Community is all about sharing good food, giving you endless ideas on delicious salads to serve up for your family, friends and neighbours. These simple, sustainable and healthy recipes feature fresh, seasonal produce and inject colour, life and flair into that most modest of everyday meals: the salad. Rather than being simply sides,Community's salads are meals in their own right, giving vegetables, legumes, herbs and nuts their moment to shine.

The recipes in Community are inspired by author Hetty McKinnon's community kitchen, Arthur Street Kitchen, where Hetty single-handedly makes and delivers homemade salads to residents in Surry Hills, Sydney, on Thursday and Friday every week. All by bike! Hetty's salads use only the freshest produce, sourced locally wherever possible. Inspired first and foremost by the seasons, Hetty also takes cues from what she sees, smells and experiences from the world around her. At the heart of every dish is a core vegetable, around which a thoughtful culinary story is built, resulting in honest, inventive and hearty salads that deliver big, punchy flavours.

About the Author

Hetty McKinnon is a home cook who grew up devouring the colours, aromas and flavours of her mother's ebullient Cantonese cooking. Formerly a beauty PR, she is now the one-woman show behind the incredibly successful Arthur Street Kitchen, whipping up flavour-packed salads and sweets in her home kitchen then delivering them by bike to hungry Surry Hills locals. Hetty lives in Sydney with her husband, Ross, and three children, Scout, Dash and Huck. Community is her first cookbook.

      This is the first recipe book i've come across where every meal is a success!
      Each time my partner or I make one of the salads... it's always "no, this is the best one so far" and each time, they keep getting better.
      I love how incredibly balanced and healthy these salads are, a complete meal... and SO much flavour.
      I've recommended this book to so many of my favourite people...

                This cookbook has reconnected me to the love of salads and whole foods. It's a beautifully presented book, which I use several times a week. Have bought two copies as gifts! The salad recipes in this book taste incredible, are super healthy, and so dinner party worthy. Do yourself a favour and get a copy!

                  I seem to collect cookbooks, and this one is definitely my most used at the moment. I have cooked many of the recipes on multiple occasions and loved them all. Highly recommended.

                      I have many cookbooks and I cook something from this book at least once a week. It takes veggies to a whole new level and makes it easy for our family to enjoy nutritious and delicious vegetarian options. Every recipe I have made has turned out well. I'm now purchasing one for my sister. Highly recommended.

                        Dishes all taste fantastic and are even easy for basic cooks. Takes the average vege to the next level and has reignited my love for being in the kitchen and trying new flavours. Best cookbook on the market right now! I have even purchased it as gifts for friends.
