On your Mark, get set, cook.
Our resident Chef Vicki Uriarte has thrown open her doors, and secrets, to the staff with a series of nightly cooking courses.
Never have people been so keen to stay back for dinner.
Last Wednesday was the first of the three sessions where Mark and M&C Saatchi Group members began their culinary education with the theme ‘Quick meals on a budget’.
After a brief overview on the metaphysical benefits of cooking, we were split into pairs, with each team given a separate dish to create.
Each pair toiled away, whilst Vicki offered advice on everything from how to chop capsicum to why you salt pasta. And as the cooking neared completion, some interesting trends began to arise.
Whilst the copywriters sang the praises of their food, the art directors took the more aesthetic approach. Account service fretted the food wouldn’t be made on time, and finance decided we had cooked too much.
A big thank you to Vicki for her time, expertise, and patience. And thanks to the boys for cleaning up - everything.
