20081209ptl.jpgToday we're kicking off our second annual Serious Eats Holiday Giveaway series. First up, a chance to win the new, just-for-Serious-Eats, Zingerman's Praise The Lard Gift Box. (It's one of five such boxes we'll be giving away over the next month.) I think it is the quite simply the best pork product group ever assembled in one gift box. Before I get into that, there are two important points I need to tell you:

  1. Discount: You can buy this gift box or anything at Zingerman's for 10% off. Use the promo code SERIOUSLY when you call or check out. Good now until December 31
  2. If you recount your fondest pork memory in the comments of this post, you'll be entered to win the Praise the Lard Gift Box, mailed directly to you. We'll choose the winner at random from among the comments below. Commenting will close at 3 p.m. ET Wednesday, December 10. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.

OK, now listen to what's in it:

  • A pound of Benton's Bacon: In a country full of worthy candidates, Allan Benton's intensely flavored bacon just might be my favorite.
  • Broadbent Kentucky Sausage: Why is this Kentucky sausage, which comes in a cloth bag, so delicious? It's made with fresh ground pork, sage, red pepper, salt, and a secret ingredient or two and then smoked over green hickory for 24 hours. That's why? 'Nuff said.
  • Sam Edward's Virginia Breakfast Sausage: The Edwards family has been making this sage-y sausage for over a hundred years ago, so you can be sure they have the recipe and the process down pat.
  • Spanish Chorizo: Subtle, rich, fantastic, real chorizo from Spain made with pork, garlic, and paprika, then all cured in a room dried by smoke of a smoldering fire.
  • Zingerman's Peppered Bacon Farm Bread: Bacon + Pepper + Zingerman's Bakehouse Bread = Serious Deliciousness
  • Mo's Bacon Bar: Bacon+Chocolate = A Sweet Kind of Serious Deliciousness
