Overview

Popcorn is the great American munchie, but too many of us know it simply as a predictable staple of the multiplex or the microwave. Popcorn serves up over 60 tantalizing recipes — both savory and sweet — to ensure that popcorn is never boring again. For tart and piquant tastes, there are Lemon-Pepper Popcorn or Classic Barbecue, or even Gorgonzola and Green Onion for something completely different. On the sweet side, the offerings include Hawaiian Luau Bars (featuring coconut and white chocolate), Popcorn S’mores, and Bananas Foster Mix (the popcorn version). Author Patrick Evans-Hylton also shows how to use popcorn as an ingredient in main course dishes such as Popcorn Shrimp and Poppin' Codfish, which use popcorn as a coating ingredient. Seafood fans can enjoy the unique variation on Chesapeake Bay Crab Cakes. Gorgeous photographs throughout show the end result of the scrumptuous recipe. Popcorn's got a brand new bag!

Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks and I thought I was being adventurous by occasionally sprinking chili powder on mine. Then I read this book that is devoted entirely to adding all kinds of flavors and gourmet touches to this otherwise simple food. Popcorn nirvana does exist! This cookbook has what one might expect with some recipes for spice blends to sprinkle over popcorn, but it goes beyond that to creating dishes with popped corn as an ingredient such as S'More Popcorn Bars, Hawaiian Luau Bars, Death by Chocolate Popcorn Balls, and even main course dishes such as Mac and Cheese Gratin. Some recipes are sweet, others are savory, and some have an ethnic flavor (Mexican, Asian, Indian, etc.). I started out with a simple recipe that I enjoyed called Parm and Pepper Popcorn, which included a blend of parmesan cheese, freshly ground black pepper, red pepper flakes, and paprika, among other ingredients. I look forward to also trying the S'More Bars, Nacho Nacho Man Popcorn, Mocha Chocolata Latte Corn, and the Popcorn-Nut Munch Mix. I have to get used to the idea of using popcorn in main dishes, but I'll probably be Bohemian and try the Mac and Cheese Gratin. The book includes a history of popcorn, types of popcorn and how they differ, methods of cooking it, and several color photographs of some of the recipes. This is a fun and unique cookbook and will give me something too look forward to the next time my family asks for popcorn. They're in for a surprise! I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is mine and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required. If I didn't like the book I would say so.
