  • REVIEW: Colorado Springs' Ola Juice Bar makes healthy taste hedonistic

    Editor's note: JL Fields joins the dining team with monthly reviews of vegan options at a wide variety of local restaurants. No meat, no fish, no dairy, but lots of vegetables. For a lot of 
people, eating vegan is tantamount to a culinary death sentence. But for me, veganism makes sense - ethically and physically. I'm happy to report,...

  • Food & Wine Classic in Aspen attracts top-notch chefs who show off new culinary trends

    With 50 speakers giving presentations over three days, it was hard to decide who would win my attention and precious little time at the 32nd Food & Wine Classic in Aspen in June. I zeroed in on four cooking demonstrations: "World of Eggs" by Jacques and Claudine Pepin, "Bitter Is the New Black" by Andrew Zimmern, "Global Vegetarian" by...

  • Wine Guy: Versatility marks chardonnay

    Chardonnay has been America's favorite white wine for around three decades. While quality accounts for much of that popularity, it helps that chardonnay can be made in different styles to appeal to different tastes and occasions.

  • 5 reasons Chipotle still has fans lining up for more

    Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) blew the doors off of its second quarter Monday, and its shares took an after-the-bell leap to an all-time high near $650, double the price hit early last year. Investors are high on the stock for many reasons. Chipotle took the rather stale concept of fast Mexican food and turned it into something new. It's got...

  • Drive-thru review: Love that shrimp from Popeyes

    This week I decided to try an eight-piece order of Cracked Pepper Butterfly Shrimp at Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen. Veterans always will call it "Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits" because that's what started this company. Here's the Cracked Pepper Butterfly Shrimp breakdown: eight shrimp marinated in Cajun seasoning and deep-fried with a light...

  • Seductive images expose dark side of America's diet

    It wasn't simply one commercial. It was a childhood awash in them. Like most of our childhoods, more or less. Printmaker Sam Cikauskas has channeled the sweet myth making of Mountain Dew, Heinz ketchup, Coca-Cola and other products into a series of lithographs. "I guess it's my response to growing up eating these products and kind of...

  • Rethinking a healthy breakfast: a meal in a muffin

    When fall rolls around and it's back to school and work, wouldn't you love to start your day with something tastier and more substantial than that all-too-typical bowl of cold cereal? It's so boring day after day. And that's apart from the fact that most cereals will fail to tide you over until lunchtime. Here, then, is a meal in a muffin, a...

  • What exactly is a craft beer? It can depend on who you ask

    I was back home in West Virginia for the Fourth of July and made plans to join a friend for drinks at a new-to-me spot, The Mountaineer, in "downtown" Berkeley Springs, a half-mile stretch of main street bounded by two of the town's three stoplights. "Best nonredneck place in town," my friend said, tongue firmly planted in self-avowed redneck...
