Product Description

Product Description

New from #1 Bestselling author Lori Jane Stewart!

Popcorn has probably been around longer than any other snack food on the planet. It has a rich history, dating back to before civilization and taking part in a multitude of events we celebrate every year. It's the most popular snack food around the world, and the second most popular snack in America (falling just behind potato chips). Popcorn can be found all over the country, at movie theaters, carnivals, and most people's kitchens or pantries.

It is a common misconception that popcorn is an unhealthy snack. The reason some people avoid popcorn is because they don't understand the real culprit! Behind its supposedly unhealthy status, are the seasonings and additives, often added to commercially packaged products to liven up the bland natural flavor and to lengthen it's shelf life. The popcorn itself is a wholegrain, and these can help prevent cancer and lower the risk of heart disease, while also supplying healthy nutrients that support our vision.

There are many different methods to create popcorn, but the basic principle stays the same. All you have to do is make the kernels hot enough to heat the moisture contained naturally inside, and turn that into steam. The steam creates pressure from inside the hard shell casing and before you know it, POP! - the kernel is turned inside out and is ready to be consumed. As long as you can generate heat and have some kernels on hand, you can make popcorn!

Enough of the history, what about the recipes? I've gathered 30 of the finest popcorn recipes from around the world for your snacking pleasure, and have tried to keep them free from artificial sweeteners, preservatives or other nasty additives wherever possible. I've specified 9 cups of popped corn for most recipes, as that gives 3 generous cups per serving - you can have as many or as few servings as you fancy, but keep an eye on the calories! For your convenience, I've also included nutritional data from the USDA for each recipe (that's the U.S. Department of Agriculture and not the United Square Dancers of America!)

My preference for both flavor and health reasons, is freshly air-popped popcorn - so I have used that kind for all of these recipes. Everything in this book can be made with kernels you have freshly popped, or if you are in a hurry (or feeling lazy!), then you can always use the plain store bought pre-popped variety - just make sure you check the packaging for artificial nasties!

Most of the ingredients for these recipes can be found at your local grocery store or deli, but if you get stuck, then the slightly more unusual ones can also be bought online via a link at the end of the book.

Enjoy preparing and sharing!



About the Author

The Green Gourmet is Lori Jane Stewart - an American author known for her books on food, wine, diet and nutrition. She is the writer of many international bestselling books including 'The Green Gourmet Organic Diet Book' and '50 Low Carb Brown Bag Lunch Recipes.' Lori has a passion for good food and fine wine. She loves cooking and creating recipes using easily available fresh and healthy ingredients, and especially with with local organic fresh produce. She lives in San Francisco along with her husband and two daughters. Early Life and Interests: Lori was born in Carmel-by-the-sea California in 1977. Her mother was a chef at a local seafood restaurant, and inspired by the rich cultural diversity of Carmel and her mother's experimentation with food, Lori developed an interest in cooking at an early age. At the age of fifteen, Lori met Sarah at school. Sarah's father was the owner of a renowned wine bar, and would ferry the girl to ad from school, when he would regale them with tales of fine wine, vineyards and often tales of the local vintners too! After graduating, Sarah's father offered Lori a job at his wine bar. This was where Lori learned about different types of wines and their distinguishing taste and properties. By this time, Lori had become an excellent cook. Her job at the bar gave her an opportunity to experiment with the use of wine in her food. Personal Life: In 1999, Lori met Ryan, a video game programmer and wine enthusiast. They married in 2002 and moved to his hometown of San Francisco, where now live with two beautiful daughters, Sandy and Emily. Both girls have inherited the passion for food and cooking and they love to spend their weekends in the kitchen, watching and learning from their mother. Sandy, now eight, according to Ryan, is already a master baker and makes delicious cupcakes - under her mother's watchful eyes! Ryan and Lori are both lovers of natural and organic food, and enjoy travelling to different regions to try the local specialities. On one such trip to Michigan, they helped an animal rescue organization save an abandoned greyhound found stuck in an icy lake, who they later adopted. Since then, Charlie has become a beloved member of their family who loves nothing better than their regular trips to the beach at Carmel.

HASH(0xa6375f90) out of 5 stars I am in heaven - Wow and double Wow May 8 2012
By avidreader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I love popcorn and am also turning into a huge fan of Ms Stewart. Combine the two and you get this fantastic book.

I have played around with different popcorn recipes before - some were quite successful (peanut butter popcorn) others were less so (sweet and salted didnt quite work for me) but the recipes included in this book were just begging to be made. So in the name of research (of course!) I tried a few.

My absolute favorite is the Pistachio Praline Popcorn. Hence the title of this review. If you only try one recipe try that one - it is just amazing. I couldnt share it with my kids as it didnt last til they got home from school. Will have to make it again.

For a savory snack you should try the five spice peanut popcorn. It wasnt hard to make and once tried you will never buy the store one again.

Top Marks for another green gourmet classic.

I have so enjoyed reading 30 Perfect Popcorn Recipes - I just had to write a review! I enjoyed the rich historical background provided which burst most if not all the misconceptions I had about popcorn. I liked the pictures provided, the methods for making healthy popcorn, the nutritional facts and calories per serving provided with each recipe.

The title - "Perfect Popcorn Recipes" - nails it - in my opinion!

My husband and I love popcorn so I jumped on this book.
Not only does Lori tell us some neat things about popcorn but the recipes are to die for. And a BIG plus is she gives you the nutritional facts. My husband has an insulin pump and this makes it so much nicer to use.
I can't wait to try all the recipes.

Make sure you go to the website at the end of the book to get 12 more popcorn recipes.

Kudos Lori....great book.

HASH(0xa6378804) out of 5 stars Terrific selection of ideas May 9 2012
By Andrew C - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Our whole family loves popcorn but I must admit I've always felt guilty about having it too often as I was worried it was unhealthy. This great book has been a real eye-opener and now I know exactly how to eat it the healthy way and how to eat it the unhealthy way! There's a great selection of different recipe suggestions here - I honestly had no idea it was possible to be so imaginative just with popcorn. Now I know what I'm doing I can knock up a delicious healthy snack any time I want and not feel bad about it. If you want to enjoy popcorn without feeling guilty this is the perfect book for you.

HASH(0xa63787b0) out of 5 stars I am a popcorn addict! May 11 2012
By Tisha S. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Is there anything better than smelling a freshly popped bag of popcorn? I can't think of many things. Maybe waking up to bacon frying in a pan but that's about it.

I absolutely LOVE popcorn! My family actually thinks it's a mild addiction, lol. There have been many days where I have eaten popcorn for breakfast and that is not an exaggeration.

I am SO glad that I found this book from Lori that lays out so many different types of popcorn recipes. Reading this book put me in popcorn heaven!

The book goes into the history of popcorn and also deals with different ways of cooking popcorn.

Of course, I can't wait to try some of these recipes that I haev never tried before:

Caribbean Sunset Layered Popcorn
Hazelnut Herb Popcorn
Pistachio Praline Popcorn
Pumpkin Chip Popcorn
Sticky Strawberry Popcorn Balls

There was a great mix of sweet and savory popcorn flavors in the book. If you are a popcorn addict like I am, you will LOVE this book!

Highly recommended!
