Hey there! I’m Irshana!!

And Shana's Kitchen is my little corner of the internet!

I'm Irshana former Business Studies teacher for G.C.E. Ordinary Level, now full time blogger. My husband Rifdhi and I are Sri Lankan and we live in The Netherlands. Favorite things include my phone, laptop, shopping days, and chocolate.

I’m the voice, author, and creator behind Shana's Kitchen. What started as a casual hobby for nights and weekends has now grown into a blog that reaches thousands of people with fun recipes each month.

I live in The Hague, with my husband Rifdhi and baby Reyah. My favorite things in life are a big plate of Sri Lankan rice & curry, sunny days, and going somewhere I have never been to.

In this space, I am always sharing fresh, flavorful, mostly Sri Lankan recipes that I love to make and eat in my real, actual, every day life. If I wouldn’t eat it in real life, I won’t put in on the blog. My goal is to inspire you with food that is both approachable AND exciting, whether you’re cooking for yourself, your family, your roommates, or your friends. I want you to be so excited about these recipes that you eagerly await 5 pm when you can go home from work and start cooking.

On a related note, I absolutely LOVE seeing the food that you’re making. It will make my day if you tag @shanaskitchenrecipes in your Instagram photos and stories!


Along with all the recipes, I also use the blog to share bits and pieces of my life outside the kitchen – from photos of my favorite trips, to reflections on grief and loss, to life as a mom.

Travel: From living in the Netherlands, to the ultimate European adventure, to pizza in Italy! Oh my gosh, I love to travel. Check it all out here.

My Husband: My husband is a software Engineer and he is the Tech-savvy behind my blog.

Motherhood: In November 2019, we welcomed our baby girl Reyah into the world.
