Holidays dominate the fall and winter calendar in our part of the world. Ring in the season with
the Lloyd Library’s newest exhibition. From desserts and candy, to soups, stews, dressings and
casseroles, we give and prepare many holiday favorites only once a year. This exhibition focuses
on botanical images and traditional uses of chocolate, nuts, herbs and spices, the main ingredients
of the flavors and aromas of the season. Incorporating fruits and root vegetables with dried herbs
and spices enhances many of our favorite winter desserts, soups and stews. These ingredients
have become part of cultural and family traditions that make this time of year so special.
The exhibit runs December 7 through March 16.
