Asha's Manchester

Main Menu

I had a magical childhood, moving from town to town with my father’s travelling theatre company. “The Company” would always sit down to a meal together after a performance, with my father at the head of the table. I used to love roaming around the kitchen among the enormous cauldrons of steaming food, but more than anything, I enjoyed seeing the joy on the diners’ faces as they savoured the tasty delights. This is where my love of cooking began.

Over the years I pursued both my musical and culinary interests and became fascinated with the regional diversity of Indian food. Inspired by a land so rich in culture and influenced by the great chefs that I have met over the years, I hope that you enjoy sharing in my personal journey and the lovingly prepared recipes presented in this menu.
