Holiday Giftguide+GIVEAWAY: Holiday Seafood & $50 Whole Foods Gift Card Giveaway!

Events / Giveaways / Partnerships

Happy Monday, Noshers!  Hmm, I know “Monday” and “Happy” don’t always go together, but they do when it’s Day 3 of my 2012 Holiday Gift Guide + Giveaway extravaganza!  Today’s gift guide involved a challenge on my part – I was tasked by Whole Foods Market to create a unique “fish dish” in honor of the Southern Italian tradition of “The Feast of the Seven Fishes”!  Traditionally served on Christmas Eve, this luxurious meal usually features (you guessed it) seven different seafood dishes.

I have never had the opportunity to attend a traditional Feast of Seven Fishes meal (anyone having one and want to invite me? ;)).  However, armed with a $50 gift card provided by Whole Foods Market, I was eager to purchase some quality seafood for my own take on a fish dish:

Smorgasburg at Whole Foods: Milk Truck Grilled Cheese

Events / Giveaways / Partnerships

Last month I had shared my Smorgasburg at  Whole Foods experience with you, when I was invited to sample the complex and mouthwatering sandwiches of vendor Cemita’s.   For those of you who are new to the Nosh blog (or those who, like me, have impressively inadequate short-term memory), Smorgasburg at Whole Foods Market Bowery was launched early this year and each month offers one vendor from Smorgasburg space to introduce their offerings in a cafe setting!  Since many Smorgasburg vendors don’t have storefronts, this is a fantastic opportunity to introduce their products to a wider audience.   Much to my delight, I was invited back again for Smorgasburg at  Whole Foods‘s second featured vendor – Milk Truck Grilled Cheese!

I must admit that Milk Truck Grilled Cheese and I have met before…

Smorgasburg at Whole Foods: Cemita’s

Eating Out, Events / Giveaways / Partnerships

This past summer, an eating buddy and I had the chance to check out Smorgasburg.  For the uninitiated,  is a seasonal food festival that takes place in Williamsburg (usually; it just moved to DUMBO for the cooler season) that features anywhere from AMAZING food vendors!  Eating buddy and I had grand plans to try a dozen stalls – I believe we tapped out at 6.  Soooo delicious. I highly recommend you check it out if you have the chance!

Unfortunately, Smorgasburg isn’t very convenient for me to get to – AND it’s almost the end of the season!  So I was super excited when I was approached about a partnership between Whole Foods‘ Bowery location and Smorgasburg. Smorgasburg at Whole Foods Market Bowery was launched in late October, and the space offers one vendor from Smorgasburg each month space to introduce their offerings in an intimate cafe setting!  I found this really cool, as many of the vendors don’t have storefronts – this is a great “incubator” opportunity for them to flourish and still grow while it’s not prime Smorgasburg season!

I was offered a complimentary meal from the first Smorgasburg at Whole Foods Market Bower vendor – Danny Lyu’s Cemita’s.  When I heard about this 10 layer sandwich (they also serve tacos!), I knew I had to give it a try:
