Hey, you! You have a little over two hours left to bid on one of the skull-shatterinigly wonderful items that will go to benefit La Cocina, an equally astounding local food service program that helps "cultivate low-income food entrepreneurs as they formalize and grow their busi­nesses by provid ing afford able commercial kitchen space, industry-specific technical assistance and access to market opportunities." Primarily, they help out women from communities of color and immigrant communities.

What's more, without La Cocina, you might never have heard about The Street Food Festival or The Creme Brulee Man. And that? Isn't a world we want to live in.

A few of the items on which you should bid during your lunch hour? Whole Animal Butchery w/ Americano's Chef Kory Stewart (fascinating!), Chef for a Day at Chez Panisse (dare you to sneak in a bag of Buegels!), Flour + Water Pasta Class and Dinner (Chef Thomas McNaughton is, in a word, hot!), Mexican Mama Tamale Making with El Buen Comer (¡Olé!), In Home Meat Class and Private Dinner w/ Fatted Calf (all kinds of amazing!), and A Very Progressive Dinner with the Tablehopper (Can you keep up?), and more.

You have until 2 p.m. today to put in your bids. There are a slew of other fun gastronomic treats from which to choose. Check out the silent auction in its entirety.
