Member news | March 18, 2019
If you’ve had the pleasure of attending a recent FACC event, you may have noticed and sampled the hors d’oeuvres provided by Alhambra Lifestyle.
Recently, we discovered their kitchen in Mamaroneck and spoke with their CEO and Co-Founder, Myriam Spiral, Chef and Co-Founder Saida Desett and Chef Gaelle Lopez.
Alhambra Lifestyle is more than a product, or an experience, it is a voyage of the five senses into a fragrant, rich universe where savors, culture, style and wellness coexist. A departure from the ordinary, the company was founded in New York with a mission to bring the delicacies of Morocco and the Mediterranean to both the private and corporate sectors.
The company has a diverse offering, including catering. The cuisine is different, while at the same time evoking a certain warmth and comfort that can only equate to passion. There are no short-cuts or substitutions. Authenticity is at the heart of everything they do, evidenced by their importation of quality spices and their adherence to traditional preparation methods. Chicken is lovingly marinated for hours, resulting in tender pastillas complimented by a crisp and flaky exterior crust. For sweet treats, their dates combine numerous health benefits with traditional and fusion flavors such as matcha, orange, rose, chocolate and mint and many more flavors in preparation.
Thanks to natural beauty products, healthy and revitalizing when used in traditional Hammam spa rituels, Alhambra proposes a whole universe of well-being, for body, life, beauty, fashion and design.
When it comes to fashion, printed kaftans and light airy fabrics characterize the aesthetic of Alhambra lifestyle’s clothing line. The designs are sophisticated, flowing and delicately finished with ornate trimmings. Alhambra works with talented artisans to propose pieces that are trendy, sustainable and support the local community. The pieces are handcrafted with attention to detail and sure to elevate any wardrobe. Alhambra’s mission is to offer sustainable and eco-responsible products.
In addition to their current activities, including furnishing gift boxes for luxury hotel suites, the company is expanding their offering and working on a direct to consumer e-commerce platform.
We enjoyed going behind the scenes to meet their team and learn more about how their products are prepared. This woman owned and operated startup has incredible potential, magnified by their drive and commitment to bringing a sustainable and luxury lifestyle to New Yorkers.
