I always enjoy showing that food can be theatrical and not just something to fill you up. In this instance the popcorn replaces the predictable bread-and-butter that you would traditionally serve. By adding truffle oil and herbs, you take it to another level.

Truffled Popcorn (Serves 4)

Prep Time: 5 to 7 minutes; Cooking Time: 2 to 3 minutes


Corn oil, for stovetop popping (optional)

1 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

1 tbsp truffle oil

1 oz. (about 1/4 cup) Parmesan cheese, finely grated (I use a Microplane for grating)

2 tbsp chopped fresh chives

2 tsp salt

1 tsp freshly-ground black pepper

Directions: Pop the corn kernels in a standard hot air popper or in a covered deep saucepan with a little corn oil. Transfer the warm popcorn to a large bowl and add the butter and truffle oil. Toss well to coat the popcorn with the butter and oil. Add the Parmesan, chives, salt, and pepper. Toss well. Transfer the popcorn to a brown paper bag or serving bowl. Serve immediately.
