Remotes at the ready! Food writer Rosie Birkett presents three action-packed courses
Rosie Birkett ’s movie-night munchies
We’re getting into cosy-night-in territory now, and whether that means sitting down with the family to devour a box set (Succession is my current obsession), or gathering mates to watch A Star Is Born, it calls for a menu that can be prepped ahead, leaving you free to concentrate on the action.
The spiced popcorn is the perfect snack to kick things off. The simple pizza dough, meanwhile, provides a versatile base for DIY toppings. Baby potatoes with rosemary and garlic is one of my all-time favourites (don’t knock the carb-on-carb combo until you’ve tried it), and the salami version is based on one I had at the legendary Grimaldi’s in Brooklyn. The dough freezes really well so make more than you need and whack a couple of balls in the freezer for your next night in.
And because I believe that homemade ice cream is for everyone (not just those with fancy machines), here’s a no-churn recipe. Another great thing to have in the freezer, though it won’t last long…
DESSERT No-churn ricotta and blackberry ice cream
MAIN Pizza with two toppings
SNACK Spiced buttered popcorn
