Updated on March 12, 2011

Looking for a gift idea for the popcorn lover in your life? Or, are you a big fan of popcorn snacks yourself? Anyone who enjoys the crunchy goodness of popcorn is sure to take delight in this book! Written by Patrick Evans-Hylton, Popcorn is packed with unique and delicious ideas for different ways to enjoy this tasty treat.

You'll find more than 60 different – and interesting – popcorn recipes in this fun recipe book. Whether you're a fan of savory popcorn or if you prefer sweet snacks (or if you like that seemingly contradictory contradiction of sweet and salty snacks), you're sure to find a number of ideas that you'll want to try in this book.

About the Book

Popcorn opens with a brief description of the history of popcorn, starting with facts you may not know about how early cultures prepared and enjoyed popcorn thousands of years ago, cooking it in bowls filled with sand over an open fire. If you enjoy the modern convenience of electric popcorn poppers, microwave popcorn, and of course those wonderful kernels prepared and your local movie theater, you'll be really interested to see how the modern snack you enjoy today began and changed throughout history.

The book also contains information about the different types of popcorn. If you think that all popcorn is the same, the information in this section might be a real eye opener for you. You'll find out about the different colors of popcorn, varying shapes of different types of popcorn kernels, the difference between gourmet and bargain popcorn kernels, and more. You'll also learn interesting facts about different methods of popping popcorn, including stovetop cooking in a pot, various types of mechanical popcorn poppers, microwave popcorn (both homemade and store-bought), and more.
