Laurel Almerinda is the pastry chef at Cassia and, along with Zoe Nathan, runs the bakery at Milo & Olive and Huckleberry. This week, she's shopping for tropical pineapple guavas, from which she makes a special guava butter.
Plus, Santa Monica Farmers' Market manager Laura Avery talks to Romeo Coleman of Coleman Family Farms about his pineapple guavas. This week's crop is his first of the season, with six other varieties coming soon to the market. He recommends that guava be eaten whole — skin, seeds and all — for the full tasting experience.
