Sohini Banerjee, South London Louie’s current chef in residence, started her culinary journey back in 2016, balancing work as a prep chef at Cinnamon Kitchen with her masters in Health Economics. Her journey so far has seen her cross paths with chef Asma Khan of Darjeeling Express, chef Helen Graham of Bubala and Michelin-starred chef Rohit Ghai, formerly of Jamavar.

Sohini’s food takes influence from the culinary traditions of her ancestors, with its roots in Kolkata, West Bengal. She endeavours to bring a style of Indian cuisine that is relatively unknown to the Western palate, but steeped in its own unique traditions and techniques.

Not satisfied with serving simple Bengali staples, Sohini’s food always carries a stamp of her own personality and experiences of growing up in the UK. Her pantry welcomes ingredients from across the world, which work together to enhance the depth of flavour of her own particular brand of “Bangali Khabar” (Bengali food).

She has been serving hungry diners at her Smoke & Lime supperclubs for nearly 6 years, and her food is unmistakably true to her own identity, as a person and as a chef.
