Gourmandise's New Location
The chocolate ganache and raspberry brownies from Gourmandise have long been a part of my gastronomic DNA, and I'm as pleased as a petit four that the French pastry shop has expanded its operation. As of April 20, Gourmandise To Go (1000 S. Main, 801-419-0412, gourmandisethebakery.com) is open for business. Like the name implies, Gourmandise To Go offers a smattering of the bakery's greatest hits—hot and cold sandwiches, a full roster of cookies and a generous selection of their famous cakes—and packages them up for quick, boxed meals. For those in less of a hurry, the space also has a dine-in area where you can watch the bakers work their magic through thick-paned windows—though they don't appreciate it when you lick the glass while they're baking.

Kolache Fest
My love for Hruska's Kolaches (2030 S. 900 East, 385-309-4379, hruskaskolaches.com) has been well-documented in the pages of City Weekly, and I highly anticipate their annual Kolache Fest on Saturday, May 5 from 9 a.m. to noon. For a paltry entrance fee of $5, Hruska's offers to the public its entire roster of sweet and savory kolaches—they're like dinner rolls stuffed with tasty fillings such as scrambled eggs, sausage or fruit and cream cheese. The Sugar House bakery features around 30 types of kolaches, and attendees can feel free to bring their own non-alcoholic drinks.

Central Ninth Street Fare
If you've yet to experience the bustling, effortlessly cool vibe that Central Ninth has begun to develop, then it's time to throw yourself into the deep end of the pool. Local First Utah has partnered with KRCL 90.9 FM to create Spring Fare at Central Ninth, a celebration of the local businesses that have helped the community thrive. The event unites restaurants and businesses like Laziz Kitchen, Meditrina, Jade Market, Water Witch and Proper Brewing, offering guests a sampling of their various foods and drinks. In addition to providing an evening of great food and entertainment, the event functions as a benefit for KRCL. The Spring Fare kicks off on Sunday, May 6 from 1-5 p.m. at 165 W. 900 South. Tickets for this all-ages event are $25 and are available through 24tix.com.
