The movies make us hungry… for popcorn. No matter the genre we are slated to see, we step foot inside the theater and beeline for the incandescent counter. With a buttery bowl in our lap, we are ready for everything Hollywood tries to throw at us.
So with the ultimate movie night upon us – the Oscars – we encourage you to throw a viewing party slash popcorn tasting. All you need to round out the festivities is a champagne topped cocktail (like this Negroni Sbagliato from our friends at W&P) or an old-fashioned bottled Cokes. May the most flavorful movie and recipe win.
Pop-up for the Oscars
Paprika + Pasolivo Tangerine Olive Oil:
Hailing from the Central Coast of California, Pasolivo makes olive oil infused with oh-so-fresh flavors. The tartness of the tangerine oil complements the smokey notes of the paprika.
Persephone Caramel Sauce + Sea Salt:
What doesn’t taste better drizzled in caramel sauce?
Movie Candy Popcorn (inspired by Honestly Yum):
Get past the gimmick and see the genius of mixing plain popcorn with movie-theater candy (chocolate varietals work best like mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups). Glue it together with some salt.
Angostura Bitters-Glazed Popcorn:
A glaze of butter, sugar, salt, cinnamon and bitters drizzled over popcorn, then baked briefly – sweetly unique. Keep whiskey handy in case this makes you crave a cocktail.
Tipsy Maple Corn:
Cracker Jacks on crack. This recipe incorporates all our favorite food groups: Maple syrup, popcorn, cured pork, butter, peanuts and whiskey. Mix it all together and get a crispy, salty-sweet concoction sure to please even the staunchest popcorn purest.
Louise Copper Bowls:
With a flash of "gold" (ok, copper) these bowls make for the perfect popcorn vessel for the event.
In case your guest list exceeds your regular seating capacity, the wool blanket doubles as a landing zone for impromptu floor seating.
Marble Lidded Box:
The perfect accessory for sea salt for any additional seasoning.
You decide the winner!
