If someone told you five years ago that grocery stores would soon start selling fermented tea made with a live yeast culture, you’d likely raise an eyebrow or two. But this is exactly what has happened with Kombucha. While it’s by no means new (it’s believed Kombucha first originated in 221 BC), the probiotic-rich drink has gone from specialty niche to mainstream markets seemingly overnight.  The Kombucha boom of the last five years rivals Vancouver’s craft brewery scene about ten years ago.

Take Out/Patio Service Let’s get the obvious out of the way first — Let them cook for you! Seeing as indoor dining has been suspended again, it’s time to put in a little leg work and repay the hustle that our food workers have shown us over the years.
