Recently I joined spice expert and chef Lior Lev Sercarz to learn more about his new book, Mastering Spice. Not only does he create his own spice blends, but is the owner of La Boite in Manhattan.

I joined NYWCA, the New York Women’s Culinary Alliance, for a fantastic night at Artisic Tile’s Flatiron showroom, which showcased his approach to spices with a cooking demo and a Q & A with the audience.

Some highlights were the tasty treats from sponsors such as Le Bon Magot, which had condiments and preserves, a variety of Balthazar Bakery Bread, Firefly Farm Creamery, Beehive Cheeses, artisan honey from Mario Bianco, as well as  gorgeous and delicious Brooklyn Born Chocolate.
