When Bee’s parents arrived into England from the Punjab, they settled into Southall in West London. They brought with them a treasure of cultural heritage, including Punjabi cuisine. Bee’s cooking is a loving culmination of her parents nurturing and teaching, her inquisitive nature coupled with a lifetime of non-Indian influences and experiences from being born and bred in the UK. So, although she may cut her vegetables with Japanese knives and sometimes cook meat in her Le Creuset pans, the thought process is still the same as that of her ancestors – getting a hearty and nutritional fresh home-cooked meal on the table.

During the Covid lockdowns, Bee set up a free private Authentic PunjaBee Cooking Group on Facebook with over 700 members, teaching them to cook Punjabi dishes the authentic way from ‘scratch’.  She also has an Instagram following of over 27k followers.
