S3 BP Class 2: Herb + Spice Memories

This week in class two of Blank Plate, the classroom is the kitchen as students learn with Kelston to identify specific herbs and spices. After this hand-on introduction to the savory aspects of cooking, students are guided by Alejandra to choose a spice, herb, or any other ingredient that triggers a memory. Students ask who, what, when, where, why, and how when recording this memory in order to transcribe the details of their stories in their journal and share it back with the group.

Stay tuned on the Tumblr for students' to pictures, drawings, and recipes. thepointcdc.tumblr.com/

Thursdays, 4:45-7:30pm @THEPOINTCDC. @blank_plate


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.
