Lior Lev Sercarz is the chef, spice blender and owner of La Boîte Biscuits and Spices in New York City. He spent his early career traveling and cooking around the world working with some of the world’s best chefs. Inspired by his passion for spices and the story they tell, Lior began creating his own spice blends. Each blend is a reflection of a place, moment or cultural influence. Using only the best spices from around the world, the spice blends from La Boîte are fresh, aromatic and full of powerful flavors.
Lior has been recognized by Bon Appetit as one of the “Tastemakers of 2012”. His spices have also found their way into many notable restaurant kitchens but were created for chefs of all cooking levels. La Boîte sells over 40 blends of spices in their spice shop & art gallery in New York City’s Hell's Kitchen.
I met Lior over 10 years ago in the kitchen at Restaurant Daniel where we were both working. We remained in touch as our careers took us different places. It has been amazing to see Lior grow La Boîte into the company it is today. Lior is very creative and inspiring and I am proud to call him a friend and honored to have his spices as part of this site.
