About the Author
Hetty McKinnon is a home cook with a passion for vegetables. In 2011, she established Arthur Street Kitchen, a community kitchen with a simple concept: local food for local people. From her inner-city terrace kitchen in Surry Hills, Sydney, Hetty dreamed up and cooked flavor-packed, hearty, seasonal salads, which she delivered to locals on her bike. In 2015, Hetty--with her family and Arthur Street Kitchen in tow--relocated to the rather larger neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City. From there, she continues to deliver salads to locals, runs creative pop-up events, and caters lunches, making food friends along the way. Hetty also writes about her experience of food, life, and adventure in Brooklyn on her blog, www.arthurstreetkitchen.com.
