Episode 59 - Asma Khan

Mar 11, 2022, 12:00 AM

Asma Khan is one of the UK's most prominent female chefs and an unstoppable force for social change in the food industry. 

We discuss her life before coming to the UK and why she felt the need to explore her identity and culture through her cooking.

The process of going from having dinner clubs at home to opening a restaurant at the most prestigious sites in London was full of many challenges - but nothing that Asma couldn’t take on.

As well as creating a place for Indian food, Asma has made Darjeeling Express into much more than a restaurant. It’s a platform for social change – a place where every woman is celebrated and empowered.
