A ‘real’ burger photoshoot

For a few months now there has been a bit of a buzz in Brighton about a new mobile catering business called The Troll’s Pantry. I can usually take or leave a burger, but quality of the food at Trolls is so tempting that I’d dare even the most hardened health freak to turn them down.

Paul, the owner of Trolls is on a mission to bring quality street food to the people of Brighton. All his burgers are handmade using locally produced 100% 35 day aged steak mince from ‘wild range’ grass-fed Sussex Longhorn Cattle. He also makes his own brioche burger buns – seriously! Most of the fillings are also sourced locally, one even includes Brighton’s very own Small Batch Coffee.

I’m always happy to give a hand to local, ethically minded businesses when I can, so Paul and I recently organised a photoshoot of his latest range of burgers. Did you see the McDonald’s viral about why their burgers look nothing like the ones you actually get served? In terms of styling on this shoot, yes we were obviously careful to ensure each unique filling was visible at the front of the burger, but that’s it – cook, fill, shoot, eat. The burgers you see in the pictures are pretty much what you’ll get when you buy one!

    I need to get myself over to Brighton as soon as possible to pick up one of these bad boys! They look delicious. I want to reach into the screen and grab one!

      It would be worth the trip, believe me! I didn’t need to eat for the rest of the day afterwards!

    Those burgers look like a real burger should. Made me want to reach into my screen and take a bite.
