"Lunch time in the 'hood just got better!"
Back in 2011, Hetty McKinnon established Arthur Street Kitchen in her hometown of Sydney, Australia. Using locally-grown produce, she created healthy, hearty, and visually appealing salads inspired by the seasons, which she delivered to local salad-lovers all around her Surry Hills neighborhood on a bicycle.
It was an immediate success and created such a sense of community that Hetty felt inspired to write the stunning Community, Salad Recipes from Arthur Street Kitchen cook book.
Now living in Carroll Gardens, Hetty has found new inspirations from the city's many food markets and is busy writing a second book, which will appear later this year.
Starting on March 15, 2016 , she is also launching a salad subscription service in Brooklyn very similar to the one she operated back in Sydney.
Subscribe and twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Hetty will deliver full-flavored, hearty seasonal plant-based salad boxes directly to your door.
Each delivery day, there is just one salad on the menu, with variations available for vegan and gluten free diners. Menus for the week are emailed out on Monday morning (usually) so you know what to expect!
Salads are usually delivered for lunchtime, between 12.00pm - 2.00pm.
