Explore the flavours of regional vegetarian dishes from around India, and learn how to recreate them yourself at home. Celebrate freedom on Indian Independence Day with a unique culinary experience hosted by Asma Khan.

Build your confidence in the kitchen and put new skills into practise at this very special, one-off cooking class in support of Curry for Change.


When Asma moved to the UK in 1991, she did not even know how to boil an egg. In 1993, Asma travelled back to her ancestral kitchens and, over time, learned recipes that had been in her family for four generations. 

Asma's ancestry stems from the royal Mughlai and Nawabi school of cuisine. In addition to her Mughlai roots from her father's side, Asma cooks the food of Calcutta, the city where she was born and raised.

The result is a lovely mélange of street food like papri chaat and royal recipes like lamb dum biryani that take you on a journey from Calcutta in the east of India to Hyderabad in the south. 

Asma's supper clubs have been listed as one of the five most authentic places in London to eat Indian food and as one of the top international supper clubs in London


School of Wok, set up by the young and talented chef Jeremy Pang, is Europe's only award winning Asian & Oriental cookery school. Located in London's Covent Garden, it provides engaging and exciting hands-on cookery classes to the public.
