You So Saucy
Chef Jon Young is the pitmaster at ABQ BBQ, but he also happens to be a French-trained chef. Which is why he’s just the guy to teach this series of classes on the five mother sauces, the cornerstones of cooking that can help you make your good dishes into great ones. From Jan. 13 to Feb. 10, Young is teaching home cooks how to make one of the crucial mother sauces every Sunday from 6 to 8pm. For the first class this Sunday, Jan.13, he’s covering the Demi-glace or Espangnole sauce, which is the foundation of brown sauces. Each class is followed by a dinner with wine and some food featuring the sauces you’ve just made. Classes cost $75 a pop or $300 for all five and reservations are required. Email email@example.com or call Chef Young at (505) 401-4220 to make your reservations. (Robin Babb)
