Name: Rebecca (Becca) Powell
Job Title: Host/Busser (Support Staff)
How long have you worked for Corner Kitchen?
I started working for Corner Kitchen right before Christmas 2018. So just over two months.
What’s the best meal you’ve had at Corner Kitchen?
I’m vegetarian so I love that CK always has veggie options. My favorite meal is the veggie lasagna (when it’s on the menu), and I adore our Brussels Sprouts!
What kitchen (or bar) tool could you not live without?
A quality non-stick pan. I love a good stir fry.
If you could only have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I would probably cheat and make it 3 courses: arugula salad, a tossed pasta primavera, and cheesecake!
What’s the worst meal you’ve ever had?
Cafeteria pizza as a kid.
What’s your favorite food movie?
I don’t know if this counts but Bridesmaids. I love that the cop is so supportive of her bakery. And I would love to try one of her cupcakes!
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?
My roommate loves to clean and the other day I came home to find him with all the windows open, blasting music, and hanging by his knees from his bedroom window to clean the outside while singing along at the top of his lungs. It took him at least two full minutes to notice me doubled over laughing on the porch!
What’s the last thing you watched on TV and why did you choose to watch it?
I just started watching The Umbrella Academy on Netflix. I am a huge Ellen Page fan and really like their take on the superhero craze. So far it’s pretty good.
How do you spend your time outside of work?
When the weather is nice I love to play Volleyball at carrier park. I go to a lot of shows at The Orange Peel. This winter I have mostly been binge watching shows with my boyfriend. We just finished The Marvelous Miss Maisel. 10/10 strongly recommend!
Anything else you’d like to share about you?
I moved to Asheville from Charlotte in the summer of 2018. I have always loved coming to visit and am so glad that I’ve made it my permanent home. The community is great, the music scene is awesome, and the food, phenomenal!
