Triscuit Summer Snackoff Video Shoot
I recently filmed recipe videos at my home in Bedford for the Triscuit Summer Snackoff, which launched last Monday. The Snackoff invites you to create your own innovative recipes using Triscuit crackers, fresh, seasonal ingredients selected by me, and any other ingredients you choose, for a chance to win a trip to New York City, some great prizes and a meet and greet with me! Every two weeks I will announce a new ingredient, for a total of four challenges. Triscuit provided me with a selection of crackers so I developed recipes for each challenge to help inspire you. To see the finished video and my recipe using the first challenge ingredient, mixed berries, visit TriscuitSummerSnackoff.com
1 The shoot took place over two days in May, just when the weather was warming up after a rather cool spring.
2 The flowers were in full bloom and all the beautiful colors of summer were finally on display.
3 I posed with my Friesians after collecting these fresh, seasonal ingredients from my farm. The ingredient chosen for the first challenge was fresh berries!
4 The camera crew was busy getting the lighting and set right for a full day of filming.
5 The video production team discussed the strategy for the day.
6 Stylists made final adjustments to the food as filming was about to begin.
7 The camera crew calibrated their equipment to work well with the lighting in my kitchen. You can see me in the background checking email as I waited for them to finish.
8 Here I am with the first recipe of the Snackoff! Toasted Marshmallow Berry Bites—fresh berries and a toasted marshmallow on a crisp Triscuit cracker.
9 These are the perfect snack for Summer entertaining.
