Hetty McKinnon


I was born and raised in the suburbs of Sydney, Australia. Growing up, I had two great passions - my mother's seriously delicious Cantonese cooking, and books written by Enid Blyton and Jane Austen. In 2011, Arthur Street Kitchen, was born, with an aim to share my home cooking and salad obsession with my community of Surry Hills, in inner city Sydney. I have been vegetarian for over twenty years, but I don't develop recipes for vegetarians. My plant-based recipes are truly egalitarian, for every person who enjoys a flavour-packed, vegetable-heavy dish. No labels required. Along with cooking, my other great love is writing. On any day, find me in my home kitchen developing recipes and then writing about them. I have just finished writing my second cookbook, due for release in Australia in Spring 2016. In 2015, my husband Ross and I relocated ourselves and our three children Scout, Dash and Huck to Brooklyn, NY, seeking new adventures and a few food capers along the way.
