truffled popcorn

November 4th, 2010


Crisp air. Falling leaves. Shorter days. Autumn has arrived. Finally. Time for boots, cashmere sweaters, consecutive holiday festivities, and my favorite, truffles!

If you are a parent you most likely have been consumed with Halloween activities for no less than one month.  Now the “tricks or-treats” have been exchanged your little ghosts and goblins are tucked in their beds.  Time for your own Halloween treat: truffled popped corn paired with a good French red wine (pardon the redundancy).   A simple, deliciously addictive, idea which takes advantage of the season.  If you do not have fresh truffles you can use truffle salt which can be ordered on the internet.   I have included additional blogs for those of you who want to learn more about truffles and how to incorporate this ingredient in your cooking with a few simple recipes beyond popcorn.  If this does not interest you, skip directly to the popcorn recipe which is below.   Happy Halloween and “bone” appétit !
