About

hello, ٱلسَّلَامُعَلَيْكُمْ, kia ora, வணக்கம்

My name is Shehnaz Hussain a.k.a @shehnazzy_cooks and I like to consider myself a chef, recipe-developer and food photographer (on my very professional iPhone, of course)! And I have created my very first cookbook ‘Tang, Spice, Crunch’, which has been a long-time coming project of mine that has finally come into fruition.  

The general rhythm I got into whilst creating this book was dream (yes, as in whilst sleeping), make, feed (to family and friends), write, and edit. This book was created with the main goal of helping those who are in need of our help. All profits from ‘Tang, Spice, Crunch’ will be going to an orphanage in சென்னை (Chennai), India that is very close to my heart, whom myself and my family have been supporting and visiting for over 20 years now.

I hope to see you with this book in your hands and creating the recipes I dreamt of, all while knowing that your purchase is going to help those in need.
