Our Unconventional Kitchen Story

Our Unconventional Kitchen Story

Repurposing a convent to prepare delicious, locally-sourced meals was just the beginning of the Unconventional Kitchen story. Serving those meals to all ages, putting every dollar back into a nonprofit mission, and continuing the cycle of reinvestment to the community...that's the heart of the Unconventional Kitchen.

A recipe for serving the Pittsburgh community...

  • A beautiful convent, with an immaculately maintained commercial kitchen
  • A dedicated team of culinary professionals led by an Executive Chef
  • Scratch-prepared dishes utilizing local ingredients
  • Commitment to sustainability and caring for the earth
  • A nonprofit serving generations of Pittsburghers for nearly a century
  • Serving up delicious meals for all ages while making a difference with every bite
