Midterm: Design a card (flashcard or half of print paper) focusing on fermentation!
Recipe, drawing, menu, infographic, etc. - be creative! :)
We will collect these cards and, at the end of the semester, create a Google Drive to share it with the class.

THIS WEEK’S TOPIC: Bread! In addition to Vicky’s short presentation, we’re so glad to be having Josey Baker come and talk about his amazing story and iconic sourdough breads. Josey mills his wholegrain flour fresh everyday and uses a starter that has been passed on for generations. You can read more about him and drool over pictures of bread here and here!

***If you sign up for a field trip but do not show up it will count as an absence. If you have a very good reason for not being able to make it, please notify us at least one week before so we can inform the host. The host works hard to accommodate a large group like ours, so let’s be courteous and respectful to them as well. :) Remember that you are allowed a total of 2 absences to pass the class.***
Can’t wait to see you all this Wednesday, 3/16!
Agnes, Hailey, and Vicky
