The Burnt popcorn really does tasty horrible. I discovered sweet popcorn in London while Fabian was living there. It fast become my favourite cinema snack. However it is nowhere to be found in Irish cinema, for some reason they sell horrible oversalted popcorn. So I’ve been searching the web to discover how to make some myself at home. I was surprised how little there was, there lot of recipes for caramel popcorn but I find it to0 sticky

I'm a mild-mannered scientist by day and a food enthusiast by night. My idea for this blog was (with the assistance of my fantastic boyfriend, Fabian) to share some recipes of my own creation and other recipes that I have personally found to work out well and all going well, some posts on the great local food we have in Ireland.
