Laura, our promotions manager, donned her chef hat to try her hand at making lunch!

The finished product: fresh mozzarella, arugula, capers and prosciutto! Not bad for a first-timer!

John and our promotion's manager enjoyed a tasting dinner at Bull & Bear- an award-winning restaurant at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando.
What would dinner be without wine pairings... Does the fancy long-neck decanter mean the wine is extra good? (it was!)
Their signature Tomahawk
36oz bone-in rib-eye...
We got a taste of the Tomahawk and Pan Roasted Dover Sole. DELICIOUS!!!
The steak was topped off with a tallow candle of herbs and other delicious ingredients.
The Lemon... it is a sweetened lemon rind filled with lemon sorbet! Amazing, but don't take our word for it, try it yourself!!!
