    While no one in the culinary art world is quite sure when the first popcorn ball was invented its origin is usually associated with an old Nebraska myth. According to legend, popcorn balls invented themselves during the “Year of Striped Weather” which fell between the years of the “Big Rain” and the “Great Heat”.

According to myth the weather was so extreme that the rain washed the sugar right out of the sugarcane and the intense heat popped the corn in the corn field. Because the sugarcane was grown on a hill the sugary syrup ran down into the cornfield below rolling the corn into giant balls. The story ends with grasshoppers eating all the popcorn balls on July, 21 1874. Continue...

  • Halloween Food Traditions

    October 12, 2011 Le Cordon Bleu Minneapolis/St. Paul 0 Comments

    Today’s celebration of Halloween, or All Hallows Even, is a comic and macabre mixture of laughing children begging at doors for candy and cinematic killers and beasts slavering to decimate unaware teenagers.
