The bold, witty, talented and unstoppable Asma Khan of the famous Darjeeling Express comes to Bath to celebrate her soulful new book, Asma’s Indian Kitchen. Following the route of the Darjeeling Express train from Bengal, through Calcutta, where she grew up, and along the foothills of the Himalayas to Hyderabad, these are authentic Indian recipes to feed the soul, richly evocative of the traditional dawaat (feast).
Her award-winning restaurant Darjeeling Express began life as a dinner party with friends; Indian food lovingly cooked from family recipes that go back generations. Her life and cooking experience are distilled in this book, and she shows us how to bring life and flavour to our midweek cooking with her simple Feasts for Two, or lovingly cooked food for celebrations for family and friends. But this is more than just a collection of delicious and accessible recipes, it is a celebration of heritage, culture, community and quality.
Asma was recently voted Female Entrepreneur of the Year , as well as Entrepreneur of the Year at the Asian Women of the Year Awards.
