Immediate International

The Chef: Lisa

The Menu: A delectable spread of International dishes, plus Lisa's signature salad with garlicky dressing. Today's menu was inspired by two things: time constraints and what was in the pantry. Lisa added her own twist, namely fresh lemon juice and a couple extra spices, to Baji's Lentil Biryani and Nasi Goreng, and Viana's Veggie Döner Kebap. Flavorful and filling, this trio of ready-made dishes made for a fab, quick lunch.

The Goods: Every so often working at a magazine means we have to spend more time at our computers than in the kitchen making culinary magic happen, but you'd never know that today was one of them judging by Lisa's lunch. Our outdoor, mid-day meal was hurried along by a chilly wind, but since there's plenty of work to be done, we were happy to be well-fed fast!
