Charity Tea - Asma Khan's Darjeeling Express

Charity Tea - Asma Khan's Darjeeling Express

Join Asma Khan for high tea and support families who suffer from hunger

When Asma moved to the UK in 1991, she did not even know how to boil an egg. In 1993, Asma traveled back to her ancestral kitchens and, over time, learned recipes that had been in her family for four generations. Asma started Darjeeling Express as a supper club run out of her home, and is now listed as one of the top international supper clubs in London.

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. 

Come along to her Curry for Change afternoon tea for incredible food and the chance to change lives.
