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.
