Pinch Craft Collab 6.0 Dinner: A Look Back

Last month, we partnered with the team behind Pinch Kitchen to create a Kansas City-style dish for National Grilling Month. The result: spatchcock chicken, mac and cheese, and coleslaw.

Pinch Kitchen and Ghee Indian Kitchen Team Up for the 5th Edition of Craft Collab

The family-style affair served as a sneak peek of Chef Patel’s new eatery and put three of Miami’s top chefs under one roof. Together with Chef Patel, Pinch’s John Gallo and Rene Reyes cooked up a multi-course masterpiece of a menu that left us even more excited for Ghee Indian Kitchen and the future of this dinner series.
