There was something about living in New York City that made it effortless to spontaneously frequent the theater for a weekend matinee or a late midweek showing. Since I moved back to California a few years ago, going to the movies has been a treat few and far between. Life is also a bit more occupied these days. But that doesn’t mean I don’t eagerly anticipate award season year after year. The holidays is when I start catching up on all the buzz worthy films, binging from the comfort of my own couch or if I’m lucky, watching on the big screen – babysitter permitting. After all, I need to take part in the debate on whether or not Leo will finally take home the golden statue! When the Oscars roll around, I’m ready to roll out the red carpet for my movie loving friends by creating an easy to assemble spread of buttered popcorn, classic movie theater candy, champagne and a crowd pleasing charcuterie platter filled with a wide selection of cured meats, artisan crackers, nuts and dried fruit, black cherry jam, and of course, Boursin® Garlic & Fine Herbs cheese. How’s that for Best Spread?
