Several months ago, I told you about a wonderful new local business, Confituras, preparing preserves, jams, jellies and conserves from locally grown, in season produce.

In just4 or 5 short months Stephanie, the brainchild of Confituras has just won the The Good Food Awards, presented in California, in her category with her fig preserves.  The Good Food Awards celebrates local and sustainably made food.  Confituras has been on fire since she rolled  out the first preserves at the Barton Creek Farmer’s Market, then the Sustainable Food Center Farmer’s Markets downtown and at the Triangle.  Her products are available at La Boite, both locations of Breed and Company, C’on Olio at the Arboretum and Antonelli’s Cheese. They are used on the menu at the W Hotel as well.

She isn’t even back in town yet from receiving this prestigious reward, but snatch up her products as soon as you can find them.  You’ll be glad you did.



Local gal brings home the big prize and I couldn’t be more proud!
