Food for thought

Every year, my colleague and I run an eight-week program, introducing extraordinarily bright undergraduates to the joys of research. Since the students are here in town for two major US holidays, we have a get-together, on July 4th at my house, and on Memorial Day at his place. This was our eighth annual Memorial Day gathering: a very pleasant time had by all --- I hope --- and much food consumed. For my contribution, I went with Euro-themes: two focaccia (rosemary and onion respectively), roulade au chocolat, and sausage rolls.
The students have all formed into groups now, and with luck, the food will inspire them to think deeply on their respective topics.

Yours, expecting great things,
