Menus – So Good You Won’t Believe it’s Conference Food!

  • Comments 10

If you’re like me, one way I rate conferences is based on the food! We take planning the menus very seriously, so much so, that we even do taste tests! I enjoy that part of my job, but we really do it so that we can make sure we have a nice variety of great tasting items, that will satisfy all palettes and preferences. Here’s a run down of the plans for this year! I hope you’re drooling with anticipation!

  • Hey Paulette, any statistics on how many pounds the average MVP gains during the Summit? <grin>

    See you there!

    Ken

  • how about halal food,  how it will serve

    I and many want hallal menu food

  • @Imran Yes, we'll definitely have Halal options...we just talked about that yesterday in our logistics meeting. I'll find out where we order our Halal meals from. Some attendees, for example, those who haven't filled out their Schedule Builder, will get meal cards. Microsoft has Halal options in the cafeterias. One way or another, via specially ordered meals or a meal card, you will have your preferences met!

  • Good thing that the hotels have a gym for me to burn calories from all those oh' so tasty food :).

  • Paulette, I have to eat gluten-free. To whom do I speak to make sure I have meals available?

  • @Craig If you need gluten free, did you note that when you registered to come to the event? If not, at this late stage, will you please contact me at pauletts@microsoft.com and we will note your records on the back end? Have you built your Personal Schedule yet?

  • Men looks pretty tasty, and glad to see that like last year you are exercising some restraint with the salmon :)

    Definitely bringing my gym clothes for this trip.

  • Er, um, that is, the MENU looks pretty tasty :)

  • Wow!  Can I get a head start on any of this?

    Forget the gym... I'll start marathon training again while I'm out there.

    I'll just have to decide between marathon running or marathon eating...

  • I'm so glad you're looking forward to it. Whether you are vegetarian or not, be sure to get one of the veggie sliders at the Welcome Reception! It is outstanding!!
