Truffle Popcorn

Recipe: Eric Vellend

This addictive snack is inspired by an amuse-bouche I enjoyed at Graham Elliot, a whimsical fine dining restaurant in Chicago. For a fun presentation, serve it in little paper bags.


  • 1 80-g bag natural flavour microwave popcorn
  • 1/3 cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp white truffle oil
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives
  • Freshly ground pepper


Yield: Serves 4 to 6

  1. Microwave popcorn according to instructions on package. Transfer to a large bowl. Sprinkle with cheese and toss. Drizzle with truffle oil and melted butter and toss. Add chives and pepper. Mix well. Transfer to a large serving bowl or individual paper bags.
