We’re excited to update you on what we’ve been up to recently with Potliquor, instead of making food for you. We have some very good news: we are signing a lease this week for our own little kitchen, and hope to be settled into it by August!
There will be opportunities to participate in crowdfunding, presales, kitchenwarming parties, and more! We’ll be posting updates as the kitchen progresses, and hope to resume crates sometime in August. In the meantime, we are still taking catering jobs, so please do send us your betrothed and party needing friends.
To be the first to hear about new developments, join the email list (link above)!
**Sold out! Thank you!**
We’re pleased to announce the fourth Potliquor crate, a warming menu that we’ve been looking forward to offering you since the beginning. This one will be available as a vegan ($115) or omnivore’s version ($125), or you can get all possible options (one extra item) for $140. Crate and jars deposit is $25, or the return of your previous ones. As always, there will be a packing slip with details about how to use every element.
Pork stew, quart
Lightly spicy, green and bright
Hominy stew, quart
in a comforting red broth
Heirloom beans, quart
Cooked slowly with aromatics and bay—one of the best quick meals in any kitchen.
Fermented cabbage with carrots, onion and chile—the perfect condiment for everything else in the crate.
Pumpkin seed lime citronette, half pint
For dressing salad or cold beans, dipping vegetables
Roasted varietal squash puree, 20 oz
Sweet and satisfying, and an incredibly versatile element to have about.
Hot sauce, 4 oz
Our own, made with Aji Amarillo chiles. Treasure. (Laura wants me to say Liquid Gold.)
Likely avocados, limes, and a surprise.
A limited number will be available for pickup in San Francisco on March 5 and in Oakland by arrangement; if you’d like one, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know which sort of crate you’d like (vegan, omnivore’s or all in) and where you’d like to pick up. We’ll email you with a confirmation.
Exciting things are in the works, stay tuned for details!
All our best,
jennifer and laura.
***Sold out! thank you!***
A rich and nourishing vegan broth
Practically a registered drug.
A mix of our favorites.
Sourced from Mendocino, unique and delicious. Might give you superpowers.
A very different one from last time, with a bit of extra wild dark-green goodness.
We love these curly, sturdy, thin crackers—nourishing and satisfying and a great foil for anything you want to put on them, from bright to rich. If you’d rather not have any gluten in your crate, we can leave these out and credit you the difference.
Curated by our friend Sina at Red Circle Tea. Special.
This is delicious, rich, and among the most nutritious foods a person can eat. We hope you will try it! Beautiful for a picnic, on toast (see above), over some spicy greens with pistou, in a bowl with rice and seaweed…just lovely, really.
We’re happy to announce the details of our winter provisions offering, available for pickup in San Francisco or Oakland on December 19. It’s a crate of treats savory and sweet, suitable for giving, keeping or a combination of the two: the wool socks and crackling fire of food. $115 for the omnivore’s version, $105 for the vegetarian, plus $25 crate and jars deposit (or a trade for your returned ones!). Here’s what will be in them:
A rare and special treat: the Buddha’s hand, preserved! Great for cocktails, punch, or to glaze a pound cake.
Thanks for supporting Potliquor! We hope to see you soon.

Who are you?
We are Jennifer Lynch and Laura McGrath, friends who have been cooking together since 2000. You may know us from jenniferlunch or from Cowgirl Creamery. Potliquor is our best answer to the question of how to help people get to a rhythm of great food at home; it’s one we’ve been pondering for quite a while.
What is Potliquor?
It’s a new kind of meal service: carefully prepared and sourced food in reusable containers, given as elements that can be combined as a meal unto themselves or used to brighten and enrich ingredients you already have. We choose the menu each week, so you don’t have to; the food is interesting and seasonally based, but also accessible. We want it to feel like your food.
Do I have to pick it up?
We are starting by offering pickup instead of delivery for a few reasons: we want to meet you and answer any questions you might have, face to face; we want to build a business we can sustain; and we have hopes to develop pickup days into weekly gatherings as we get some momentum going.
Are there instructions?
Yes! Each kit comes with suggestions for reheating and serving, as well as recipes for incorporating leftover sauces and special elements.
What if I have questions after I get it home?
We are at your service: we really want this to work for you. Send us an email or give us a call, and we’ll be glad to answer any questions you have.
How else can I reach you?
We’re so glad you asked! At our web shack: http://potliquorsf.com, or on Twitter @potliquorsf. Be sure to join our email list, too, if you’d like be the first to know about new kits! You can sign up here.
Will the kits sell out?
We are starting small, so the first few may sell out. We are working toward making food for everyone who wants it, so if you miss one, please check back with us!
I know of a space that might be perfect as a drop site; are you interested in knowing about that?
