If you were going to make an effort for the Oscars, this Sunday’s one should probably be it – their 90th anniversary. West Pack Lifestyle will help you set the scene.
But first, popcorn!
In the true spirit of Oscar night, what’s the moves without popcorn, right? There’s nothing cheaper, or more fun, so create a DIY popcorn bar of different flavours.
The most affordable way to serve them without compromising on your fun movie night feel is in old-school brown paper packets (R23.90 for 50 Brown Paper Packets S08) and stock up on popcorn sprinkles (available in 150g packets, R14.90 each from your nearest West Pack store in flavours like sour cream and chives, fruit and chutney, butter and cheese).
Cajun Popcorn: Combine a pinch each of salt, pepper, ground cumin, garlic powder, dried basil, dried thyme, paprika and cayenne pepper, and add to melted butter. Place air-popped corn in large bowl and toss in seasoning mixture to coat
Parmesan Popcorn: Combine equal quantities grated Parmesan cheese and melted butter with a dash each of Italian herbs and salt. Pour over warm air-popped corn and toss to coat.
Cinnamon Popcorn: Place 8 cups air-popped corn in a baking pan. In a small bowl, mix 1 lightly beaten egg white, ½ cup (125ml) sugar, 1 tsp (5ml) cinnamon and pinch of salt. Add to popcorn and bake in preheated 150°C oven, 20 minutes.
If you’re thinking plain popcorn, we’ll let you off the hook, but only if you dress it up with fun popcorn themed buckets!
