Back in November, BP imaging’s photographer John Lynch used his skills in food photography to shoot for The WORKS Gourmet Burger Bistro. You may remember some of the menu photography BP imaging shot for The WORKS back in 2012 “The More Burgers The Better.” Since that shoot (close to 80 different burgers) the menu has expanded and even includes a promotional bacon menu! The burger enthusiasts at The WORKS continue to create unique hamburgers and combinations most people would never imagine.
A gourmet burger bistro with locations mainly in Southern/Eastern Ontario but range from London, Ontario to St. John’s, Newfoundland. When taking a glance at the menu it is obvious that they specialize in burgers and are out to make the “World’s Best Burger” creating fresh hand pressed patties daily. The WORKS offers 7 different types of burgers to tease everyone’s taste palette including Canadian beef, cheese stuffed beef, chicken breast, ground turkey, gourmet veggie, portobello mushroom cap and domestic elk. The menu also includes chicken sandwiches & wraps, a variety of appetizers (including Tower-O-Rings and crispy dills), salads, poutine, and shakes/floats.
There were two parts to this particular photo shoot. The first part included images for the recent bacon promotional menu “Believe In Baconism” which includes 3 different burgers, an appetizer and a shake (all items have bacon as a main ingredient). The second part of the shoot included a variety of new gourmet burgers to be added to the menu (as if they didn’t have enough) with ingredients ranging from nachos and french fries to horseradish and hot sauce.
