Dining ‘al desko’?

3rd June 2021

With many office workers in the UK returning to their desks, many face the dilemma of what to do about lunch. Last nights leftovers or lasagne? Sandwich or pasta salad? To eat outdoors or dine ‘al desko’? 

As peoples work schedules become busier than ever, many of us are choosing to work through lunch or eat in front of our computers. In fact, according to research by the Independent, more than one third of British workers don’t leave their desk during their lunch hour, mainly due to reasons involving productivity!

If you choose to eat ‘al desko’, it doesn’t have to be boring. Our team of development chefs have put together their top 10 lunch options, all full of colour and of course flavour.
