Seriously Delicious Holiday Food Giveaway: Russ & Daughters

20071129russanddaughters.jpgToday's Seriously Delicious Holiday Food Giveaway is a New York Nostalgia package from Russ & Daughters.

I've known Russ & Daughters' Mark Federman and his family ever since I came to New York 32 years ago. When I knew very few people here I used to just come to Russ & Daughters to kibitz and just feel like I belonged somewhere. It's a place I still visit for shelter from any storm. And for the company and the Russ family's incredible food. They know smoked fish like very few other people in this world.

The package includes: one pound of Gaspé Atlantic smoked salmon, a half-pound of sliced smoked sable, one pint house-cured herring fillets in cream sauce with pickled onions, one pound of natural cream cheese with chive, eight authentic New York bagels, one pound of old-fashioned rugelach, and a piece of old-fashioned marble halvah. All sent out Monday, December 15 for overnight delivery and will arrive at your door, as long as your door is in the continental U.S.

To win, just answer this in the comments below: What's your favorite New York brunch food? You have until 3 p.m. ET tomorrow (Friday, December 12) to answer. Winner will be chosen at random from among the commenters. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
