We've partnered with Simmer, a new app that allows you to generate step-by-step recipe videos that you can create, watch, and share from your very own kitchen. In the coming weeks and months, we'll continue sharing instructional videos that will teach you how to create tantalizing dishes from JBF Award winners, Beard House chefs, and even Beard himself, all prepared in James Beard's historic New York City kitchen.

This fancy, truffle-infused popcorn recipe from JBF Outstanding Chef award winner Patrick O'Connell is so delicious you'll want to make enough to last well beyond the end credits of any movie night. His secret? Adding a pinch of sugar to bring out the rich truffle flavor. In the video below, watch senior editor Elena North-Kelly walk you through the simple, crowd-pleasing recipe that will have you voted Outstanding Chef in your own circle.
