A little Back Story 
(we love a good story)
Morris Kitchen’s mission is to connect New Yorkers with local, and seasonal food. They believe that the best food is often unadulterated, fresh and organic. Tyler has been cooking in restaurants for thirteen years,and is passionate about seasonal ingredients and sustainable farming. Previously a Sous Chef for Tom Colicchio's Craftbar Tyler now serves as Sous Chef at April Bloomfield's Breslin Bar & Dining Room. Kari worked front of the house at Foreign Cinema restaurant in San Francisco for three years while studying painting at California College of the Arts. This is where her food crush blossomed into a full time love affair. From the table setting to the guest list, Kari has an eye for the details of bringing a meal together. Having graduated with a degree in Fine Art, Kari also organizes Art Fairs and enjoys teaching kids about local produce and healthy eating habits. She continues to successfully engage people of all ages with food and art by introducing them to new ways of cooking. Beyond the products, Morris Kitchen is a brother-sister run monthly supper club. They source their ingredients from the Greenmarket and from our friends at Rooftop Farms. The goal of Morris Kitchen is to provide quality products that are made with genuine care, by hand.

Fresh: Made weekly, by hand, in small batches.
Friendly: Beautifully crafted syrups in bottles that are appealing and user-friendly. There are complex ways to use this syrup, they are amazing in cocktails, and yet, simply drizzled over ice-cream is all these syrup call for.... (of course we would say that.....)
Local. Made in Brooklyn, baby.
