Some of the cooler auction items include a bread making class followed by a private dinner for 8 at Noord; a pasta making lesson from Lynn Rinaldi (of Paradiso); designing and naming your own sandwich at American Sardine Bar (we are particularly partial to this idea); and an ice cream making experience at Little Baby’s.

Ahem, anyway. To celebrate, Russet chefs Andrew and Kristin Wood have concocted a four course, prix fixe menu for $55 dollars a person that’ll be available only on February 25th.
