Day 386

Big day in Business Ethics: the first day of our 10-minute presentations on various ethical dilemmas drawn from current affairs. Each one generated some discussion, but the one that had the class going was this: You buy a stack of beer for a house party, but it all doesn’t get consumed. The next morning, knowing you can’t possibly drink all of it, do you pour the excess down the drain, or do you give it to the university students living next door, knowing they will probably consume it to excess?

In Sensory Evaluation, we bid adieu to Chef Olson, as it was the end of his 4-week tenure with us. But not before we learned about stews. Stews are a great dish for a brewpub in the fall and winter, because they use cheap cuts of meat that are then braised and simmered to tenderize them. Mmmm… tasty and profitable. And of course, with the three stews we tried, there was also some beer to pair to them.

Next week we move on to another segment of the course: wine and spirits. Dang. (No, that didn’t really work. I’ll try it with a straight face this time, and shake my fist at the heavens.) Dang!!
