries. I am sort of a meat and potatoes guy in these recipes, for the most part, are not my style. For one thing, she adds a lot of not spices that I don’t care for. Again, what I would like to know is how to cook a basic chunk of meat. How do I cook basic shrimp? How do I cook fresh vs frozen shrimp? I can always add my own sauces. In almost every recipe, she goes too far and not far enough. There are no definitions for baking vs roasting vs taking vs crisping. The Ninja Foodi is supposed to thaw and cook various foods. But she doesn’t mention that. She just goes into her specific recipes that I could care less about. I just want to know the basics of cooking a steak or a hamburger or shrimp or salmon or a potato. I don’t need all this fancy crap. My foodi is due to arrive today. I am hoping that the book that comes with it has much more usable information then this particular cookbook. There are so many things that this author does not touch on for the basic user like myself. I went through 200 pages of the book and found only 9 recipes that I could use part of. I, myself, would not recommend this book to anybody that just wants the basics.
I was excited to get a couple of cook books to help me along with my new ninja foodi. However this book, as well as the other one purchased, just fell flat. Out of hundreds of recipes, I only found 6 I would actually make or desire to cook. SIX! My suggestion to those looking for a cook book for your ninja, is to go on YouTube. Seriously. Go on there and type in Ninja Foodi recipes. Not only will you get the recipe, you will get a full visual demonstration and learn basic know-how about your machine. I’m a visual learner. I want to see what I am making as well. A picture less, gourmet recipe book is not up my alley. If it’s up yours, then go ahead and purchase this. Otherwise, make a simple video playlist of recipes through your YouTube account. It’s simply easier and so much better.
