Binging with Babish: Movie Theater Popcorn & Raisinets from Whiplash

  • Published on Sep 19, 2017
  • Pre-order my first cookbook, Eat What You Watch: A Cleverly-Titled Romp Through the Fanciful Fêtes of Fiction! Really it's just called Eat What You Watch, but I should have called it that instead.
    Barnes & Noble:
    Check out my collab with William Osman here!
    Whiplash is probably best remembered for its Oscar-winning performances, Oscar-winning screenplay, and the triumphant return of Paul Reiser to the silver screen. And no scene more memorable than the incredulously shared movie theater snack crunched upon by the man himself and his son - follow along today as we unlock the secrets of true movie-theater popcorn at home, pointlessly recreated Raisinets, and the dark art of tempering chocolate.

    It’s called seeding because the chocolate added after melting is used as a “seed” for the crystals in the chocolate to grow

    For the chocolate, I’d suggest a 2:1 semisweet and dark chocolate mix for a more sour taste, but not too sour, and for a sweet balance, just go semi sweet.

    Tempering is simply altering the crystals of the chocolate. Seeding promotes change in the crystal hence why considered as tempering

    One of my favourite treat snacks is salted popcorn with melted Lindt/Lindor chocolate drizzled over. I imagine it's a similar effect to this, but the melty richness of the Lindt goes perfectly with the saltiness of the popcorn... To anyone reading this - I seriously recommend giving it a go if you never have!!

    Pro tip: Movie theaters don't use real butter to top the popcorn. The reason is because the water in butter causes the popcorn to go limp and loose the crispiness. For toppings, you either need to use clarified butter to remove moisture OR use what movie theatres use which is Buttery Popcorn Topping. If you're going to go all out with Flavacol, you need to get the topping correct, too.

    As someone who owns an authentic popcorn machine and uses Flavacol, I guarantee you it makes a hell of a difference. You just can't go back after trying it, it's just as good and arguably better than at the movie theater.
    And if you want, Flavacol also offers glazed popcorn and caramel popcorn mixes if you wanna shake things up.

    I've heard (from Bill Bryson) that chocolate is significantly worse in America than the UK, so perhaps you need to come here and try it with our superior blends that don't taste like christmas tree decorations.

    Not sure if you go back and read these, but you asked about "Seeding" & "Tempering" Chocolate.
    Which is actually similar to Tempering Steel..
    I am a Welder/Fabricator, Ornamental Iron Worker.
    I know about this process because I was learning about tempering steel years ago, Google poped "Tempering Chocolate" as a search result, I have an inquisitive nature and Love to Cook/Bake.
    Chocolate has 6 Crystalline structures, which 5 (V) is the Most palatable, stable & visually appealing. The processes you took, by where you heated up the Chocolate, cooled it Reheated then seeded.
    The first heat destroys all crystal structures, the second heat "at a lower temperature" destroys structure 4 (IV) crystals leaving the (V) in tact, then "Seeding" melting Chocolate which still has structure (V) crystals at the lower 90° which won't destroy the (V) crystals.....
    Both (IV) & (V) crystals form when Chocolate is cooled @ room temperature (IV) @ it's own rate (V) @ a slower rate.
    Your Wacky & Cool TV/Movie food videos are quite entertaining, Thank You: Kegger 😀
