Family Meal at IWM

The kitchen staff awaits the onslaught.

Nearly every day at around 12:30pm, a call is made.

“Lunch!” someone screams from the back of the room, and people suddenly
pop up from their desks like meerkats and rush the elevator like buffalo.
Everyday, the IWM staff is treated to “Family Meal,” a banquet-style lunch
in the Studio del Gusto that includes salad, a selection of vegetables,
one or more meat options, along with an occasional bonus assortment of
Italian cheeses and desserts. Carefully prepared by the IWM’s culinary
team, it’s a great way for the staff to experience one of the services
that IWM does so well: events. Moreover, we get the opportunity to enjoy
IWM staff, converse like normal people, and flesh out ideas.

It’s true that occasionally lunch can be so much a mystery that while
devouring it, we’re all questioning what it’s in dish x, we appreciate
this IWM perk. It’s always a fabulous experience because it allows us to
bond, and it brings us closer to the kitchen staff, and they to us. H

Because a picture’s worth a thousand words (and I’ve given you only a
couple hundred), here are some photo opportunities from a recent “Family
Meal.”

    He was lurking off in the side in a Yankees t-shirt. Chef Kevin is camera shy.
