ASMA KHAN is the chef and owner of the celebrated Darjeeling Express, in London. She moved from Calcutta to London in 1991 and earned a PhD in British constitutional law at King’s College London before beginning her remarkable food career in 2012 with a supper club in her home. In 2015 she opened a pop-up in a Soho pub, and in 2017 she started the Darjeeling Express. A year later her debut cookbook, Asma’s Indian Kitchen, was published to critical acclaim. Khan is the first British chef to feature in Netflix’s Emmy-nominated Chef’s Table. Her episode received a 2020 James Beard Award nomination, and Business Insider listed her at the top of its “100 Coolest People in Food and Drink.” Her second cookbook, Ammu, will be published in May 2022.
