Food entrepreneurs have found a way to inject a little bit of the South Pacific into familiar foods and beverages for an exotic blend that seems to be popping up everywhere. Goodbye, strawberry and kiwi -- hello, passion fruit. Also known as granadilla, passion fruit is a purple, yellow or orange fruit with a yellow interior and edible seeds. It is 2 to 3 inches wide, has leathery skin that is often shriveled and is native to tropical regions that include the West Indies, Australia and Malaysia.

A handful of new food trucks are circling Baltimore's streets. We're catching up with them in advance of A Taste of Two Cities , the big June 23 Baltimore vs. D.C. food truck rally. Here's Hula Honey's Hawaiian Shave Ice . Billed as "Charm City's littlest dessert truck," Hula Honey's vehicle was designed by and custom-fabricated for owners Momi and Ramsay Antonio-Barnes on a Bajaj auto rickshaw (known in India as a tuk-tuk , and similar to the Piaggio Ape of Italy)

A dead-ripe mango is a taste of paradise. Some people -- no dTC doubt aware of the mango's reputation as the "apple" of the Orient -- claim it was the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden.But two bushels of the heavenly fruit ripening all at once is more like a little bit of hell. At least it was some years ago for my family of three mango lovers when we realized we would never be able to eat them all before they spoiled.On a car trip to Florida we stopped at a stand near the Everglades where mangoes were cheap by the bushel.

A week hence, Baltimore diners will begin speaking a strange new language, bending their tongues around opakapaka and onaga, which is not to omit furikake and lilikoi and so much seared shutome. And you thought it was tough to say Yuri Temirkanov. The name this time is Roy Yamaguchi, member of a burgeoning club of celebrity chefs to appear on television, publish a cookbook and open a restaurant or two. He serves Hawaiian/Asian/Euro- pean-fusion food, featuring fish (opakapaka, onaga and shutome)

First things first. A "hike" in the Caribbean is not that annoyingly long distance between your hotel room and the beach. True, that's as far as most people want to go before flopping down on the sand and soaking up the sun. But there is actually serious hiking in the islands, from the 10,000-foot scramble up Pico Duarte in the Dominican Republic, the highest point in the Caribbean, to lowland trails through the gardens of St. Kitts. I wanted something in between, and after a few Google searches (typing in "hiking" and "Caribbean" turns up about 908,000 results)

MIAMI -- A new fruit, whose developer hopes can be an alternative to citrus crops in freeze-prone areas of Florida, is thriving in a South Dade County field.It is the unlikely union of a native American weed called the Maypop and a passion fruit, said Robert Knight, its creator. The horticulturist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture bent over microscopes for years manipulating its chromosomes in an effort to make it grow.His creation still doesn't have a name, but it does yield a fruit that ranges in color from light green to dark purple, measures about 3 inches around and has a tangy taste that is both sweet and sour.

The Preakness may be Baltimore's best horse race, but for a lot of people it's also Baltimore's best excuse to party. To some that means beer and chips in the Pimlico infield. To others, though, it's Crab Louis on Belgian endive and red pepper bisque en croute at the Paolo Gucci Triple Crown Ball.We can't all attend the Maryland Jockey Club's celebration at the National Aquarium or partake of an extravagant luncheon buffet at one of the corporate tents on the big day. But the organizers and caterers involved with the high end of the Preakness festivities are willing to share their menus and some of their recipes with us. Feel free to borrow from them for your own Preakness party.

The Avenue's newest addition, The Food Market, successfully combines a clean industrial aesthetic with an approachable and affordable menu, and their cocktail menu is no different. A list of all-time favorites and tweaks to classic cocktails populate the list, including everyone's favorite from New Orleans: the Hurricane. Or as The Food Market calls it, the Hampden Hurricane. The recipe for any Hurricane is a straightforward mixture of dark and light rum, loads of passion fruit syrup and lime, which normally results in an almost sickeningly sweet fruit bomb in your mouth.
