Retirement present from my students

Several of the students in my applied analog electronics course got together to get me a retirement present, which was very sweet of them.  They gave me two “foodie” books: The Bread Baker’s Apprentice by Peter Reinhart and Renaissance Recipes by Gillian Riley.  A dozen of the students wrote notes on the end papers of The Bread Baker’s Apprentice. It was a very sweet and thoughtful present. Somewhat surprisingly, my wife and I did not own either of these two books in our collection of about 140 cookbooks (which include over a dozen renaissance cookbooks and at least nine books on baking bread).

The students also gave me an apron with silk screening: 

The Man   The Myth




I suppose I should pick one of the recipes (oops—formulæ) from The Bread Baker’s Apprentice for the next bread-and-tea event.


  1. Really nice apron. My retirement (if there will be any in the future, because labor/retirement gets pushed out more and more) is still many years away. Enjoy your new phase of life!

    • Technically, my retirement is not until July 1. I “separate from service” on June 28th or 29th and enter retirement a few days later on July 1.
