Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Zingerman's Praise the Lard Gift Box

Every day through January 10, we're giving away a crazy good food item on Serious Eats. Try your luck!

20081209ptl.jpgThe Serious Eats Holiday Giveaway series continues today with a chance to win the Zingerman's Praise The Lard Gift Box. I think it's 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 the Forbidden Foods Club with free shipping—just order it within the next 48 hours.
  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 tomorrow, December 18.

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
