To coincide with its pop up film event ‘Rooftop Film Club presented by British Airways’, Michelin star chef Simon Hulstone has partnered with the airline to create a unique ‘Chim Chimney’ popcorn, inspired by Mary Poppins.
Chef Hulstone, said: “Mary Poppins is one of the most well-known and loved films, and its rooftop scenes in London inspired my ‘Chim Chimney’ popcorn. I use burnt onion ash to represent soot, which is surprisingly sweet and combined this with cheese extract to create the moreish taste - along with a spoonful of sugar of course! It conjures up images of chimney sweepers, London rooftops and the nostalgia of everyone’s favourite childhood film.”
The colourful looking gourmet cheese and onion popcorn will be served at the opening night of the Rooftop Film Club presented by British Airways, as well as screenings of Saving Mr Banks – a movie documenting how Mary Poppins was adapted for the big screen.
There are over 170 films to choose from throughout the summer, from May 1 until September 30, with tickets available from £13 at http://www.rooftopfilmclub.com , including Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, Top Gun, Reservoir Dogs, Casablanca and The Lego Movie among many others.
Movie-lovers can watch films under the stars in open-air venues, with the luxury of comfy chairs, blankets and wireless headsets to recreate the in-flight experience, at either the Bussey Building in Peckham Rye or the Queen of Hoxton in Shoreditch, London.
The airline has worked with Simon Hulstone, proprietor of The Elephant in Torquay, on a number of projects, including a mentorship with Heston Blumenthal to produce an ‘Olympic inspired menu’ served throughout the London 2012 Games.
