Cooking was a passion that Stella got honestly—through nature and nurture. Together, Stella and her mama spent hours in the kitchen preparing daily meals for the family and special holiday feasts for the extended family. Certain things were simply truisms: cook on a gas stove, allow time for simmering, know where your ingredients are from and grow them yourself when you can, let natural flavors shine on their own, and most importantly, always cook from the heart. Love is always the main ingredient. These lifelong lessons are carried through into every bag of Stella’s Popcorn.
