Week 8 – Winter
INDEPENDENT WORK WEEK
WEEK 8 is designed to allow students time to work on video editing (Oyster Tasting AND 2-3 minute Chocolate + _____ : Paired Tasting of Terroir), creating Tea and Oyster case study webpages, planning final presentations, drafting self evaluations, and crafting a draft in-program ILC of spring quarter independent projects.
Read this Terroir_Spring_Schedule to help think about the spring quarter schedule, the Permaculture Design Course, and how it fits into your planning.
WE WILL NOT MEET AS A CLASS DURING WEEK 8 HOWEVER THE FOLLOWING ACTIVITIES ARE STILL REQUIRED.

Umami Tasting Lab: To be completed with your Terroir peer group or groupings of co-tasters at time and place of your choice during week 8. Experiment with the taste of umami and then describe to each other the results of at least two of the five classic umami pairings discussed by Stuckey on page 255.
