NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. — Café Spice, the pioneering, family-owned brand offering authentic global cuisine with Indian roots, will launch four new grab ‘n’ go meals inspired by classic Indian homestyle fare: Butter Chicken Meatballs, Coconut Chicken Curry and two vegan options – Bombay Dal Palak and Aloo Gobhi Curry in early 2018
Café Spice’s dishes, created by renowned chef Hari Nayak, feature top-quality ingredients free of additives and artificial preservatives, including antibiotic-free chicken, freshly ground spices, rBST-free dairy and non-GMO expeller pressed canola oil. The convenient, heat and eat meals are handcrafted in small batches at Café Spice’s USDA kitchen in New York’s Hudson Valley. The four new products will be available nationwide in early 2018:
