Season Two 2013: Blank Plate Class Five: Pachanga


Pachanga: a Spanish slang word meaning to party hard, normally with many people.

So last night, we were able to finalize the theme for the event; it is going to be Latin Food. Now for the name we propose; Fun Fusion, La Gran Pachanca or Latin Party. We have to finalize the date of the event to start promoting. Stay tuned!  We had 13 students last night! And here's some of the idea generating we did to get to the theme of our party!


Blank Plate

Design. Cook. Transform. Blank Plate Project is a creative culinary “design/cook” program, begun in Hunts Point, South Bronx that sparks community development through a combination of design-led imaginative activities and chef-led demonstrations for weekly community dinners, or culminating in a community event. By learning through a design sensibility, applied personal experiences, and industry-relevant culinary skills, students develop the creative capital, neighborhood stewardship, and food justice advocacy skills necessary for their own success and for the future of their community. Over the course of each Blank Plate workshop, students learn creative culinary skills and plan a final dinner event of their own imagination. Blank Plate is a different kind of cooking class. Together, we design, cook, and transform.
