Lorna Nanda Gangotra is one third of The Gangotra Sisters, winners of the BBC2's ‘The Big Family Cooking Showdown 2017’.
Lorna founded The Little Indian Kitchen in 2009, following the decision to give up her corporate career and take the plunge into the world of food.
Originally located in Wimbledon, the kitchen hosted regular cookery classes during the week and it served as a local bistro on the weekends.
After a couple of successful years, Lorna closed the kitchen to start a family and move to Surrey. She spent the next year raising her children before a chance encounter with a friend led her to discover Ripley Farmer's Market. It was there that she resurrected The Little Indian Kitchen by taking part in the monthly markets.
Lorna attends a number of food festivals across the country, including the BBC Good Food Show Live. In addition, Lorna continues to offer tailor made cookery classes at people's homes and event catering, and she attends both Ripley and Kew Village Farmers’ Market monthly.
Her inaugural supper club at the prestigious Darjeeling Express in central London was a sell-out. New to this year's Woking Food and Drink Festival, Lorna will be hosting a pop up supper club at the event on its opening night. (Tickets will go on sale closer to the event.)
