On Wednesdays, you'll find California chef Jeremy Fox at the Santa Monica farmer's market, greeting fellow chefs and checking out produce like spring onions and strawberries.
Some people call Fox the "vegetable whisperer." He can coax remarkable flavors out of every part of his produce, even the flowers and leaves that most chefs throw away.
