Armando Garcia brings in delicious cocktail grapefuit which are full of seeds but taste more like an orange than a bitter grapefruit. Cara Cara navel oranges are also in season. They taste better than a traditional navel and have a pink flesh. Both are in season through the summer.
Jean Francois Meteigner of La Cachette Bistro in Santa Monica tells us what do to with rutabagas. The root vegetable looks like a large turnip with an orange hue. The taste is somewhere between a turnip and a Garnet yam. Jean Francois adds them into a root vegetable cous cous and also makes a cumin-seasoned soup with them. He also recommends wrapping them in foil and baking them in the oven like you would a baked potato.
