101 delicious, tried-and-tested recipes to help you get the most out of your air-fryer. An air-fryer is the latest kitchen must-have and this is the recipe book to go with it!

The result is food that’s crisp and delicious in no time and, most notably, it makes the perfect alternative to a deep-fat fryer for anyone adopting a healthier lifestyle. Nutritionist Jenny Tschiesche has developed 101 tried-and-tested recipes to help you get the very best out of your air-fryer. Her appealing ideas take their inspiration from all styles of world cuisine, and there is something here to suit every occasion, from snacks and sides to complete meals and sweet treats.

This new book offers nutritious and budget-friendly recipes aiming to reduce the amount of energy by using the air fryer instead of the oven and/or grill. In tests carried out by Which? using an air fryer costs from a third to half less than using an electric oven. The popularity of air fryers looks set to last, and why not with its amazing list of benefits not just to the household budget, but for the time-poor cook too. Using an air fryer drastically cuts down on cooking times, making these recipes fantastic for anyone cooking in a hurry too.  The recipes in this book cater for a wide range of tastes and needs, exploring ideas for using tins, jars and cartons, cooking from frozen, using up leftovers, using cheaper cuts of meat, grains and pulses, vegetable-based dishes and much more. Jenny Tschieshe’s first book taught us that an air fryer doesn’t just have to be for beige food. Now it’s time to take things a step further by focusing on making the most of your air fryer in terms of keeping your energy and food costs as low as possible.  Product Information:  • ISBN:  9781788795524 • Author: Jenny Tschiesche • Publisher:  Ryland Peters & Small • Format:  Hardback • Pages:  144 • Dimensions: 19.05 x 1.78 x 23.5 cm

Try one of the 50 recipes perfected by some of the world's best bartenders, and discover the fascinating story of the ingredient behind every well-made drink.   A classic cocktail relies on relatively few ingredients so every element has to be just right. Bitters, those little bottles you will find in any bar worth its salt, are the unsung heroes of the cocktail world. Where would the Manhattan be without orange bitters? Where would the Old-fashioned be without angostura bitters?  Former bartender, cocktail historian and founder of the House of Botanicals bitters and spirits company, Adam Elan-Elmegirab presents the results of a decade of research into how bitters came to be an integral part of a perfected cocktail, guiding you from the early days of snake-oil salesmen through to the birth of the cocktail, Prohibition and the renaissance of this little-known ingredient as an essential part of the contemporary bar scene. Adam outlines the key botanicals and explains the science of flavour, describing how each characteristic can be deployed for maximum impact, and summarizes the key techniques for making great cocktails.  Most importantly, he provides 50 recipes created by him and some of the world’s leading bartenders. These exceptional drinks showcase the different characteristics of bitters and how they can refine a cocktail in unique ways.
