Learn to Cook Like a Lover; Organic Avenue Launches UWS Outpost

Chelsea: Dine on vittles grown on NYC farms — that’s right — and help support the immigrant farmers who harvest them January 30 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Sueños. For $75, taste the creations of house chef Sue Torres, Jacques Gautier of Palo Santo, and other toques. All proceeds help the New Farmer Development Project recover from Irene. [Edible Manhattan]
Gramercy: Tom Colicchio’s simplistic-food haven Craft brings back its Blind Tasting dinner January 27, where Craft wine director Greg Majors will lead diners through a blind tasting of eight vinos. The most discerning palate will be awarded a prize, so follow Majors on Twitter for clues. A four-course meal will accompany the tasting. E-mail Kate at kgardiner@craftrestaurant.com for reservations; $110 per person plus tax and gratuity. [Grub Street]

Midtown: What could possibly make these winter days any warmer? Custom Hot Toddys built by you, of course, laddy. For $16, start with a base of liquors, then add fruit, condiments, and spices for your not-so-classic fireside cocktail at Forty Four, the bar at the Royalton hotel. [Grub Street]
Soho: Learn to cook in true aphrodisiac style with the Cook to Bang chef himself February 12 at My Sexy Tasty Valentine — noon to 3 p.m. at Skillshare HQ (407 Broome Street). The spread includes all-you-can-drink wine pairing and hands-on preparation of chicken lettuce cups, orgasmic catfish, and some under-the-chocolate-covers strawberries. [Grub Street]
Upper West Side: Organic Avenue opens its seventh location today at 461 Amsterdam Avenue (at 82nd Street). The corner shop boasts twenty-foot-high ceilings and all the organic, vegan LOVE* cleanse products they’ve come to be, well, loved for. [Grub Street]
