Pop Culture

No foodstuff screams American pop culture as loudly as popcorn, but modern movie popcorn tastes more like butter-flavored packing material than actual corn. Alton Brown takes a trip to the past to uncover the origins of the tasty treat, reveals the best corn for the job, and leaves no kernel un-popped in his search for the perfect popper. With recipes for Perfect Popcorn, Savory Herb Popcorn and Slacker Jacks.
