"A collection of 100 recipes and wine pairings celebrating twenty-five years of the Cakebread Cellars American Harvest Workshop, a groundbreaking annual event that explores Napa Valley's vibrant food and wine culture"--
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 this special page on my website - www.greengourmetbooks.com/ing Enjoy preparing and sharing! Lori x P.S. - If 30 recipes isn't quite enough for you, then check the back of the book to find out how to get another 12, absolutely free!

Rice Cookbook: 50 Delicious of Rice Cookbook (Rice Recipes, Rice Flour Recipes, Rice Recipes Cookbook, Rice Recipes Cookbooks, Rice Recipes Book) Rice is a part of many traditional cuisines. It is used as a main dish as a side dish or as a decoration for food. People knew about rice a long time ago. It has been part of our meals for 5,000 years. The first information about rice was found in China about 2,800 BC. The rise has been a part of Chinese food tradition. Chinese legends provide information that rise is used so much in the Chinese cuisine thanks to the legendary Emperor of China Shennong who was also the inventor of Chinese agriculture. The rise was spread from East Asia to South Asia and after that in Europe. Also, it was introduced to Americans through the European colonization. Rice comes in many shapes, colors and sizes. There are several types of rice known worldwide. - Long Grain Brown Rice - Long grain rice has a long, slender kernel, four to five times longer than its width. Cooked grains are separate, light and fluffy. - Short Grain Brown Rice - Short grain rice has a short, plump, almost, round kernel. Cooked grains are soft and cling together. - Sweet Brown Rice - Sweet rice is short and plump with a chalky white, opaque kernel. When cooked, sweet rice loses its shape and is very sticky. - Brown Basmati Rice - India is well known for its fragrant Basmati rice, another aromatic long grain rice with a distinct popcorn aroma. - Chinese Black Rice - Chinese Black Rice is a medium grain rice with white kernels inside the black bean. Cooked, it takes on a deep publishing color. Rice is definitely the food we should include in our diet. It is full with nutrients. This food is really good for us, because it is very healthy. Rice contains proteins, iron, B vitamins and folic acid. These nutrition give us a lot of energy and that is why we do not need extra snacks. It is also important to know that the brown rice is whole grain and the white is not. Most of us are aware that we do not get as much fiber as we should. That is why rice is a good choice for our next meal. Whole grains are the healthiest option because they retain all the nutrients from the grain and are high in fiber.
