Any spice lover would be content if La Boîte just sold chef and master spice blender Lior Lev Sercarz’s spice blends, but he says he must indulge his two loves—biscuits and art—so twice a year he introduces a “collection” of French-style biscuits baked, naturally with a sumptuous assortment of spices.
The Spring/Summer 2017 collection includes Halva and Poppy with tahini from Seed + Mill, poppy seed and Yemen N.10 spice; Honey & Aleppo with Catskill Provisions local honey, walnut and Aleppo pepper; Chickpea & Olive Oil with halva, olive oil and sumac; Pomegranate with pomegranate, black sesame and Israeli chocolate; and Carob with chopped almonds, carob molasses and white chocolate. Each collection is packaged in a specially commissioned tin featuring the artwork that Lior chooses. This season’s tins feature Dan Perez, a renowned Israeli photographer whose work has appeared in some of the finest culinary publications in Israel and around the world.
Dan developed his unique style from his passion for Middle Eastern food and documenting traditional production of food. He works with prominent international food and beverage brands and is a regular contributor to the dining section of Ha’aretz newspaper in Israel.
Perez’s works hang in a gallery setting at La Boîte. Says Lior: “The biscuits change like the seasons and are a unique reflection of what is currently going on outside of our doors. We are thrilled to partner with Perez this season. The tin and his art remain as a happy reminder of a great experiences, both culinary and artistically.”
