Dinner at Magdalena Baltimore in the Ivy Hotel

So let’s talk about this amazing dinner I had at the restaurant Magdalena inside of Baltimore’s super chic “The Ivy Hotel.”  The  Magdalena boasts itself as a fine-dining bistro and a culinary jewel of Baltimore.  I COULDN’T AGREE MORE!

The menu is built upon the finest local ingredients, and changes with the seasons and the inspiration of the chef.  The chef, Mark Levy, is doing a little more than cooking in that kitchen, he is putting love and skill in these dishes.

My guest and I were amazed at how beautifully plated each dish was as well as the combination of flavors.

Favorite Appetizer: Raw & Shellfish Platter & Salad of Belgian Endive & Braeburn Apple

Favorite Entree: Roasted Magret Duck Breast, Corn Blinis, Grilled Peach, Chanterelles & Duck Sausage Gravy

Favorite Desert:  Meyer Lemon & Huckleberry Sundae, Olive Oil Cake & Coconut Cream

How does Plated work?


How does Plated work?

New York transit is full of advertisements.  I often have one of the moments where I say to myself “OOOOhhh I want to try that”, however by the time you make it off the train and get distracted by everything else the city throws at you, my “oooohhh” moments just fall to the wayside.  A while back, I noticed an advertisement for “Plated” and had one of those moments.  And now I can share with you how one of those moments actually happened!

Here is how Plated works…

It really is that easy!  I had so much fun cooking this Asian Chickpea Bowl.  I will feature the other I made later this week.  Plated makes you feel like a chef.  I would have never cooked anything like this, EVER!  And after all of your handwork you get to eat it and it was super yummy.  Grocery shopping is so hard for me because of the waste.  I try to shop for two meals at a time to cut down on waste.  Plated is perfect because it is proportioned and I always have enough to take for lunch the next day!  I would recommend this to anyone, single or families.  The delivery is reliable and the meals are good!  Stay tuned for my next “Plated Dish.”
