AN INVITATION TO CHEF SHENNY’S CHINESE HOME KITCHEN
Open 7 days a week
Description

Chinese home cooking can arguably be considered a different cuisine in its own right, and tends to be much healthier than the Western interpretation of Chinese food. Most dishes are braised, steamed or wok-fried, and the focus is on using fresh produce bought on the day.

Traditional Chinese Medicine also plays an important role in everyday home cooking. Wisdom passed from generation to generation dictates what foods to eat, when to eat it and how to cook it. These beliefs may vary from region to region and household to household, but meals are generally well balanced between meat, vegetables and grains, and utilise dried, pickled or preserved ingredients such as herbs and spices to add flavour, texture, colour and aroma.

This experience is an invitation to Chef Shenny’s childhood home (metaphorically!). Start with a light after school snack with the kids first, before taking a seat in the dining room for a home-cooked feast.

About the HOMEtainer

I am a self-taught and passionate chef specialising in Asian cookery and bakery, born in UK with Hong Kong roots. Always my happiest self when in a kitchen, I started cooking as a hobby from a very young age - my first signature dish being an apple pizza from my first cookbook aged 7! After 8+ years working in finance in London and Hong Kong, the pandemic opened a door to turn my passion into a profession when I started a home-based Oriental takeaway and catering business. I now continue to serve authentic Chinese food to local customers, do private catering across London, and teach Chinese cooking classes at an award-winning cookery school. My personal mission is to share the authentic flavours, ingredients, techniques and health benefits of traditional Chinese cuisine with others, whilst being able to help create joy, connection and new experiences through good food and company. 大家食飯!
