On the main drag through the slip of a town that is Glen Ellen, CA stands The Fig Cafe -- a casual spot from the people who brought us the beloved Girl and The Fig in Sonoma. Much like it's parent the cafe offers a menu full of local and artisan cheese, house made charcuterie, wood fired pizzas and various wine country specialties with plenty of dishes offering a taste of their namesake fruit. Though I'm sure during grape harvest and the "crush" the Fig must be packed to the rafters with eager tourists, today it was an easy going place to brunch and sip sparkling fig aperitifs.
I'm just a self-taught home cook who likes to try new things. One day when things were a little slow and dinner looked better than usual I decided to post the results on Facebook. Then I did it again and again -- and well, here I am, another addition to the blogosphere.
James, aside from being the "luckiest man alive" ;-), is my very tolerant boyfriend of nearly 10 years. I hope you enjoy sharing his dinner.
