Max and Eli Sussman, Brooklyn-based brothers and cookbook authors (Max is the Chef de Cuisine at Roberta's; Eli is a line cook at Mile End):

"When you're holed up at home debating what the third movie you watch will be, popcorn is the perfect hurricane snack because it can be either salty-sweet or savory. Plus, you can always make popcorn the old-fashioned way on the stove top if you lose power and you can make your own flavor combinations with any non-perishable ingredients you have in your kitchen. That’s the beauty of popcorn as a blank slate. And we know you probably went a bit overboard grocery shopping so you should have more than enough ingredients to make these popcorn recipes."
