The Grand Truck Road Supperclub

The Grand Trunk Road Supperclub was a six course meal traversing the ancient trade route of South Asia. The menu was a celebration of how food and culture evolve through the movement of people and shape our dinner tables. Held in Brixton, the heart of multicultural London, the dinner reflected how our heritage extends beyond a fixed place, where customs intermingle through the exchange of food. Food and travel journalist, Rida Bilgrami, guided the meal with a historical narrative between courses. Salma Siddiqui (my fabulous mama!) read an excerpt from her book, The Migrants, about our family's experience of travelling across the Grand Trunk Road during the India-Pakistan Partition in 1947.
