La Perla and Bunche Internships
The Bunche Internship Team met with Chef Jose Ortiz of La Perla Restaurant (2020 MacArthur Blvd. Oakland, Ca 94602) and are excited to engage in a new partnership. La Perla focuses on the amazing cuisine of Puerto Rico, and a few of our culinary student interns will have an opportunity to work with him to learn how to make everything from Pollo Encebollado to Carne Guisada. Chef Jose loves and cares for Oakland and by partnering with our school he will afford many students new opportunities for the youth of Oakland. Thanks Mr. Alvarado, for facilitating this partnership, and thanks to Chef David, Mr. Williams, and Ms. Greenland for cultivating it.
