Abstract: For my capstone I had to create a menu based around a theme, my theme was Umami. Umami is the fifth and mainly forgotten sense of taste. With My capstone menu I utilized the two main way of achieving umami by using ingredients that are naturally high in umami and combining the other four senses of taste salt, sour, sweet, and bitter to create umami. My menu had to be three courses and have two items per course, My first courses were a kale and radicchio salad with a lemon vinaigrette with winter vegetable croutons, the other option was was a mushroom soup. My second course options were a beef tenderloin with braised ox tails, blue cheese compound butter and a demiglace, the other option was a glazed tofu served with jasmine rice, edamame, and sauteed shitake mushrooms. My third course options were an aged chaddar cheese plate with saffron crackers and cranberry chutney, my other third course option was a sea salt ice-cream with a lemon tart and caramel sauce.

A Taste of Tea

Thu, 11/30/2017 - 14:49
Abstract: Originating in Southeast China, tea is one of the most consumed beverages in the world, second only to water with coffee in third. Though tea has many names, they all come from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. There’s white, yellow, green, oolong, pu-erh, and black or red tea; each has its own variants and processing methods to distinguish them. Tea has spread throughout the world and each culture took these leaves and made it their own in different ways. The journey it has taken is an interesting one with a lot of controversy, conflict, and corruption once introduced to the British Empire.
