  • 1/4 cup canola oil or grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 3 tbsp black truffle butter (recipe here)
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1/4 oz fresh black truffle, finely grated (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt, plus more to taste
  • Fresh cracked black pepper


  1. Heat oil in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Add a few popcorn kernels to the pot and wait for them to pop. When the kernels pop, add the rest of the popcorn and shake until they are coated in oil. Cover with a lid.
  2. Once the popcorn starts popping, crack the lid to let the steam escape and gently shake the pot every so often to prevent burning. When the popping slows to several seconds between pops, remove from heat and pour into a large bowl.
  3. Wipe out pot and discard any unpopped kernels. Add truffle butter to the hot pot and swirl it around until it melts.
  4. Drizzle it over the popcorn, then add the parmesan, grated fresh truffle (if using), salt and black pepper. Toss to coat and serve hot.
