International Lunch

Every year we celebrate the different nationalities in our company by holding an International Shared Lunch. The amount of food, the variety, and the tastiness of the dishes are amazing! This lunch is one of the highlights of the year.

This year the Asian style Beef Salad by Mush, our Visual Merchandiser, was a winner amongst us in the design team. She kindly shared the recipe, which I have posted below for you to enjoy as well...
