Here at MOO HQ, if there’s one thing that we like to do almost as much as print, it’s eating. Barely an hour passes by where there isn’t some form of cake, chocolate or other tasty treat laid out to tempt even the most puritanical health freak.
As you can imagine, the lunch room here becomes a hive of activity around 12 O’clock each day, as the hoards of hungry MOOsters get together to eat, chat and be merry. It’s a good way to get together with different people across the company, get inspired and most importantly, fill our faces with lots of lovely food!
Seeing all the great food that everybody eats inspired a group of us to hatch a plan – a magnificent plan – to enable each of us to share what we like the most. Hence, the MOO Lunch Club was born. A day was picked, and we all agreed to bring something homemade in to share with the other people in the group. Tuesday was the big day.
The members of the inaugural Lunch Club were a mixture of our Product and Design teams: George, Lena and myself from Product, and Monika, Jovanna, Suzie and Rob from Design. And what a feast we had! As you’ll see in the photo there was a whole Smorgasbord of treats to tempt our tormented taste buds. There was Feijoada from Brazil, Roasted Vegetable and Feta pie from the Mediterranean, and there was a superfood salad from, erm, Poland, among other things. We even washed it all down with homemade fudge for dessert.
We did get some admittedly bemused looks from some of our colleagues when they saw the table laid up for a dinner party, but those looks soon turned to jealousy when they saw the delights on offer. I suspect that the next Lunch Club may be rather over-subscribed!
Let us know what we should make at our next lunch club, or if you want to get in on the action, come and work for us – we’re recruiting!
Would your lunch club like to join my Let’s Lunch virtual lunch club? Once a month, a group of bloggers around the world (Paris, London, Melbourne, New York, San Diego, St. Louis…you get the idea) gets together to blog about a lunch & share it on Twitter. We’re doing “Foods for Seduction” for our November theme and posting on Nov. 11 — ping me at @CherylTan88 if you’d like to join! & Take a look at October’s as an FYI…: http://atigerinthekitchen.com/2011/10/cheese-onion-sarnie-a-working-mans-high-tea/
