FEED YOUR SOUL WITH ASMA KHAN’S COLLECTION OF AUTHENTIC INDIAN RECIPES ASMA KHAN STARS IN NETFLIX’S AWARD-WINNING SERIES CHEF’S TABLE
Award-winning restaurant Darjeeling Express began as a dinner party with friends; Indian food lovingly cooked from family recipes that go back generations. The recipes pay homage to Asma Khan’s royal Mughlai ancestry and follow the route of the Darjeeling Express train from the streets of Bengal, through Calcutta, where she grew up, and along the foothills of the Himalayas to Hyderabad.
Platters of dishes boasting texture and intense flavor encourage you to gather for a traditional dawaat (feast). There are Feasts for Two, Family Feasts, Feasts for Friends, and Celebratory Feasts. Many of the recipes are vegetarian, there are sweet treats and drinks, too.
This is more than just a collection of delicious and accessible recipes, it is a celebration of heritage, culture, community, and quality. This is Asma’s Indian Kitchen.
ASMA KHAN is chef and restaurateur of London’s acclaimed Darjeeling Express, which began as a supper club, then a pop-up, before settling in its permanent location to wide acclaim. It has been featured in Time Out, Harper’s Bazaar, the Guardian, and numerous others. In 2015, it was named as one of the best restaurants in London by the Evening Standard.
“[A] celebration of heritage and culture that makes a feast out of every meal.” —Woman & Home magazine
