The Irvine Saturday farmers market is the largest and best in Orange County, but it's a mixed bag. It has some worthy local small farmers who come in person, along with more commercial farms, and even a few who have been sanctioned previously for cheating by agricultural authorities or other managers. Orange County Produce, owned by the family of the previous California agriculture secretary, A.G. Kawamura, farms on remnants of undeveloped local land, a bittersweet reminder of the county's past agricultural glory.

If you're ambivalent about fresh asparagus, you will probably prepare dishes where it is not the star but the stand-in. You may hide or partially disguise it in a casserole, souffle or quiche. But many people prefer fresh asparagus on its own--boiled or steamed al dente and served simply with a butter-lemon sauce.

If Willy Wonka had a farm, it would fit right in here in Israel. Want a lemon-scented tomato or a chocolate-colored persimmon? How about some miniaturized garlic cloves for the home chef who doesn't have time to chop, or a purple potato that tastes buttery when cooked? There are no chocolate rivers or edible teacup flowers on Israeli farms, but you will find carrots shaped like potatoes, strawberries shaped like carrots, star-shaped zucchini and "watermelon" tomatoes — dark green on the outside with a juicy red flesh.

An item in your Sunday Ventura County Week section was headlined "Women Win Suit." The article stated that 100 women won $575,000 in a wage discrimination suit against the Oxnard Lemon Co. The article went on to say that the lawyers for the women received an additional $675,000 for their services. Unstated was the fee for the lemon company lawyers. Shouldn't you have headlined the article "Lawyers Win Again"? MARVIN MILLER Oxnard

We have no quarrel with strawberry daiquiris, no complaint with pina coladas . Harvey Wallbangers and margaritas have their place. But when the order of the evening is elegance, it's time to call upon the classics. From left: the refreshing combination of bourbon and mint in a frosty Mint Julep; a Gin Rickey with its crisp tang of lime; a crystal-clear Gibson; a cool, citrusy Orange Blossom; a topaz-colored Manhattan, and the sweet secret of a fizzy Champagne Cocktail.

The glass case at Maria Grammatico's Pasticceria del Convento in the hilltop town of Erice displays treasures worthy of a Swiss bank. Cannoli, filled with fresh ricotta, is just the best known variety. When you make a closer study, you discover a world of confections as beautiful to look at as they are sweet to eat: green cassata cakes made of almond, sugar, vanilla, buttermilk curd and candied fruit; perfectly formed marzipan prickly pears and tomatoes; lemon-flavored cuscinetti (small fried pastries)

Who is the Dodgers' biggest free-agent lemon over the past 15 years? Is it Don Stanhouse, Dave Goltz or Darryl Strawberry? At least Stanhouse and Goltz tried to contribute. On the other hand, Strawberry left his bat and love for the game in the Big Apple. THOMAS LITTLEFAIR Long Beach

"This recipe is named after my wife, Tatyana," Tony Bartholomew writes, "a Russian citizen who has been unable to immigrate to join me for three years now. We have cooked this dish many times at her apartment in Moscow. I started with my mother's recipe of fettuccine Alfredo and modified it several times according to what was available in Moscow."
