Welcome back! Can you believe a year has gone by? We are back in the kitchen again for season three of Blank Plate. We gather back in our favorite kitchen with chef Kelston and teaching artist Alejandra. We spend the first class meeting each other, introduce the class curriculum and introduce the community and environment of Hunts Point.
We have a nice mix of students from high school to middle school with three locals right here from Hunts Point. We led the students through icebreaker in the kitchen so every one can get to know each other's names. Local returning students will lead the new students through an introduction to the neighborhood using postcards that prompt their imaginations. Since most students know cooking basics, we will have a great foundation to build on in the coming weeks.
We are just getting started. Stay tuned for weekly updates as our class gets weekly cooking challenges, kitchen safety, and other creative activities. Students will be keeping up blog posts on The Point's tumbler. Check out what they are up to here: thepointcdc.tumblr.com/
Thursdays, 4:45-7:30pm @THEPOINTCDC. @blank_plate
