Join us for a conversation with Suresh Pillai and Carrie Dashow, the married co-founders of Atina Foods. They adapt traditional Ayurvedic recipes to incorporate global and locally available produce for their unusually delicious, fermented, and preserved condiments that help to balance your health and life. Based in Catskill, New York, Atina Foods' handcrafted condiments add flavor complexity in a simple spoonful to home-cooked plates throughout New York and beyond! 

Atina Foods Expands upon and evolves recipes from Suresh's traditional upbringing in Kerala, South India, the ancestral home of Ayurvedic health practices. Kerala is a place where one considers food as medicine and eating for health is a widely practiced custom. The vision of Atina Foods is to produce and share holistic food based on traditional knowledge systems using local produce when available, following the sacred wisdom of the ancients; that food is medicine and medicine is food.
