About Kit an’ Kin:

Kit an’ Kin organically grew from Anya’s desire to connect with her community on Caribbean heritage and culture. As a graduate of Culinary Institute of America, Anya looked no further than her parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles to continue her culinary education on the Trinidadian and Jamaican foods she lovingly ate growing up. The intergenerational exchange and stories passed down in the kitchen amidst roti clapping, stews simmering, and spices grinding became the inspiration and basis of Kit an’ Kin with Anya's family at the helm. Kit an’ Kin operates as a culinary studio and catering kitchen with cultural programming, events, and online marketplace. Chef Anya has been featured in Cherry Bombe "Ones to Watch," Bon Appetit, Edible Brooklyn, Detroit News, and selected as an Eater Young Guns finalist. Chef Anya continues to teach, document, and proudly represent Caribbeanness to the masses through food and storytelling. Follow our journey and #feastwiththefamily.

About the Local Roots Market+Cafe :

True to the ethos of Local Roots, our cafe menu uses ingredients sourced from small, local, sustinable farms. 90% of our ingredients to be exact. That's an unheard amount of ingredients that come from local sources, bringing farm to table to the next level. Our dishes are inspired by our founder's favorite childhood dishes and feature Chinese homestyle cooking. The inspiration for the Local Roots Market+Cafe design comes from our founder's travels to Mexico City and Japan, and her love for artists James Turrell and Louis Barragan. In addition to the cafe, shop local produce, dairy, eggs and meat, house baked goods, boba tea, as well as sustainable living products.
