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.

    Water isn;;t enemy of tempered choccolate, it's pre-crisis gold kryptonite for tempreed chocolate. Drop can untemper it.

    Packaging hasn't changed since the 1950's because it hasn't been made since the 1950's. Like you said it keeps basically forever. They literally made so much of the stuff they shut the plant down and converted it to a warehouse.

    I use Alton's popcorn method except using the top pan of my double boiler... it has a thin metal bottom. I did cover it with the foil and poke holes in it. All but 2 or maybe 3 kernels popped.

    I know it seems like a joke, but the Whirly-Pop makes movie style popcorn the best and easiest way I've ever had. Yep, it's a bulky unitasker, but if you want to make quality popcorn at home it's great.

    Hey, I think I can answer why that added chocolate step is called seeding!
    The action seems to parallel seeding when a chemist recrystallizes something. In that context, you add a solid of something to a liquid version of the same thing, and the solid grows out from the seed crystal. Point is, seeding a solution like that and seeding chocolate both have the goal of making the whole be higher quality when it resolidifies.

    I bought that Flavacol stuff from Amazon, it's fantastic. Very salty but gives that movie theater taste.

    I think there's a slightly more time efficient but physically exerting method where you put the raisins into a bowl with a tiny amount of melted chocolate and you keep mixing with a spatula until the chocolate layer dries out on the raisins, once it dries out you apply another layer of chocolate, make sure to keep your chocolate in the pot warm so you can keep doing it, I doubt anyone else would do it tbh cause you can just go to the store, but this also works with other fruits and nuts

    Been experimenting with popcorn and the silicone microwave popper is the easiest and best I've tried. Totally agree with coconut oil and flavicol.

    Buttery popcorn with sour patch kids are far better imho

    What kind of popcorn? And Avocado oil should work, yes? What about butter? Who gets movie popcorn without butter? How do I do that properly?

    One more way to make popcorn that I find delicious: air popped. You can add whatever you want after it's made (butter, salt, etc.), but those machines are cheap and you can find used ones for under $10 all the time.

    Sir, I find your slander toward milk chocolate offensive. I expect to see you at the nearest duelling field so that we might resolve this matter.

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

    This was great, until I realize that Flavacol isn't available in our country... So that's why our popcorn will always be inferior
