Well, to be honest, Anne Burrell has nothing to do with CIM, but she is tied to EDD! This could be just a another brush with greatness for me… or not. Read on!
What do you give you wife for Christmas? There isn’t much better than a signed cookbook from one of her favorite chefs. On the Wednesday before Christmas, a local grocery store had a book signing with Anne Burrell
; one of the Food Network’s famous chefs.
So to make a long story short, I bought the book at Amazon, then stood in line for a couple of hours (grocery shopped too!), and viola! Instant Christmas present! My Wife and I also have seen her live at Dave’s Diner in Cazenovia
where she did a fund raiser and showed 100 people how to make her famous Wild Mushroom Risotto
So, Why am I talking about her here? Well, her father, Steve Burrell, lives in Cazenovia, and
he has been hanging around my classroom for six years now. As a retired engineer, he spends just about everyday in my EDD class, helping out my students, and providing a real world experience from the perspective of an engineer. He is joined by two other former Engineer’s: Don Stehle and Hume Laidman. Special thanks to all three of you!
Yes. that’s right. I have three engineers in my EDD Classroom almost everyday. Do you? Why Not?!?
Merry Christmas to all!
