I don't know about you, but this time of year my mailbox is full of food catalogs offering me food I don't really want. There are a few exceptions, of course, and Zingerman's is certainly one of them. The Zingerman's Catalogue is full of honest food, delicious things that the company makes, or stuff that Zingerman's partners Ari Weinzweig and Mo Frechette have discovered in their far-flung travels.
Stuff they make includes terrific bread, baked goods, and cheese. Carefully chosen olive oils, condiments, vinegars, and various sausages, the stuff of many a serious eater's dream, come from small artisanal producers all over the world. So today's Seriously Delicious Holiday giveaway, a $50 Zingerman's Catalogue gift certificate, is something every serious eater will covet.
To win this passport to delicious food from around the world and from Ann Arbor, Michigan, just leave a comment on this post telling us what your favorite cheese is.
You have until noon ET tomorrow (December 25) to enter. One winner will be chosen at random from among the commenters—if not on December 25 (as we'll be off tomorrow), then on December 26. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply. Contest winners are limited to residents of the continental U.S.
If you don't win, here's a secret code to get 10 percent off any food you buy at Zingerman's Mail Order by December 31, 2007. Enter 27PC1203 when you check out online or ring them at 888-636-8162. The nice folks there will give you 10 percent off all the food (offer doesn't include shipping, gift certificates, or already-discounted items).
