Popcorn is one of Americans’ favorite snack foods, so it’s no wonder those kernels have their own holiday. Today, January 19th, marks National Popcorn Day, and what better way to celebrate it than to indulge in the irresistible treat.
Light, fluffy, and jam-packed with flavor, popcorn has been a popular snack-time favorite for centuries. Although commonly associated with movie theaters and sports stadiums, more than 70 percent of popcorn is consumed in the home, and the United States leads the world in annual popcorn production and consumption. Only one type of corn—popcorn—has that distinctive ability to pop, and the popping occurs when the kernel is heated to a temperature of nearly 350 degrees. The high temperature affects the starch and moisture inside the kernel, increasing the internal pressure until the hull of the kernel bursts open and voila! Popcorn!
The National Active and Retired Federal Employees Associations or (NARFE) selected Ranch Events to cater their Holiday lunch. Thanks to Event Planner, Ramon Salido, NARFE was extremely happy with their event. They were so pleased with the food and service, Ramon received a gracious email that stated the following:
Thank you for providing an excellent catering service at our Holiday Luncheon. The food was great, the presentation was very nice as the tables were decorated in red table throws with complimentary green napkins, and we got some 110 people (seniors, who tend to be a bit persnickety) served in 25 minutes. We did have two carvers (as requested) and Scott’s suggestions, the Event Captain, on the line layout were right on. Many thanks to Scott and his crew. We will be using Scott’s layout for next year so the luncheon service should run even smoother.
