Local food, for local people. Made in Brooklyn, New York City.
Local food for local people.
Arthur Street Kitchen is a community kitchen established in 2011 in Surry Hills, Sydney by home cook Hetty McKinnon. The concept is simple: local food for local people. From her inner city terrace kitchen, Hetty dreamed up and cooked flavour-packed, hearty, seasonal salads which she delivered to locals on her bicycle.
While our menus are inspired first and foremost by the seasons, Arthur Street Kitchen also take cues from what we see, smell and experience from the world around us. At the heart of every dish is a core vegetable, around which a thoughtful culinary story is built, resulting in honest, inventive, hearty salads that deliver big, punchy flavours.
Arthur Street Kitchen is based in Brooklyn, New York City.
Hetty McKinnon, Owner and Author
Hetty is a home cook with a passion for vegetables. In 2011, she turned this obsession, along with her love for sharing food, into Arthur Street Kitchen, a local business where she could do what she loved most: to feed people.
Hetty has been vegetarian for over twenty years, but doesn't develop recipes for just for vegetarians. Her plant-based recipes are truly egalitarian, for every person who enjoys a flavour-packed, vegetable-heavy dish. No labels required.
Aside from cooking, Hetty is also a writer, blogger, recipe developer and occasional food photographer. She is a regular contributor to The Planthunter and has many writing projects in progress. Her second cookbook is due for release in Australia in Spring 2016.
Hetty, her husband Ross and their three children Scout, Dash and Huck are now based in Brooklyn, New York.
