1/3 cup popcorn, 1/3 cup cooking oil, pour in frying pan and put on burner at medium-high heat, take pan off when popping stops, coat with popcorn salt and eat. Really gourmet chef level certification needed to accomplish.
Well some people’s palates won’t see the difference that’s for sure
The way I look at aside from me being a foodie, why should I put inferior products in my gut when for the same basic money I can put a superior product in . That’s not being gourmet , that’s being intelligent.
So for a little thought you can get a superior popcorn all measured with the correct amt of oil in the package. That’s not gourmet.
To make it understandable since you live in Hawaii....do you want to drink Folgers or do you want to drink Kona......both are coffees.
But I do understand, especially in American home of the hot dog, where people today really aren’t food conscious. They eat out, don’t cook, have little variety, eat lots of prepared processed foods or fast food. I mean it’s easier to eat an Eggo than make a waffle from scratch with good flour.
European and Asian cultures appreciate food and the culture of eating together.
The one improvement the newer generation ( millennials) bring to the table (sic) is nutritional values and quality sustainable ingredients. The eat much better than I did ( boomer) or the subsequent following generations. So there is hope.
All that in a popcorn discussion.������������������������������
