Contest Giveaway – Welcome to Zabar’s Gift Box

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.

To celebrate, I am hosting a giveaway with Zabar’s this week. Check out this fun prize! (gotta love that world famous rugelach…)


Get a taste of Zabar’s with the Welcome to Zabar’s Gift Box. In the sweet Zabar’s keepsake box you’ll find a pound of Zabar’s Blend fresh roasted coffee (all purpose ground), Zabar’s own cinnamon rugelach, a Zabar’s coffee scoop, a Zabar’s mug, instructions on brewing the perfect cup, and a reusable canvas Zabar’s tote. All with love from NYC!

To win this fabulous prize, just comment on this post and let me know your favorite food item that Zabar’s sells (check the website if you need ideas). Your email address will be subscribed to the newsletter, which means you’ll receive their weekly emails with free recipes and special promotions. A winner will be chosen at random, and will be contacted via email. You can also “like” Zabar’s on Facebook and Twitter; just make sure you comment here directly on my blog (below) to be officially entered in the contest.

Contest starts today and ends on Friday at 5:00 PST. Please note that this prize can only be shipped within the US, and we cannot ship to P.O. boxes, A.P.O.s, or F.P.O.s. Winner will be notified via email and announced on my website as well as Zabar’s blog. Good luck!

P.S. I’ll be appearing live at Zabar’s later this month in a Rosh Hashanah cooking demonstration… details coming soon!

UPDATE: CONTEST CLOSED! The winner is Steve L., whose comment was chosen by a contest randomizer. Here’s the winning comment!

“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!”

Congratulations Steve! Check out this Zabar’s post about the contest, and stay tuned for more fun giveaways! Zabar’s Announcement

    I had the hard kosher salami and it was so good! It is my current favorite–or maybe the rugelach is my favorite. It is so hard to choose!

    I so miss having my Zabar’s fix —- KNISHES!
    I need a hookup here in South Florida. I talk about them all the time.

  18. Wilma says:

    Hendersonville, NC finally got a decent bagel but we can’t get rugelach like those you get at Zabar’s. Yum.

    Thank you

  20. ellen greene says:

    your whitefish salad, nova, bagels, bialys, ruggelach, and chocolate babka……I am drooling….grew up in Brooklyn, and we would go to the city often and every time we made a special stop at Zabars! What a treat! Moved to NJ more than 30 years ago, and then North Carolina for the past 12 years and while we love it here, if I could sell my house, I would be back in a minute just to get a good plain bagel with a shmear and nova! I am ferklempt!

  21. Sharonshiatsu says:

    Just seeing this and reading the posts, I am “plotzing” and drooling thinking about the famous Zabar’s foods! I live on the other coast now so have not had the pleasure of their fine food in many years…but wow, how I love my Jewish soul food, and Zabar’s has to have the best! I love everything!

  22. carol krieg-fencik says:

    Rugelach it’s almost as good as the Tori’s– Really!

  23. bonnie brooks says:

    hands down..Ericas rugelach..the essence of reach rugelach.. I can make some serious rugelach myself but after having the Ericas from Zabars- why bother! Awesome pastry not too dry not too sweet not too small..super fresh..freezes really well.

  24. Rigby says:

    So much to choose from…the coffee is great, but have to go with the matzoh ball soup!

  25. Diana says:

    The homestyle Rugelach
