The Educated Palate Warms Season with Jamaican Cuisine

We are part of The Trust Project

The Educated Palate, a student-run restaurant on the Putnam/Northern Westchester BOCES campus, will open its doors to diners on Thursday, February 10, with a four-course luncheon featuring Jamaican cuisine.

The luncheon is one of four open to the public during this school year. Others feature the cuisines of Scandinavia, March 10; France, April 28; and the Mediterranean, May 12. Reservations are required and seating begins promptly at 11:45 a.m. The cost is $25 per person.

The Educated Palate is operated entirely by students in The Tech Center’s Hospitality Career Academy, a program accredited by the Association for Career and Technical Education.

Hospitality Career Academy students learn all aspects of culinary and pastry arts, while fulfilling high school graduation requirements in English, math and social studies. Running the restaurant requires students to purchase, prepare and serve food to local diners throughout the winter and spring, providing them with hands-on experiential learning.

Because capacity is limited and interest is traditionally high, advanced reservations – within one month of the desired restaurant day – are necessary. Reservations will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis once full payment via check is received. Checks should be made payable to Putnam/Northern Westchester BOCES and mailed to The Educated Palate, Culinary Arts/Hospitality Academy, P/NW BOCES, 200 BOCES Drive, Yorktown Heights, NY 10598, attention Tech South Secretary.
