LISI | Cooking for the troops

Spending several days in a row on a construction site, each with twelve hour work shifts, is certainly going to burn some calories. Team Austria however, comes prepared with a designated cooking team, dedicated to filling everyone’s stomachs. Using shifts, everybody will get a chance to cook for 45 people during the 30 days. 
Months in advance, we sat together and brainstormed a menu that covers at least 24 days – a menu that will include nutritional, affordable and delicious food. The mornings start with lunch preparations and occasional shopping at wholesales. After having brought the meal to the other team members, we usually get right back in the kitchen to prepare a two-course dinner or do more grocery shopping for the upcoming days. Needless to say, the food supply for a team this size requires careful planning and a tight schedule.
