Movie snacks: Seven ideas for movie munchies
Nowadays, movies and popcorn belong together, just like Jack and Rose or Romeo and Juliet. But if these ideas for movie nibbles show us anything here at Finca Martelo, it’s that there’s life beyond popcorn.
Innovative and traditional ideas, classics or exotic treats, for one or to share: these original snacks go perfectly with a glass of Finca Martelo and your favourite blockbuster.
Edamame, Asia’s no.1 snack
Edamame is starting to become more popular in Europe, but it has been a number one snack in countries like China, Japan and Taiwan for centuries. At first glance, edamame beans may look like pods, but they are actually tender soy beans that have been cooked in water and salt. If you eat one, you’ll have to have more.
Nachos for everyone
Whether you eat them with cheese or guacamole, nachos are the perfect accompaniment to a movie night with friends. Open a bottle of Finca Martelo, pop the sauces in a couple of bowls and you’re ready to settle down to a great film.
Hummus and Crudités
Made from cooked chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice and olive oil, hummus is one of the Middle East’s most delicious offerings when it comes to snacks. It’s perfect for movie nibbles, especially when accompanied by crudités or freshly toasted sourdough.
An Iberian platter
You don’t need to travel far to find a first-rate alternative to popcorn. At Finca Martelo, when friends are invited to the Bodega Torre de Oña for a movie, we love to cut up some Iberian delights like cured ham, cheese, pork loin and sausage. It’s a Spanish classic that never fails.
Share a pizza
Pizza is the perfect appetizer for evening sessions when hunger sets in. It doesn’t matter if it’s a classic prosciutto and funghi pizza or a barbecue one. Pizza is particularly good if you prepare it at home, while you finish deciding which movie you’re going to watch that night.
Macedonia fruit salad, the perfect blend
Pineapple, strawberries, apple, orange, grapes, kiwi, blueberries, mango… The list of fruits that make a guest appearance in this appetizer could not be more appealing. Serve it in individual bowls and enjoy the mix of colours and flavours.
Sushi, the most sophisticated snack
Choose your favourite maki, nigiri and uramaki; take out a bottle of Finca Martelo; pour a couple of drinks; hand out the chopsticks and press play. And there you have it – the perfect plan for a movie night with a touch of #Martelism.
Now that you have the snacks, you just have to choose the perfect movie. If you want a suggestion, here are some of Martelo’s favorites.
