"On Spice" is an approachable look at spices and herbs from a writer who mixed her first seasoning before she was a year old. Caitlin PenzeyMoog grew up in a family spice business, and returns to the fragrant world for an in-depth look at spices, herbs, and salts, with information and history interwoven with memoir and advice. Caitlin joins us to discuss the spices, why she wrote this book, and what readers can expect.

Caitlin PenzeyMoog has a book event Wednesday, August 21 at 7pm at Boswell Book Company, where she will focus on pepper and cinnamon. You can also see her Thursday, August 22 at Books & Company in Oconomowoc at 7pm.
