Asma Khan is owner of Darjeeling Express, London, and one of the UK’s most prominent female chefs.

Asma was the first British chef to appear on Netflix’s Chef’s Table. An unstoppable force for social change in the food industry and beyond, Asma has been revolutionising the London restaurant scene since 2017 with her world-renowned Indian food, all-female team, and her commitment to training immigrant women. Now she joins us for an evening of talking and tasters to celebrate her latest book Ammu: Indian Home-Cooking for the Soul. 

She moved from India to Cambridge in 1991 with her husband. She comes from a royal background – Rajput on her father’s side and Begali on her mother’s. After training as a lawyer, Asma registered for a food business, which began life as a supper club then became a critically acclaimed pop-up, in London, in 2015.

Indian family food with heart.

My Ammu, mother, is the centre of our family. This book is a tribute to the simple home-cooking from her kitchen in Calcutta.

These dishes will bring warmth to your kitchen when you need a quick meal or dish to share with your family and friends.

This is the food I cook for my family every day, meals to comfort, restore and nourish.

I give these recipes to you, with love.
