In this past week's Side Dish column, I noted several upcoming dinners and events courtesy of Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado and The Pikes Peak Chapter of the American Culinary Federation.

Here's a look at just a few more happenings to cross my radar recently:

• On Sunday, April 24, at 5 p.m., Nosh will host the 4th Annual Fran Folsom Culinary Arts Scholarship Dinner in conjunction with Pikes Peak Community College's Culinary Arts Department and the Blue Star Group. Seats are $95 ($160 per pair), and money raised will provide six culinary students full tuition for their final year of study at PPCC.
