The Divya's Story
In 2009, Chef Divya Alter and her husband, Prentiss, began offering seasonal Ayurvedic cooking classes through their company: Bhagavat Life. In 2015, they expanded their offerings to include America’s first Ayurvedic culinary training program. The classes were overwhelmingly successful, and Ayurveda was growing in popularity in America. The following year, Divya and Prentiss opened Divya’s Kitchen, an Ayurvedic restaurant in the lower east side of Manhattan. The next year, Divya published her bestselling cookbook—What to Eat for How You Feel—and launched Divya’s delicious line of healthy, packaged foods.
