 Gazpacho is a Spanish classic, best made when juicy tomatoes are in season.

For the best taste, use real Parmesan cheese, stamped Parmigiano-Reggiano on the rind and available in chunks at most supermarkets.

  • ¼ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 8 cups plain air-popped popcorn, kept hot
  • Cooking spray


In a small bowl, mix together cheese, thyme, garlic powder, and salt. Place hot popcorn in serving bowl and coat with cooking spray; sprinkle with cheese mixture, tossing all the while, until well coated. 

Parmesan Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Parmesan Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
