When Asma moved to the UK in 1991, she did not even know how to boil an egg. In 1993, she traveled back to her ancestral kitchens and, over time, learned recipes that had been in her family for four generations. After finishing her doctorate in British constitutional law in 2012, Asma decided to follow her heart and open a food business. Asma started Darjeeling Express as a supper club run out of her home and you can now find Asma doing supper clubs in various locations around London.
Her book, Darjeeling Express, is published later in 2018.
