Ashley is thrilled to welcome Chef & India Bites TV host, Shrimoyee Chakraborty, on the podcast for a Bizzimumzi chat.

Shrimoyee Chakraborty grew up in Jodhpur Park in South Calcutta where her mother taught her to cook at an early age. Relocating to the UK to study for a master’s degree at Manchester Business School, Shrim found herself hosting a mini supper club for her fellow students and setting up a hugely popular blog. Moving to London, Shrim was shocked to find that authentic Calcutta food was almost impossible to find. Determined to redress this, she launched a series of London pop-ups in 2015. The venture was a huge success and Shrim soon left her job at an economic think tank to follow her love of food and cooking full-time. She opened her first restaurant, Calcutta Street, in Fitzrovia in July 2016. Calcutta Street Brixton opened in June 2017.

Known for bringing authentic Bengali cuisine to London, Shrim has been featured in publications from the Independent to the Financial Times, the Telegraph and Grazia, and Calcutta Street has been lauded by globally-recognised food critics.

On today’s Bizzimumzi Episode Ashley & Shrim chat about:

  • The mutual love of India and traveling all around.
  • The journey of a 1st time mom and still working.
  • The importance of splashing fun into the days when things get too stressful.
  • Chatting all things Santa even in the month of May.
  • Shrim’s cooking journey and her relationship with her Mom.
  • Reflecting back to when they were naughty kids.
  • The inspiration behind Shrim’s supper clubs.
  • Raising a daughter as a thriving Entrepreneur.
  • Traveling with the little ones.
  • Really learning about your personal strength after having a child.
  • Learning from the little ones to navigate the days.
  • Passing words of wisdom to expecting Bizzimumzi’s.
