Episode 15 Guide – Explore the Galilee:

Mike speaks with dear friend Lior Lev Sercarz, co-founder and chief culinary officer of Galilee Culinary Institute, a one-of-a-kind culinary institution that combines culinary and restaurant expertise, tourism and entrepreneurship.  Based in the heart of Israel’s Galilee, a mountainous region and micro-climate where fertile lands, mountains, and rivers create an unparalleled location for a thriving agricultural region, GCI is a total-immersion culinary institution.  Lior is best known for his world-renowned spice blends at his spice shop La Boîte in New York City.
