Over the past several weeks each division at NJI Media has cooked lunch for the rest of the team. Today we were lucky enough to have lunch prepared by the development team.

According to the initial buzz around the office, expectations were low – so low that most people brought a backup plan to the office this morning.

The verdict: delicious. Our team of developers are not only the most talented team of digital experts in DC, they’re also darn good cooks.

Beef, steak and Korean tacos
Chicken diablo
Cilantro rice
Homemade salsa, guacamole & white queso
