The Fig Pantry, a recently-opened bakery and delicatessen in Sonoma, is full of delicious things, not least of which is their leek tart, heated in a press. It’s rich, filling, and loaded with flavor–sort of a thin quiche Lorraine, minus the bacon. “It makes me want to try more of their things, but I don’t know if I can get past this one the next time I’m there,” says Mick Ruthven.
rworange loves their Alexander Valley pickles, and ranks their bagels as some of the best in the Bay. The coffee they brew and sell is by Graffeo, and they carry several flavors of Fiorello’s gelato from San Rafael.
And somebody please try the “frozen twinkie,” which looks like a small chocolate-covered yule log with a white squiggle on top.
