Hi food people, how are y’all holding up out there? In this issue, we cover Cutbow Coffee, a soon-to-open coffee shop operated by a New Mexico native with 30 years’ coffee roasting experience. We also talk about Food Rescue US, a volunteer-based nonprofit that saves would-be-wasted food and delivers it to the food pantries and shelters where it’s most needed. I drove some bagels around in my car just to get you guys the scoop. Lots of good food to make and eat and donate this weekend, Albuquerque—get on it.
Biscuits and Beer at Red Door
The marvelous folks at Biscuit Boy show up in a cute truck full of fresh-baked biscuits and then they make delicious sandwiches out of those biscuits for you to buy and eat. On Saturday, March 10, they are pulling that truck up to Red Door Brewing (1001 Candelaria Rd. NE) to sling breakfast sammies alongside Red Door’s brews to the early morning crowd. We’re talking early morning like 7 to 10am. Yeah. Expect to see some shift workers and possibly some folks who haven’t gone to bed from the night before yet.
Red and Green VegFest
New Mexican food isn’t always particularly vegetarian- or vegan-friendly, but that doesn’t have to be the case. On Saturday, March 10, the Red and Green VegFest celebrates all things veggie with a day full of classes, lectures and cooking demos at the Albuquerque Convention Center. From 9am to 6pm, you can learn about choosing vegan wines (wait… wine isn’t normally vegan!?), how to make refrigerator pickles and how to sing to animals. No, for real. Adult tickets are $15, student and senior tickets are $5. Whether you’re a lifelong vegan or just curious about starting a healthier/healthier for the environment lifestyle, this event is a great opportunity to find out more about veganism.

Hot Yoga and Brunch at Pueblo Harvest Cafe
On a sleepy Sunday morning, all you wanna do is get some brunch and then move as little as possible after that, right? That’s why, at the Pueblo Harvest Cafe’s (2401 12th Street NW) fireside bends and brunch event, the yoga comes before the brunch. It’s $5 (cash only!) for the hour-long yoga class on Sunday, March 11 at 10am, and you then get 10% off the cost of your brunch at the cafe. This is a warm class (read: fireside), so dress accordingly and bring plenty of water. Just think—you can totally justify that eggs benedict after an hour of hot yoga. No RSVP needed.
Ravioli Cooking Class at Sarabande B&B
If you’ve ever had fresh, handmade ravioli, then you know it’s *Italian chef hands* so damn good. How’d you like to learn to make that damn good ravioli for yourself? You can do just that at The Art of Ravioli, a cooking class taught by Michelle Michelotti-Martinez at Sarabande B&B (5637 Rio Grande Blvd. NW) this Sunday, March 11 from 5 to 8pm. Participants learn to make three raviolis and three accompanying sauces, with printed recipes provided. Enjoy the fruits of your labor afterwards, along with a few glasses of wine with your classmates. It’s $85 per person to attend. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 505-577-2316 for a reservation, and visit eatentions.com to learn more about Michelle’s catering and other classes.
