Episode Notes

On this episode Hetty McKinnon and I share a meal in her Brooklyn studio kitchen. Hetty’s an Australian cookbook author, columnist, creator and publisher of Peddler Magazine, and champion of nostalgic storytelling. Needless to say I adore her… Hetty began her life in food making salads and delivering them on her bicycle throughout her neighbourhood in Sydney. She now lives in Brooklyn, where family, recipes and community are woven into all that she does. Our conversation begins on a bicycle but touches down on motherhood, salad love stories, family and writing. But one theme remains constant: being courageous enough to be different, being true to yourself, will lead to a full and flavourful life.

Woven throughout the episode is the alphabetic wisdom of filmmaker and animator Andrea Dorfman. There’s also a little cameo of Hetty’s voice from the past, via The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry Podcast.

Hetty’s latest cookbook, FAMILY, photographed by episode 27’s Luisa Brimble, is out now. Look for it in your favourite bookstore, or here.
