    All of us are looking for a little good luck and sweetness in this new year—which happens to be the year of the boar in the Chinese zodiac. Maybe we’ll find some at the Chinese New Year afternoon tea service at Fragrant Leaf this Sunday. On Jan. 20, take a seat at the little Nob Hill tea shop at either their 1 or 3:30pm seating for a catered three-course tea from Chez Axel Restaurant. The menu includes sweet and spicy Korean meatballs, ginger scones with five-spice whipped cream, orange blossom panna cotta with orange sauce and, of course, plenty of (green and oolong) tea. A vegetarian option is available—just ask for it when you make your reservation. Space is limited, and reservations cut off on Jan. 18. Tickets are $35 per person. Call 505-255-0522 or visit to reserve your seats.

    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 or call Chef Young at (505) 401-4220 to make your reservations.
