Judge Baldwin's Brewing Co., 4 S. Cascade Ave., in The Antlers hotel will soon become a thing of the past.

"Within about a month, the back of the restaurant will be pushed out and replaced with a Duca's Neapolitan Pizza," said Ryan Blanchard, general manager of The Antlers. "Eventually, the rest of the restaurant will become an Italian eatery."

A door will be added to the outside of the building to allow access to the pizza area.

And, according to Blanchard, the Antlers Grille will get a makeover.

"It's going to come back to its glory days," he said. "The room will still be used for breakfast, but the evening meals will be upscale like it was years ago."

The menu will focus on local, seasonal food.

Despite its strange-sounding name and gross appearance when it's being made, a fermented tea called kombucha is generating an increasing amount of interest.

According to retail analyst Micro Market Monitor, there was a fivefold increase in global sales of the tangy, fizzy tea from 2013 to 2015 - about $600 million a year. Several commercial brands are available at grocery stores for between $2 and $4, and there are local purveyors who have been making it. Or you can make your own.

What's all the fuss about?

According to "The Big Book of Kombucha," by Hannah Crum and Alex LaGory, there are a slew of gut health reasons for consuming fermented tea.

"Fermented foods are rich sources of probiotics, that is, those

JL Fields, vegan cookbook author and lifestyle coach, grew up in Illinois where pork is a mainstay, especially when barbecue season heats up. But when she turned to a vegetarian lifestyle, which quickly became vegan, her love of pulled pork sandwiches became history.

Though her reasons for eliminating animal products stem from ethical issues, she said she misses the texture of meat and tries "to make foods that remind me of things I used to eat." And one of her go-to meatlike foods is jackfruit.

According to "Food Lover's Companion," jackfruit is a relative of breadfruit and the fig and is grown in tropical areas. Known as the world's largest fruit, it can weigh up to 100 pounds. The pebbly skin, oval tropical fruit can be

I've been shopping and naturally I made some discoveries for wine lovers and home cooks. For the former, it wasn't actually a wine that I spotted; it was a unique carrier for the wine. For the latter, I have several things to report.

First up is what I found at the Spring Fling at the Winery at Holy Cross Abbey in April: the Picnic at Ascot Diamond Two Person Sunset Wine Carrier. It's just what the doctor ordered for picnic season. Sally Davidson, vice president of marketing for the Abbey, located in Cañon City, had loaded up the tasting room's shelves with all manner of picnic items, but it was the tote that caught my eye.

Cowboy Star Restaurant and Butcher Shop, 5198 N. Nevada Ave., celebrated its first year in business with a whole hog barbecue. The buffet also included barbecue beef brisket and extra creamy mac and cheese, which is a new side dish offering on the menu.
