CHEF SONDRA BERNSTEIN (Forkly: @figgirl)
Forkly users got a real treat this past week as Chef Sondra Bernstein shot one Forkly pic after another during her NYC Cookbook Tour. While in New York, Sondra tried many New York City restaurants and enjoyed sharing special dishes with other Forkly fans.
But her day job…
Celebrating its 15th anniversary, the girl & the fig is an iconic Wine Country destination that serves country food with a French passion. the fig café & winebar is a casual bistro in Glen Ellen; and the two restaurants’ Italian “sister,” ESTATE, offers Rustic Italian food.
Sondra also just released her new book: Plats du Jour: the girl & the fig’s Journey Through the Seasons in Wine Country. Her launch in NYC this past week included a dinner she cooked from the book at the James Beard House in New York City.
For those in or visiting Northern California, meet Chef Bernstein at three upcoming events:
- “Cooks with Books” on April 14 at ESTATE restaurant
- Demo Cooking Class, April 20 at The Fork at Point Reyes
