Chef & Owner
Chef and Owner Holly Sheppard initially moved from the South to New York City to pursue a career in comedy. After countless nights in comedy clubs and waitressing to pay the bills, she eventually found her true calling and took a turn for the kitchen. She’s worked in top restaurants across New York City honing her craft. With a dream to open her own restaurant but with little capital, Holly - being a true scrapper with an entrepreneurial heart - decided she would start Fig and Pig Catering. At the end of the day, all she’d really need was a client. Fast forward seven years later and Fig & Pig is a thriving business with continued growth and success annually. Holly’s food reflects her life and Southern upbringing while constantly shifting and reflecting the endless inspiration of this cultural melting pot, The Big Apple.
Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Event Coordinator and West Coast transplant Lainey Nash has always been enamored with the cultural, energetic, and creative landscape that is New York City. After working in several creative industries since landing in the Big Apple, she would eventually find her place and passion in the world of food. She feels strongly that life’s precious moments can easily be conjured around a beautiful meal and will always strive to create experiences that are both personal and memorable for her clients.
