About Chef Lior
After completing three years in the Israeli army, Chef Lior traveled across South America to further his passion for world cuisine. Lior completed an externship with Michelin-star chef Olivier Roellinger in Cancale, France where he displayed a rare, nuanced understanding of spice blends, oils and pastes, eventually landing him the honor of working with chef Daniel Boulud at his flagship restaurant, Daniel, in New York City.
Inspired by spices and the stories they can tell, Chef Lior opened his first restaurant, La Boite Biscuits & Spices, in Hell's Kitchen in 2011. Now, 12 years and 3 books later, Chef Lior is sharing his passion for world cuisine and sensational spice blends with Sarasota-Manatee! Join us at Michael's On East on Wednesday, March 1 at 5:30pm for this one-of-a-kind event and experience the scents and flavors of Israel.
