An exploration of the range of foam making techniques. Starting with the molecular structural connections that determine the texture and lifespan of simple gas in liquid suspensions and examining the differing techniques to augment and extend key individual variables, we'll cover foams ranging from the bubbles atop a Daiquiri to beer foam, egg foam, cream foams, vegan and vegetarian foams. We'll also explore texture adding chemicals and the aerating/incorporation techniques used to achieve each of the above. We will leave no bubble un-popped.

Presenter
Angela Koon, Alteristic

Bystander intervention plays a key role in any comprehensive strategy to permanently reduce rates of sexual assault, domestic violence, harassment, bullying, and other forms of interpersonal violence and empowers all members of a given community to intersect with this issue as part of the solution. Green Dot workshops are focused on equipping bartenders, bar staff, managers, and bar owners to (1) respond when they notice behaviors that could lead to or constitute sexual assault and harassment in their bars, and (2) engage in behaviors that establish a climate of dignity and respect.
THIS SESSION IS MANDATORY FOR APPLIED SCIENCE AND BAR MANAGEMENT & LEADERSHIP STUDENTS THAT DO NOT HAVE A GREEN DOT CERTIFICATE.
