Maldon’s Cookbook Club and Air Fryers

With the winter months finally coming to an end, what better way to ‘warm’ us up than with a new book filled with hearty recipes! Carrying on with series with Penguin Books, we review Nathan Anthony’s second cookbook… Bored of Lunch: The Healthy Air Fryer.

The hugely popular Nathan Anthony has striked again in carrying on the Bored of Lunch series. The Belfast author is a big advocate when it comes to eating healthy and how to become more cost efficient when cooking – which is why he released his first cookbook on the Healthy Slow Cooker, to explore these factors and showcase to readers just how easy it is to create great-tasting recipes from the use of a single kitchen appliance! You can read our review on the Healthy Slow Cooker book here, where we had the chance of sitting down with Nathan and discussing the inspiration behind the book and the energy efficiency of the appliance.

From the tremendous success of his first book, it makes sense that Nathan now wants to channel his second love, the humble air fryer! From reading our blog post on the benefits of air fryer cooking, you will understand that the appliance is becoming the go-to kitchen gadget for making fuss-free meals that equally taste delicious. Being a lower-energy alternative in your household, air fryers can help you dish up your favourite recipes at a lower cost. With using less oil in your cooking as well, this cookbook is great for readers who are wanting to keep a track on the calories they are consuming.

Whether you are new to using an air fryer or already a pro, this book is perfect in making delectable recipes packed FULL of flavour. The book’s chapters include: Starters and Snacks, Speedy Lunches (perfect for when you are on the go!), Fakeaways, Weekday Dinners and Sweet Treats! With every recipe follows a beautiful picture, where fan-favourite recipes of Honey Chilli Beef, Katsu Curry, and Fish Tacos can be enjoyed!

Sweet Potato & Chorizo Hash

While this is a speedy lunch, this recipe is also perfect for breakfast or brunch! It’s really versatile and you can make it more substantial by adding a poached egg or two on top! Add a slice of toasted sourdough bread to really mop up those mouth-watering juices.
