As a relatively "new" edition to the Baldwin Boettcher family, I take pride in my work with the teenage and pre-teen patrons.

Dance of SpicesThese are some of the well-known spices used in Indian cooking, but there are many more that may not easily bring to mind a familiar scent or flavor. India has a long and rich tradition of delicious food, well-known for its variation and complexity. We invite you to sample some recipes selected from the Indian cookbooks in the HCPL collection at A Taste of India, on Tuesday, May 25, at 5 PM.
