Our hearts and prayers go out to all of our friends and family on the East Coast dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.  We wish you all a safe and speedy recovery!

Our first Suite D Kickstarter Cooking Class was a huge success.  Our good friends Don & Colette George invited some of their out of town friends for a class and lunch, and it was a blast! Don designed and manufactured our rolling bar/counters for Suite D and they worked as the perfect desk for the cooking class.

John taught the class some of our dishes from our book,Plats du Jour, including the Heirloom, Tomato & Watermelon Salad, Provencal Sole with Pepper & Olive Vinaigrette, Padron Peppers, and our Decadent Chocolate Brownies.




We have a feeling that our classes are going to be very popular.  See Suite D’s website for more information and the pricing for our classes.

PLATS DU JOUR, the girl & the fig’s Journey Through the Seasons in Wine Country


We will miss you!

My friend Ron introduced Julie to me back in 2002. Basically, he said that he had the perfect person for me, and he was right! Julie started working for us in accounting (and more!) on April 21, 2002. Back then, our office was behind the fig cafe in Glen Ellen in a 10 x 10 office. Julie has seen firsthand our company grow from 25 employees to over 200. She has been instrumental in creating and maintaining our administrative affairs, and especially in paying our bills on time!  Her enthusiasm for our company and our FIGfood line has been passed on to thousands of guests, clients, merchants, and employees over the years.

We have been through so much together and words cannot show the love and gratitude that I personally feel for Julie.  All of us at the girl & the fig and the fig cafe wish Julie and Ron the very best of everything as they move to their dream house in Oregon.

You will be missed, and I hope that we will always stay in touch.
