Inspirational Chef and restaurateur Asma Khan will be visiting London South East Colleges’ BR6 Restaurant in Orpington on Wednesday 24 April to support students with a special fundraising event.
Asma features on the Netflix show ‘Chef's Table’ - the only British chef ever to do so - and is author of brilliant best-selling cookery book ‘Asma’s Indian Kitchen’.
Guests attending the special event will get the opportunity to sample a range of exciting dishes from Asma’s book. The food will be prepared and served by the College’s Hospitality and Catering students with direction from Asma herself and our Chef Trainer Swarup Roy.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to two charities - The Maypole Project and the Dorothy House Hospice. These are the chosen charities of two staff members, who will be running the London Marathon on 28 April.
Asma, who moved to Cambridge from Calcutta in 1991 is passionate about food and opened her restaurant – the Darjeeling Express – in London’s Soho in 2017. She says:
“I am delighted to support the future generation of young chefs from all backgrounds and for such worthwhile causes. I have always loved food and started my restaurant business at home, cooking family recipes for just 12 guests – which shows that anything is possible!
“I am keen to share my passion and help inspire young people to create beautiful dishes, which nourish the body and soul, as well as bringing communities together”
Head of London South East Colleges’ Hospitality, Food and Enterprise Career College, Tania Sumner, says:
“We are so excited to be hosting such a unique event and extremely grateful to Asma for giving up her time to support our students.
“This will be a fantastic opportunity for our students to gain experience of preparing and cooking Indian food under the guidance of a real expert. It will be a wonderful evening for guests too, who will get to sample a wide range of delicious dishes – all in aid of two worthwhile charities we do hope you will join us for this exciting event.”
