Personal Notes:
My great grandfather Isador was a baker and claims to have brought rye bread to the US Navy when he moved his family from Brooklyn to Los Angeles in 1915. I can't vouch for that story, but I can vouch for his mandelbrot. These are best served with a good cup of coffee and a newspaper.
