Dosa Kitchen is the culinary collaboration of Nash Patel, who grew up eating dosas in Hyderabad, India, and New York cookbook author Leda Scheintaub. The two met in a South Indian restaurant in NYC where Nash was waiting tables. Nash offered advice on what to eat and how to eat it, and a spark ignited. Nash brought tea leaves, ginger, and cardamom to their first date, and over a lesson in chai-making their future together was sealed. Soon after the couple moved to Vermont, where they launched Dosa Kitchen food truck to share their love for the dosa and passion for local food. When their food truck started bringing destination diners from New York to Boston, they knew they were onto something.
