2013w Project Theme: Traditional Foods

The theme for this year's project is traditional foods, long-established foods.

Some obvious traditional foods may include bread, wine, kimchi (in Korean culture), carbonated beverages (in American culture), and soy products (in Asian culture). Feel free to explore many other options. If your team really prefer to work on a non-traditional food, just discuss your options with me.

Project Ideas

I strongly encourage you and your team mates to work on a food that you all like. It's already challenging to work with a group of strangers (for an elective course for most of you). It is my sincere hope that you will each get something out of this project; working on a food that you are all curious about is a way to engage you all.

eBooks Inspirations

If you are having trouble identifying a good topic, you may want to browse through these eBooks available through UBC Library. Even just looking at the titles of these ebooks may give you some good ideas.
