Plated and Sated, Thanks to the Great Passion-Ate

Yumbly thanks goes out to Rebecca, our neighbor and one of our resident artists, for a scrumptious noshe last night. Such a dear, she brought a lovingly-prepared plate of pork yumminess directly to our door (the plate is printed with the silhouette of a majestic stag — that’s deer to you! — but that’s another story).

We quickly cast aside our ordered-in delivery dinner to nom-nom-nom on her delicious stuffed pork tenderloin, baby-baby fingerling potatoes – sooo tiny!, what appeared to be sautéed radishes that tasted almost like sweet parsnips, and the tiniest micro greens topped with seeds from the fruit of Iran, pomegranate. Dish de-LISH!

Rebecca is an accomplished chef, artist, writer and proprietor of Still Life Gallery in Ellicott, Maryland with a studio here in the East Village — right down the hall from us! Please visit her blog  for the most amazing bits about food and fresh ingredients and check out to view her “ephemeral” artwork.

My fav is one of her new ones, “Granate,” in honor of the sweet but tart sensation.

My only regret is not being able to sit down and spend time with this wonderful woman. Next time she’s in town….

Until then, a spin of FashionWhirled to Rebecca!

P.S. Rebecca requests followers to her passion-ate blog, writing that she’ll be serving up her dishes at “impromptu places.” Duly noted! As impromptu, unexpected and thoroughly welcomed as just a few doors down, while wearing your jammies straight out of the shower with wet hair!
