The Poet Kitchen Co. is born out of the Toronto-based restaurant The Poet Cafe. Founded by two friends and fellow food enthusiasts, Amir and Mohsen, the restaurant flourished into one of the city's most popular brunch destinations in the downtown area. The Poet Cafe soon fostered a dedicated following, and it was this very community that inspired the restaurateurs to create a business that was entirely unique.

Creamy Turmeric Hummus: The hummus uses a combination of traditional culinary techniques and contemporary ingredients for a unique flavor profile and luxuriously smooth texture. Turmeric, caramelized onion, and freshly squeezed lemon come together in a brilliant balance of umami and acidity to create a dip that is truly unique and delightful.
Charred Salsa with Pomegranate: Inspired by the pomegranate gardens of Saveh, the Taquerias that line the streets of New Mexico, and the cultural mosaic that is the city of Toronto, this refines the beloved household dip into a worldly experience. Enjoy the warm flavours of traditional charred Mexican salsa infused with sweet and tangy notes of pomegranate with a slightly spicy undertone that will treat your tastebuds with every bite.
Smoky Eggplant with Fried Garlic: Using a combination of traditional cooking methods from the Mediterranean and surrounding regions, the whole eggplants and garlic are roasted over an open fire, which lends this dip its smoky undercurrent. Over the flame, these ingredients are transformed into a thick texture that is sweet, rich, and exceptionally delicious. A hint of mint adds a unique twist for a dip with complex layers of flavour with a soft, creamy texture
