Kavita Shukla, Inventor, Fenugreen

Kavita holds four patents for a world changing invention that does one simple thing: extend the life of produce. After a trip to visit her grandmother in her native India, she developed a recipe for a paper that would stop the spoilage of food. Her work is revolutionizing the world's food supply especially in the poorest pockets of the globe. Kavita takes us to Great Sage restaurant in Clarksville, Maryland just minutes from where she grew up in Maryland. The perfectly seasoned Spinach curry is a reminder of who she is and where she came from. We feast on her favorite dishes and talk about how this invention is just the beginning of growing a world changing empire.
