Farr at work: This could be your dining room table.

You know, a house just isn't a home these days without a little pig butchery. Just so happens that if you score the winning bid in the San Francisco Street Food Festival's silent auction, you'll be able to give your flat exactly what it's been lacking — a personal hog-hacking demo from 4505 Meats' Ryan Farr.

Festival organizers recently published their growing list of auction items. If the Farr butchery turns you off, consider the chance to be chef for a day at Chez Panisse (don't worry — something tells us they won't throw you on the sauté station during the lunch rush) followed by dinner for two. You can score Japanese cooking classes from Peko Peko Catering, learn how to knock out Salvadoran tamales from Maria del Carmen Flores of Estrellita's Snacks, and get a cheese-and-wine pairing in your home from the Cheese Shop of Healdsburg.

The Street Food Fest unfolds on August 22nd, along a blocked-off stretch of Folsom between 25th and 26th streets. Check out the full list of auction items at its Web site.
