The Chef: Jenny
The Menu: A hearty and filling bisque. Ms. Jenny had us salivating at our desks as the aroma of acorn squash wafted into our workspace. Whipped up with carrot and potato, then spiced with rosemary, nutmeg—oh, and our usual addition of Parma—this seasonal dish hit the spot. Italian-inspired couscous made an appearance alongside, successfully squelching any and all hunger pangs.
The Goods: Between the bisque and guest appearance of sunshine, we were feeling the heat this afternoon. Not that we're complaining—it was more than welcome after a chilly Monday morning gave way to residual sniffles from last week's sickness streak. We'll take a healthy dose of vitamin D and fresh air over fluorescent lighting any day.
