A Taste of Home
We welcome you to Shenny’s Kitchen. While there are many reasons why you might miss home, we’ll make sure food is not one of them. Shenny’s Kitchen presents you with a fusion of East African and Indian tastes and delights. Through our food we tell the story of our passion and our love for our culture and heritage. We love what we do, and we welcome you along for the ride.
Welcome To Shenny's
Shenaaz (Shenny) and her family migrated to Canada from Tanzania, East Africa in 2013. Shenny was born and raised in Tanzania, and her roots come through in her cooking. She operated a catering business back home, where, over the years she honed her culinary skills and delivered savory dishes weaving East Indian and East African tastes, cuisines, and cultures seamlessly into just the perfect union.
Shenny first started with baking cakes and pastries for holidays and special occasions but soon found her niche in discovering and recreating dishes that were new to the Tanzania palette and giving them her own unique twist. When the family went to restaurants for dinner, and if Shenny was presented with a dish unknown to her she wouldn’t hesitate to dissect the dish and a knack for recognizing flavors of different spices. That is how her famous “Chicken Pita” was born.
In Calgary, her home is affectionately called the ‘headquarters’ by her kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, and extended family. Due to their busy schedules, the working adults in the family rely on Shenny’s weekly home-cooked meals. After work, we drive by and pick up our specials packed up with all the care and comfort of home. It’s our favorite part of the day. Our family is constantly fighting the Tupperware war, but her home-cooked meals are worth all the Tupperware drama and we are a very lucky bunch.
Through Shenny’s Kitchen, we are now sharing Shenaaz’s famous dishes with the rest of Calgary. We hope you enjoy the menu as much as we have over the years.
