Have tried quite a few of your air fryer recipes with success. I have the Ninja Dual Basket 400UK effort. It’s still a learning curve and I’ve taken the odd failure on board. My best feat hitherto is a cheese soufflé - fiddly to prepare but, once you have the ingredients ready, a breeze. Afraid my kale and broccoli attempts haven’t met with much approbation from my otherwise polite family.

Thank you for all the recipes. I have a Ninja 14 plus a Morphie Richards soup maker. Both bought on your recommendation. In the Soup maker this week I made curried parsnip soup which we all enjoyed and so will make again. I make bread every week or sometime twice. For Christmas I made a panettone and used my Ninja to prove it both times. It was really a beautiful bread/cake and it went in a flash. (It was cooked in my combination cooker) I love both of my new gadgets so much that my Aga this year has not been switched on. We were a way for Christmas day so no turkey to cook, but I am sure I could have managed it if I had to cook one. Thanks again Liana

PS for got to say I made the chocolate fudge in my Ninja which was brilliant and disappeared very quickly.
