When Sondra Bernstein quietly opened her restaurant “The Girl & The Fig” in 1997, people began to slowly but surely discover the delicious and unique French foods that were coming from the kitchen. When she linked up with John Toulze, a chef native to Northern California, he left his career in hospitality at a winery to help Sondra run her restaurant. He worked as the sous chef and floor manager and made his way to Chef de Cuisine and, years later, the Executive Chef and managing partner. With a mutual passion for food, Sondra and John now run “The Girl & The Fig” in the wine country of Sonoma, CA and have provided a favorite location for both locals and those visiting the area. Sondra has since written a coffee table and cookbook and John has received an award for “Rising Star Chef” in 2009.
