The traditional Calcutta style Dum Biryani is Asma's most treasured recipe. This gorgeous dish has been perfected and handed down to her by family cooks. For generations, the Biryani has been the centrepiece of celebratory meals and family gatherings. "The first time I witnessed the 'unveiling' of the Biryani, it was the night of my sister's wedding. I was absolutely mesmerised- the floral saffron-infused aromas that rose from the pot as the rice was gently mixed is something I will remember forever."

For the first time in Covent Garden, Asma is hosting her highly sought-after Biryani supperclub at Darjeeling Express! Some of you may have caught a glimpse of this festive occasion during Asma's Netflix Chefs Table episode. The Biryani will be unveiled in the dining room in front of guests and served in the traditional "dawaat" style where everyone will be served at the same time. 

To finish, you will receive a trio of desserts - the Royal Hyderabadi Khoobani ka Meetha and Gajjar ka Halwa that were taught to Asma by her family cook, Haji Saheb and a traditional Bengali dessert, Bhapa Doi - a sweet and creamy homemade yoghurt. Following this lovely trio, you will be served a warming masala chai.

Unfortunately in this instance, we will not be able to accommodate dietary restrictions although vegetarian alternatives will be available - the menu is fixed.
