Community Collaborations

500x500jpegThe Fig & The Knife is a small business owned and operated by Chef Janette Gomez. But our success is in part to wonderful partners and collaborators in our community.  We love brainstorming and creating with other business in the Phoenix area and beyond. Below are a few we love to work with.  If you love us, you’ll probably love them!

Although, most of the time I create dishes on the fly, trusting my palate and instincts and rarely follow a recipe to the letter, I have on occasion written recipes.  You can see a sampling of those on my recipe page.  Additionally, I was honored to be included in a few editions of our quarterly local publication, Edible Phoenix. As a freelance contributor, I not only write the recipe, but also photograph the supplemental images and the In Season featured image.  Pick Up a copy around town! Visit:


IMG_DA3F1D015D2D-152 Saturday’s a year, rain or shine the team at Phoenix Public Market, now known as Downtown Phoenix Farmers Market organizes a market nestled in the heart of downtown!!  They opened up the market to us in early 2018, and we have made this our home ever since.  The community involvement, both from the staff and all those that make the journey across the valley to shop, eat and chat with us, makes heading out before the sunrises worth while!  Come say hi, and buy local! 


Uptown Logo  In 2020, we’ll be branching out to various markets and events around the Phoenix area.  Beginning in the spring, you can find us at Uptown Farmers Market, where you can experience 100 different local vendors, AND US! We’re excited to expand to new areas of the valley and speaking to a whole new community of neighbors. Check our calendar for upcoming Saturday and Wednesday pop ups.

 Screen Shot 2020-02-14 at 6.19.01 PMWe’re collaborating with a local Nutrition professional and Fitness Coach, Elizabeth Schardt, CPT, PN1 to bring complete packages to both of our respective customers.  Stay tuned for Instructional Videos and packages.

F1B4494E-F76F-4F99-BD09-6577BBD3D677We only use the. highest quality ingredients in our products.  When we create our Chef Inspired specials, we always use Hatun Olive Oils. They have a great line of flavorful oils, such as Sweet Garlic, Chili, Basil, Bergamot and more. Find your favorite and bring home your own bottles. They are usually right next to me at the Farmers Market here in Phoenix.

When we are not at at the markets or an event, we are usually busy in the kitchen.  So to ensure the community is able to pick up our products, you can find us in select boutiques around town. Although, they may not have our full line, they have many of the area favorites.  Contact them directly to see what is in stock.

We have teamed up with Team Forty-Four gym in Phoenix to bring to you Chef44 Series!!  An informative workshop/lecture series featuring their in-house Dietician, Angela Gomez, and cooking demos by Chef Janette.

Team 44 In 2005, Team Forty-Four was established to inspire our clients to live limitless and perform at their ultimate potential. We’ve lived out this vision by creating a fun, community atmosphere that offers customized personal training and lifestyle programs for all levels and injury history. This is not crossfit. This is not a bootcamp. This is a technique driven, sustainable training program. We are Team Forty-Four.
