The photographer: Pam Giarrizzo of Sacramento
The dish: I experienced this flavor explosion recently at Sweets and Sugars on Freeport Boulevard. The piña loca, or crazy pineapple, is a fruit salad served in a hollowed-out pineapple with a scoop of pineapple freeze. In addition to the pineapple, it includes watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, jicama, and kiwi. Chamoy (a pickled fruit sauce) and chili powder are liberally applied, and the whole thing is topped off with tamarind candy ropes and served with a tamarind-covered straw.
