Cookery - Air Frying

An air fryer is a countertop convection oven that, unlike traditional deep fryers, does not submerge the food in oil while simulating the frying process. Browning processes, such as the Maillard reaction, are triggered when hot air is blown around at a high rate of speed by a fan. This results in the formation of a crisp layer. Many fantastic, healthy meals can be made with an air fryer, so join our face to face course in Gloucester to find new recipes whilst cooking with a group of other foodies and being guided by one of our enthusiastic tutors!
