Too long hidden away in dark movie theatres, popcorn is a treat that's ready to take a leading role! And on hand to give this humble kernel a star makeover is the wonderfully creative Hannah Miles who shows how popcorn can be dressed up in a riotous variety of fabulous flavours! Sweet treats range from classic Butter Toffee to indulgent Raspberry and White Chocolate. For those who prefer savoury flavours, the Pumpkin Seed, Chilli and Thai Spiced varieties are all great healthy snacking options. But it is the gourmet flavours that are not to be missed: try Margarita, Black Truffle or Salted Caramel popcorn for a truly decadent treat. Or simply combine this favourite snack into other popcorn treats such as Cookies, Cupcakes, Sundaes or Lollipops for the best of both worlds. The possibilities are endless and the preparation is simple, so join in the fun and start popping!
Hannah Miles was a high-flying legal eagle in London when a friend emailed her with details of a 'dream cottage' in the Bedfordshire countryside. Instantly besotted, Hannah ditched city life and headed for her rural idyll.
In 2007, Hannah competed in BBC television's popular MasterChef programme, in which she gained the hearts of the nation and the adulation of the judges: John Torode said of her 'I think Hannah is one of the most naturally gifted cooks I have seen in a long time'. One of the three MasterChef finalists, Hannah's food career has since taken off, though she still also practises law. She writes for various magazines, including Delicious, and continues to make television and MasterChef Live (Good Food Show) appearances.
She is the author of The Gluten-free Baker, Sundaes & Splits, Whoopie Pies, Mini Cakes, Milkshake Bar, Popcorn Treats and Cheesecake, all published by Ryland Peters & Small. The Savoury Gluten-free Baker is her newest book.
