Salty fig was established in 2015 by Chef Nicole Mackie. Formally trained in Vancouver at VCC with experience in some of Vancouvers elite hotel kitchens and smaller boutique cafes. She found a niche market in the Thompson-Okanagan and hasn’t looked back since! We believe in bringing our best to the table. A combination of quality and creativity is our main focus. We aim to incorporate a playful and relevant twist to suit your particular needs, proudly educating ourselves on food trends while incorporating culture and nutrition to ensure that the cuisine served at your catering event is fresh in both ingredients and construction. All ingredients are sourced from local farmers whenever possible. Food should satisfy the soul as much as it nourishes our bodies.
“We still talk about the amazing meal Nicole made for our wedding. She accommodated us at last minute, truly made the night special and allowed everyone to relax and enjoy the night. When I walked in and saw the food being served and her working away in the kitchen I knew I did not have to worry about a thing! Nicole is a gem and I will definitely be booking her for future events!”

“This was one of our best Thanksgiving dinner’s ever! Nicole did an amazing job putting together a three course turkey and prime rib feast for my family. She was very kind, professional and accommodating. She delivered, set up, and even carved our roast at our house! The dinner was beautifully presented in serving dishes, she literally took care of everything. The food was well prepared and delicious! We are definitely planning on using her services for any future events we have. We highly recommend her for any gathering or event you might have. Thank you again Nicole for making our evening a memorable one.

“Nicole is amazing! My boyfriend and I decided to surprise our family by getting married last weekend and Nicole just brought the day to the next level with her catering. She was so great with meal suggestions! We had her make lunch (who knew wraps and salads could taste so good?!), appetizer/charcuterie board (tasty AND beautiful) and one of the most amazing dinners I have every had (seriously… I didn’t know tomato soup could taste so good and that risotto?!? YUM! On top of the yumminess, Nicole was also so kind, caring, and helpful with ideas for me to plan the rest of the day and even pitched in between meals. Long story short: great price, great service, amazing food – you can’t go wrong!
