At Three Little Figs, our goal is to revive the age old art of preserving by giving our products new and exciting flavor profiles while honoring traditional cooking methods. We love the connection we have with where our food comes from and believe that amazing food is an affordable luxury. Three Little Figs is dedicated to the creative use of quality ingredients with a focus on flavor and sustainability. Locally sourced and globally inspired we begin with the hand cutting of organic produce and patiently cook each batch in copper pots which yield no more than 18 jars per kettle. Our preserves are artisanal in the truest sense of the word. We also pay special consideration to where our ingredients come from. We love our farmers. They are as obsessive as we are about doing things the “right” way. Sourcing our ingredients so close to our kitchen allows for fruit to fully ripen on the vine or tree as it should. We also search high and low for the best spices, vinegars, and of course BOOZE. We cook with love, and it shows.
Liz is owner and head chef at Three Little Figs. A woman of the world and diviner of delicious flavor combinations, she brings culinary alchemy to the kitchen. Liz worked as a globe trotting fashion stylist for fifteen years but then decided to return to her home town of Portland, OR and her first love - food. Liz founded Three Little Figs after noticing a gap in the market for domestically produced accompaniments for cheese boards and charcuterie plates. Here she gets to experiment and tinker with the flavors she grew accustomed to during her jet setting days and bring them together in a wonderful new way. When Liz takes a taste of her favorite flavor, Tomato Tapas Jam, she is transported back to her days in Spain - sitting on the veranda of a bustling cafe, enjoying good wine and tapas.
