Established in 2022. It all started when Chef Gyanendra, popularly known as Chef G, found himself pacing the walls of his home in northeast Calgary during the COVID-19 lockdown. Suddenly, he found lots of time to talk to his family back in Nepal thanks to the social media and video chat technology of today’s digital era. He started re-creating his mom’s recipes with the help of his elder sister, who brought him up after his mom’s passing at a very young age. He started curating a menu that not only serves the most authentic flavours, but also carries symbolism of Nepalese culture. Tara Poudel, wife to Chef G and an expert in banking and finance, laid out the blueprint to bring “Aama Nepalese Cuisine” to life.
 
For the name, they chose Aama Nepalese Cuisine in honor of Chef G’s beloved late mother, where “Aama” means mother. Through their food, they hope to share their story, culture, and values. The three key values they are building at Aama Nepalese Cuisine are reverence, service, and gratitude.
