Drexel’s Food Lab Gets Spicy with New Collaboration

 

St. Lucifer Foods Co. LLC. headed by two Philadelphia-based culinary entrepreneurs, created their company’s first spice blend with a broad goal to make anything it seasoned, taste better. Creators Ted Ebert and Tom Hewell aimed to portray ‘The Glory of Hot’ – and their masterful blend of garlic, salt, vinegar and fiery habanero peppers, achieved just that. But, as a single spice blend, getting adequate space on the grocery shelves became a problem. To build out their spice family, they turned to students in The Drexel Food Lab and Drexel University’s Center for Hospitality and Sport Management to turn up the imagination, testing and creation process of their second spice blend.
