I recently had lunch at the Google New York cafeteria with Tom Ritchford, whom I met at a Toronto hostel while helping Sarah Kapoor make a CBC segment about the Shangri-La Diet. No company personifies the Internet more than Google. Eating the wonderful free food at their cafeteria was like reading The New Yorker online. A this-can’t-be-happening experience.
Most successful dish: Orange Marmalade Whipped Cream.
Least successful: Thyme Nectarine Water.
Tom works at home three days a week partly to avoid the cafeteria, which caused him to steadily gain weight.
