Most of you know by now that I’ve partnered with Zabar’s, New York’s landmark gourmet superstore on the Upper West Side. I’m thrilled about being a part of the Zabar’s team, it is a truly special place with a fascinating history.

    Chocolate Rugelach is mine, my son likes the awesome Black and White Cookies!

  2. Susan Gelpi says:

    Belly lox & whitefish salad!!!

  3. Picking the favorite items is difficult…where to start:
    1) rugelach
    2) raisin pecan loaf
    3) little critters petit fours (for the kids of course, I have 3)
    I subscribed to their e-mail and already got a promotion..woohoo!
    This is a fantastic giveaway I do hope that I am the lucky girl!

  4. Koltov says:

    There’s too many foods to mention that are favorites. The cheeses are outstanding!

    One of my favorite items is the Continental roast. I can’t remember having a better cup of coffee. I order whole bean and grind the beans myself. (I only wish they’d partner with Keurig so when I just want one cup quickly, I could pull out a K-Cup).

    I’ve missed being able to go into the store, sample the foods, buy REAL NY food! I had been visiting the store since high school until I moved to Virginia in 1977.

    Looking forward to your newsletter.

  5. Tobin says:

    Definitely: bagels! This Native New York transplanted to the Pacific Northwest definitely couldn’t survive without frequent care packages from her old home. What’s sells as a bagel out here shouldn’t be used to scrub a sink!

  6. Ellen Teeman says:

    Lox, bagels, cream cheese, herring…keep it coming…love everything they sell!

  7. vanessa mayor says:

    Smoke Salmon, of course, I love it!

  8. Rachel says:

  9. Elise O'Connor says:

    The bagels and coffee by mail order without a doubt! When I’m lucky enough to pay a visit, I raid the cheese counter!

  10. Malki gartenberg says:

    I want to win soooooo badly ,love the zabars coffee rugalech and just plain love winning!!!!!!!

  11. Peggy says:

    I’d have to say the rugelach! Yum!

  12. Joe Rouse says:

    Enjoy the Zabar’s House Blend the most. I order four pounds at a time as well…free shipping!

  13. Jessica says:

    Definitely the belly lox.
    AND my favorite Zabar’s story. I was probably about 10, approx ’79, in Zabar’s with my parents when I decided I wanted to touch one of the salamis that lined the deli counter at the time. Wel,l I was a little too vigorous in my attempt to reach the salami and BOOM! one fell right into a huge tray of rice pudding. Let’s just say none of the adults were too pleased!

  14. I am following Zabar’s now on Twitter (@rachelkyle0402)

  15. MerRhosyn says:

    Mmm…smoked salmon!

  16. Louise Hyson says:

    Smoked Nova, Whitefish, Whitefish salad, Sturgeon, Chubs – how I miss them since moving to NC – when I worked there I usually left at least half of my weekly pay in exchange for these delights -

  17. Louise Hyson says:

    I liked Zabar’s on Facebook

  18. Scott L. says:

    If you have not tried the Benedetto Cavalieri pasta from Zabar’s, you have not tried real pasta! This stuff straight from Puglia, is pasta perfection. I go for the elbow shapes every time!

  19. Char Wodarek says:

    I haven’t had the good fortune to visit Zabar’s either, so winning this gift would be an amazing first and not to mention memorable!

  20. So funny, I just bought my first item from recently. A bunch of girls went to Cape Cod to our friend’s parents’ house, and we sent a gift basket from Zabars afterward. We sent “Don’t Be Homesick,” which has lox, salami, pastrami, mustard, cream cheese, rye, bagels, cookies, and rugelach. If someone delivered pastrami, mustard, abgels, and rugelach to me, I’d be a happy camper. Great giveaway Tori!

  21. TAmish Organic says:

    Love Zabars—-they are DELISH! especially with coffee and organic milk! can you enter me thanks

  22. Roberta Barnes says:

    I would always favor the cheddar cheese, Vermont 1-Year Aged Farmstead Cheddar. If you’ve never tried you must!

  23. Diana Hyman Hernandez says:


  24. Carrie says:

    What could be better than Zabar’s deli meats?

  25. Libby Jones says:

    The blue cheese. drool, drool, drool!!!!

  26. Melissa Lawler says:

    Smoked Whitefish (which you cannot get in South Dakota) :-(

  27. Su Berland says:

    Their coffee is the BEST! When I’m in NYC I try to snag a few bags to import back to Atlanta.

  28. sharon says:

    love the kosher gift baskets to send out, especially the apples and honey for Rosh Hashana!

  29. Wendy Schatz says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever had anything from Zabar’s, but would welcome the chance to try their rugelach.

  30. Dina Gold says:

    Smoked whitefish salad

  31. Denise says:

    My husband and I live on Long Island, but my son lives down the blog from Zabar’s. When we come in to the city for a visit, we always have dessert at his place, Zabar’s delicious coffee and baked goods.
    When he comes home to visit us, he brings us Zabar’s yummy chopped liver! It reminds us of our old neighborhood’s deli, but our favorite food at Zabar’s is the HOMESTYLE BABKA! It’s not dry like other babka’s: it’s so moist and chocolatey. We just love it!

    P.S. My absolute favorite thing about Zabar’s is that it is keeping my son well fed with home cooking -especially Chicken Soup when he’s not feeling well, and Mom can’t get to the Upper West Side to give him some!

  32. Mary Nelson says:

    I have never been to Zabar’s, but just visited the website and it all looks wonderful. The ligurian pasta looks especially yummy and will try it as soon as I can. Glad to know a great new (to me) website to find these these things.. Hope I win the picnic basket too.

  33. Peter Edwards says:

    Always love the pastries.

  34. Diane Blossey says:

    I have never tried any thing from Zabars, but i am game.

  35. Joyce Rosenhek says:

    I would love the rugelahs.

  36. Dana says:

    Every kosher and most kosher bakeries make them…but Zabar’s is truly outstanding. What am I talking about? BLACK AND WHITE COOKIES!!!!!

  37. Rolane Seastrand says:

    I love to make Sweedish Crepes with Loganberry Butter, making the Logenberry Preserves only one of my favorites. This is followed by their Rye Bread and Corned Beef.

  38. jen chou says:

    lox! that is all

  39. tiffany says:

    My favorite food is their smoked salmon! Love that with a bagel, cream cheese, sliced onion, tomato and capers!

  40. Cynthia Elyce Rubin says:

    Whenever I come to NY, I always buy the smoked salmon. It is the best in the land!

  41. Pick one thing!? Hmmmm….. does EVERYthing count! I love the cheese counter and the fish counter and the breads. Oh, and the housewares!

  42. Alice Borg says:

    The Mile High Lemon Merengue Pie :)

  43. Nancy Giunta says:
