Most of you know by now that I’ve partnered with Zabar’s, New York’s landmark gourmet superstore on the Upper West Side. I’m thrilled about being a part of the Zabar’s team, it is a truly special place with a fascinating history.

To celebrate, I am hosting a giveaway with Zabar’s this week. Check out this fun prize! (gotta love that world famous rugelach…)

In the sweet Zabar’s keepsake box you’ll find a pound of Zabar’s Blend fresh roasted coffee (all purpose ground), Zabar’s own cinnamon rugelach, a Zabar’s coffee scoop, a Zabar’s mug, instructions on brewing the perfect cup, and a reusable canvas Zabar’s tote. All with love from NYC!

UPDATE: CONTEST CLOSED! The winner is Steve L., whose comment was chosen by a contest randomizer. Here’s the winning comment!

“If you have not tried the Benedetto Cavalieri pasta from Zabar’s, you have not tried real pasta! This stuff straight from Puglia, is pasta perfection. I go for the elbow shapes every time!”

  1. Sooooooo jealous! Everything sounds so wonderful but I have never been to Zabars because I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Would they consider opening a branch in the Chicago area?

  2. Wow what a find,my husband is Jewish and he has introduced me to a lot of Jewish foods,when I asked my mother in law for special recipes she said that most jewish foods were not healthy so she never did share any with me,my husbands memories of favorite foods came from his grandmother and greataunts,I have found many healthy and delicious recipes on my own too,my favorite indulgence is cinnamon rugelach with a great cupp of coffee,this contest really got my attention.Thank you fgor having it.

  3. When we lived in NYC while husband was in grad school, I loved going into Zabar’s and just wandering in around. SO much yummy goodness in one place. I would have to say their cheese counter is my favorite.

  4. I once drove all the way to New York on a Sunday morning for nothing more than a cup of coffee, some rugelach from Zabar’s, and a babka to take back home to Boston. It was worth the four-plus hour drive!

  5. I lived on the upper west side of NY in the late 1980’s. I shopped at Zabars weekly. During the winter months Zabar’s Chicken Pot Pie was a Sunday evening special with a big green salad…all purchased from Zabars. LOVE IT! MISS IT!

  6. It HAS to be Zabar’s very own Novie Smoked Salmon. I was introduced to this wonderful delicacy (especially when combined with bagles and cream cheese) by my grandmother. Of all the wonderful textures and flavors she brought into my life, that is the one that brings her back to me, though she has been gone for 30 years.

  7. I’m absolutely crazy about Parmigiano Reggiano. I’m already subscribed to their weekly newsletter!

    Thanks, Tori and best of luck with your cooking demonstration for Rosh Hashanah

  8. Both the chocolate & cinnamon rugelach, and as I always comment…the coffees; so good, I stopped using creamer and drink them black!

  9. Zabars. Where you discover how good Jewish food can really be. ( sorry Bubbe but your strudel tasted like mothballs). Rugelach- any flavor, chocolate babka, lox and onion bagels, potato knishes, coffee, hot pastrami on marble rye with melted cheese and mustard, halvah. Sigh…stuck in Baltimore 3 hours away.

  10. I’ve always heard wonderful things about their fresh baked gourmet breads, but in addition, the bagels and the salmon sound fabulous…I could easily go nuts shopping there!

  11. Okay, I have never been there, but I have heard of them. And I just signed up to receive their catalog, and I can’t wait!!! I’m going to order some of their toasting bagels and kosher flavored coffee! Zabar’s for breakfast, YESSS!!!
    Thanks, Tori!!
    Love ya,

  12. I live in North Carolina and I LOVE everything you have in the store!!!! The pastries are the “bomb” Please send me something and make me a winner. I can’t get there very often!

  13. My four basic food groups are Coffee, Chocolate, Cheese, and Cookies : ) Zabar’s offers all that good stuff plus breads, cakes, pickles, olives, deli meats, gift baskets and so much more. I should be able to count as high as the number of sensational selections at Zabar’s!!!

  14. Too much to choose from! I Love breads,best in city and best coffe I ever drink come from You Guys!When i comming back to Brooklyn with 6 lb of coffe ,subway car smell like coffe shop!lOVE tHAT SMELL!!!!
