The Chef: Joseph
The Menu: A health-promoting conglomeration of brown rice, black beans, corn, zucchini, garlic, onions, and spices, all topped off with fried onion crispy bits. Okay, so maybe fried onions aren't exactly what most people consider health food, but they do add a delicious crunch. In fact, we liked them so much we also generously portioned them onto our salads, which were mostly comprised of actually healthy items, like carrots and greens.
The Goods: It's definitely cold and flu season around the VNHQ, as evidenced by the fact that Joseph, who's usually excused from kitchen duty, has stepped in twice this week to take over for incapacitated coworkers. We're hoping that the imminent arrival of our January+February issue, in conjunction with Joseph's cold-fighting lunch, will miraculously rally our sickened spirits in time for a healthy weekend!
