Laura Avery is the market manager for the Santa Monica Farmers' Markets. This week she talks to Ari Taymor about passion fruit. The chef and co-owner of Alma uses the fruit in desserts and house-made sodas.
On Labor Day weekend Ari Taymor will be at Field to Fork, part of the LA Times TASTE event at Paramount Studios back lot. Russ Parsons will moderate a discussion on root to stem cooking with Ari, Gary Menes of Le Comptoir and Bruce Kalman of Union.
Plus, Dates by DaVall are back with their Barhi dates, a seasonal specialty in the late fall.
