Thanksgiving at GWK | Mac and Cheese


Mac and Cheese

The diversity of our team has contributed more than just success to our offices. It has also contributed a new way of celebrating Thanksgiving in a manner that takes pride in novelty and fusion.


At our business in particular, we are fortunate enough to experience Mexican-American, Jewish-American, Costa Rican-American and American Southern traditions of Thanksgiving all in one holiday. We, like so many other businesses and homes across the country, have the opportunity to taste the unique flavors each culture contributes, and subsequently, their own different takes on American classics.


This inevitably invites the timeless debate: who does it better?


This year, the office finds itself in a heated trial to determine who has best perfected the art of macaroni and cheese. You take your side.
