Fresh Sheet: This week’s roundup of food-related news

After more than 30 years in the same spot, Carolyn’s Cake Decorating & Candy Supplies has moved to a new location.

“It was a hard decision to make, but it was an opportunity we just couldn’t pass up,” owner Michele Clemons said in an email.

The shop sells cake-decorating and candy-making supplies as well as holds classes such as how to decorate with fondant and make flowers with royal icing.

The new location doubles the size of the shop’s classroom space and has a bigger parking lot.

Carolyn’s had been located at 1704 N. Hamilton St. That location closed at the end of December. The shop re-opened in early January at 3131 N. Division St., Suite 104, in the Pounder’s Jewelry Center behind Bridal Collections.

Quick-selling collaboration dinners

Recent “Top Chef” contestant chef and Spokane returnee Chad White is teaming up with a couple of other local chefs to host special tasting menus.

Thursday, White is collaborating with Tony Brown, chef and owner of Ruins, on a $65, six-course Mexican-street-food-inspired menu. Chef Kwame Onwuachi, a fellow contestant on season 13 of Bravo’s “Top Chef,” is expected to participate in the event, which sold out within a day.

White is also collaborating with Wandering Table chef and owner Adam Hegsted on a six-course $95 wild game dinner on March 3. Tickets went on sale Monday and were expected to sell out quickly. Call (509) 443-4410 to see if spots are still available.

White was eliminated from the “Top Chef” competition in the Jan. 28 episode after using micro-greens on a beefsteak dish. Follow him on Instagram and Twitter at @ChefChadWhite.
