Healthy Keto Air Fryer Cookbook: 100 Delicious Low-Carb and Fat-Burning Recipes


Healthy Keto Air Fryer Cookbook is a new tutorial and recipe collection for  keto cooks by Aaron Day. Due out 8th Dec 2020 from Penguin Random House on their DK Alpha imprint, it's 160 pages (print version) and will be available in paperback and ebook formats. 

The introduction covers the basics of cooking with the air-fryer and essential accessories as well as an intro to the keto lifestyle/diet, including a basic primer on ketosis, macronutrients, tips, ingredients, tools, supplies, how-to. The following chapters include the recipes arranged roughly by category: breakfast, mains, sides, snacks, and desserts.

Ingredient measurements are supplied in American standard measurements with metric equivalents in parentheses (yay!).  The nutritional information:  fat, carbs, protein, fiber content, etc are listed for the recipes as well as serving sizes.  Extra tips or recipe alternatives are listed in the recipes. The recipes themselves are fairly straightforward and are made for the most part with easily sourced ingredients (not all though, sweeteners for example, will likely need to be sourced from specialists). The sweeteners used often include erythritol, so people who have IBS or other inflammatory issues might need to proceed with caution.

The photography is not abundant; about 2/3rds of the recipes are not illustrated, but the photographs which are included are clear and well done.  I wish there had been more photographs and serving suggestions, but I do understand that extra photography increases the price of book projects very quickly and I didn't find the lack crippling.

This is a large collection of recipes and even allowing for the fact that some of them are very similar to others in the same category, this will keep keto-cooks going for ages. Many of these can also easily be adapted to non-keto cooking. 

Four stars.
