When Hetty McKinnon uprooted her beloved Arthur Street Kitchen from Sydney's Surry Hills and relocated to Brooklyn, NYC, she left behind legions of devoted fans. These fans found solace in Community, Hetty's immensely popular cookbook showcasing the delicious, seasonal salads so adored by her customers.

Now Hetty is back, with a second cookbook that is equally sure to delight and inspire. Neighbourhood takes its cues from Community and ventures a little bit further. These salad and sweets recipes are inspired by many different places, journeying from Brooklyn to the greater Americas, the Mediterranean, Asia, France, Australia and many other places around the world for inspiration.

Author Information

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 flavour-packed, hearty, seasonal salads, which she delivered to locals on her bicycle.

In 2015, Hetty, with her family and Arthur Street Kitchen in tow, relocated to the rather larger neighbourhood of Brooklyn, New York City, where she continues to deliver salads to locals, run creative pop-up events and cater lunches, making food friends along the way. Hetty also writes about her experience of food, life and adventure in Brooklyn on her blog.

Her first cookbook, Community: Salad Recipes from Arthur Street Kitchen, was published in 2014.
