Here at FOOD52 we occasionally spend time in the kitchen replicating our favorite lunch-at-work items, like Amanda's 'wichcraft-inspired Shrimp and Chorizo Sandwich above. But Brian Palmer, the author of this Slate piece on guerilla cooking in the office itself, totally has us beat! He describes bringing a hot plate or fondue pot into the office along with a skillet -- non-stick for easy cleanup and fewer questions in the office kitchen -- along with a toiletry case full of spices. It's best to prep ingredients at home for quick preparation on the job, as with his recipe for vegetables with couscous and toasted nuts.

The idea is more than a little crazy, but to be honest, so is paying $10 for a so-so sandwich every day at noon. Would you cook in your office if you could?
