Chicago’s huge collection of diverse restaurants and eateries makes it a foodie favorite, whether they are local are traveling from across the country. Standing out as a foodie flocking ground is a must for any restaurant, whether that means serving instagrammable deserts or just using the best ingredients around. Cantigny Park is a famous summer afternoon day spot in the Chicago suburbs, while visitors come to enjoy the park grounds, many are surprised by the delicious gourmet food options served at Le Jardin restaurant. Vanilla Video worked with Sous Chef Eric Chaplin to create fun, shareable recipe videos for their website and social media channels.
This video shows ingredients joining forces together to create beautiful and delicious Crème Brule dessert. While there are many ways to create a recipe video, using a top-down view and stop motion filming is the most popular on social media today. Chef Eric puts a Cantiny Park spin on the video by using a wooden countertop as a backdrop, and incorporating farm-house style kitchen accessories such as a glass milk bottle and ceramic egg holder. Though these are minor details, they help strengthen Cantigny’s brand presence throughout the video. Le Jardin serves homey favorites, so a down-home country feel compliments the delicious food served at the park’s restaurant.
