EVEN STEVENS TURNS A PORK SANDWICH VEGAN WITH JACKFRUIT

It’s Pinterest’s top trend for 2017 and the “latest miracle food,” according to Epicurious. Jackfruit is generating a buzz.

It taps vegan trends with an ingredient that, unlike tofu- or soy-based options, isn’t lab-made and tastes like meat—a plus for nonvegans who increasingly order veggie dishes. And an ethnic spin gives a nod to the fast casual’s Hispanic base. Originally an LTO, the torta replaced the vegan Sloppy Tina sandwich after outselling it fourfold in its first month.

Whatever Happened to ... Utah's "Widowmaker"?

On the southern edge of Draper, two-story homes populate a wedge of land once occupied only by dirt and sagebrush. A scarred 1,000-foot hillside is the single remaining clue that the area hosted an internationally recognized spectacle for 25 years.
