Prosecco, affordable and available at most grocery stores.
Also a Foreign Language contender since it’s Italian :)
Cast of Ingredients
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
1 large clove garlic, quartered
1 1/2 teaspoons dried herbes de Provence, (crushed between fingers to release flavor)
1/4 cup vegetable or peanut oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/2 – 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt to taste (1/2 teaspoon is plenty for us since the cheese is salty)
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan, Asiago, Romano Italian Cheese Blend~ I use Mama Francesca or you can grate your own.
Combine the butter, garlic and herbes de Provence in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until the butter melts. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let stand while making the popcorn.
Combine the oil and popcorn in a heavy large pot. Cover and cook over medium-high heat until almost all the kernels pop. Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl.
Remove the garlic from the butter and discard.
Add the salt, cheese and butter mixture to the popcorn. Toss until the popcorn is coated. Serve immediately.
