American Feast, LLC :: Apricot Fig Chutney :: About the Producer
'the girl & the fig'
County's most beloved destination restaurant, 'the girl & the fig', now offers a chance to enjoy a taste of the wine country at home.
Owner Sondra Bernstein says that "Because the real flavor of the fig is relatively unknown, it is really important to me to highlight the amazing taste and texture. I believe we are helping to increase the popularity of the fig - one taste at a time."
The fig flourishes in the fertile and sun drenched valleys of
California, where vast orchards of fig trees can be found.
As early as 2900 BC, in early Sumerian times, the medicinal use of figs was being stressed.
Now as before, the fig offers a power-house of nutrition; a combination of fiber, minerals, and nutrients that are unequaled in nature.
Figs contain iron, potassium, beta-carotene as well as benzaldehyde (anti-cancer compound), flavonoids and a digestive enzyme called ficin. They are a superb source of soluble and insoluble fiber.
Figs also contain vitamin B6, which is responsible for producing mood-boosting serotonin, lowering cholesterol and preventing water retention.

Sonoma dining & wine!
