Cobaya Rancho Patel with Chef Niven Patel 2/11/17

Chef Patel hard at work.  

Cobaya experiment #69 took the guinea pigs on a trek down to Homestead on a beautiful Saturday night.  The dinner was located at Chef Niven Patel's backyard farm where he prepared several courses of farm-to-table Indian cuisine.  It should be noted that he had serious help in the kitchen from his mother and mother-in-law.  
This was a great meal and a very fun night.  

Niven opened his first restaurant this year, Ghee in Downtown Dadeland which specializes in flavorful Indian fare.  He recently opened a second location in the Design District.  I highly recommend paying him a visit.
