Seriously Delicious Holiday Food Giveaway: Russ & Daughters

Every day through January 1 we're giving away a crazy good food item on Serious Eats. Try your luck, and if you win, you'll be eating some seriously delicious food come the new year.

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 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.
