High Idea

Posted By on Wed, Sep 26, 2012 at 5:34 PM

Corporate lunches can by dry affairs by any stretch ---it’s no exaggeration to say that the food is usually the most exciting part. Especially with Jessi Gillis cooking it up for you. Highland Drive Catering is debuting their new fall corporate lunch menu, featuring goodies like a pulled pork jalapeno sandwich and bacon chocolate chip cookies. Gillis works out of the Highland Drive Storehouse (5544 Kaye Street, 999-7897) in the Hydrostone, a shop she opened earlier this year. She collaborated on the fall menu with one of the newest additions to the Highland Drive Storehouse, chef Vince Scigilano, formerly of Gio. With a focus on local food, Gillis wants to up the ante when it comes to corporate catering in Halifax. “I just wanted to create a really delicious menu where we would be able to use local food and create dishes that complemented them,” she says. “Corporate lunches aren’t always seen as delicious or even that important, but we think they can be.”
