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

Every few months, the Pinch Kitchen team hosts a collaboration dinner with some of South Florida’s culinary giants. On January 30, the fifth installment of the Craft Collab series featured Chef Niven Patel of Ghee Indian Kitchen, which is set to open in Downtown Dadeland later this year.
