About Us

We believe that many of life's warmest memories are created in the kitchen and around the dinner table. With this in mind, each item in our shop is carefully selected with a discerning eye for quality, style and function, with the hopes of inspiring home cooking and the gathering of friends and family. 

Established in 2012, by husband and wife team, Kyle and Jenny Otsuka, Zest Kitchen Shop is dedicated to people who love to cook. On our shelves, you'll find products from well-known brands as well as talented local artisans. We carry everything you need for your next adventure in the kitchen, from cooking tools, cookware and knives as well as tableware, linens and glassware and everything in between!

You can also peruse our shelves for unique gift ideas, including many Canadian-made items such as wooden cutting boards and bowls, and locally made items such as jams and jellies, bitters & tonics, hot sauces, marinades and much more!

And we can make your knives feel like new again with our in-house professional knife sharpening service.

We strive every day to deliver excellent customer service, and to provide knowledgeable and objective advice. Looking for something specific? Have a question? Don't hesitate to ask!
