Popped Culture: A Social History of Popcorn in America
Andrew F. Smith (au)
In this fascinating book, Andrew Smith, who teaches culinary history, investigates the flavorful myths surrounding popcorn’s introduction, the reasons behind its unflagging popularity, & its ever-increasing success through a fortuitous association with new technologies, such as radio, movies, & microwaves. He provides a detailed history of popcorn, from Colonial settlers who were introduced to popcorn by American Indians, through boardwalk popping machines, to movie theater-popped corn & microwavable snacks, & includes popcorn products like Cracker Jack. There are even dozens of recipes. A well-documented & well-illustrated piece of work, taking a tiny kernel of culinary culture & broadening it to include the sweep of American history.
