Hey fellow fermenters!

Yummm to everyone who shared their food stories this week -- ketchup, tea, Colombian fruits and pizza! If you have yet to present, you can view your presentation dates here. We’ve just added a field trip to the Cultured Pickle Shop (4/20 from 6-7PM). Make sure to sign-up for field trips -- more info below!

If you want to revisit last week’s newsletter, check it out on our blog!

  • Recap:

    • Student cultural food presentations

    • Cindy’s Beer, Wine, Sake presentation

    • 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.

***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!
