We’ve quietly been creating private dining events upon request and now we’re offering this service publicly.

We’d love to come to your home and co-create a meal with you for you and your guests. If you’ve been to a pop-up you’re familiar with the classic-for-a-reason food-with-beverage-pairings format; we’ve also facilitated an authentic relating dinner (yay Boulder!) and in addition to a few holiday dinners, we’ll be leading interactive food skills-building at a local company’s holiday party in three weeks.

The ambiance of the event was beautiful and inviting, lending well to connecting with family over a fantastic meal. Six months later, our family members still mention what a wonderful evening this was…When I feel inclined to treat myself to a special event, Blank Plate’s pop-up cafés are the first things that come to mind. This is absolutely worth trying for anyone who enjoys a unique dining experience with an emphasis on excellent food, community, and authentic connection over a shared meal.

A Blank Plate Boulder event is always a special occasion. The settings are stunning, and L.R. and his team craft multicourse culinary experiences that leave me with a full belly, a full heart, and always better educated about food and libation. Case in point- the fermented dinner. I imagined pickles, kimchee and possibly miso this or that, but what happened was at least 5 courses of unbridled creativity that I will not soon forget. Every course had a pairing and there was only one pickle the entire evening as a bite before being seated. It was a memorable night with great people, I can’t wait for the next one.
