HER Giveaway: Iron Chef Michael Symon’s Celebrating the Holidays with Flavor

December 20, 2010 by Kat  

CONGRATS TO Michelle! She was chosen as the winner, and her comment was:Buy viagra best price

le=”font-family: ‘arial black’, ‘avant garde’;”>

I’d absolutely LOVE to win this set. First of all, who doesn’t love Michael Symon. My husband is the ultimate pork lover. I mean, come on, he’s got 2 websites and several blogs that deem him the Ultimate bacon lover. He’s even been on TV regarding his bacon love. Not only does he love bacon, but he loves pork in general. I know that I’d be pleased as punch to win this so I could give it to him. Drooling already with the possibilities…


I’m kind of over buying presents for others.

I know it’s better to give than receive. No matter how many times I repeat it over and over and over again — in my head or aloud, admittedly, there’s a freaking ginormous a small piece of me that wants to be on the receiving end. Especially Christmas morning. Maybe it reminds me of my mom. She and my dad unselfishly made our Christmases so freaking magical, it was r i d i c u l o u s. I know Christmas is “mostly” for kids, but. I. love. presents. always. did. always. will.

Hubs and I decided we’re not exchanging gifts with each other this year. As a 30-something adult with 4 kids, I should be open-heartedly professing that “It IS all about the kids, anyway.” However, I’d just be doing my job; being the picture perfect mom… saying all the right things. And lying. I’m a girl. I like things. End. of. story.

At first I was all, “Oh, of course not — let’s just get for the kids this year, honey. I don’t really need anything, anyway.” However, as the big day approaches, I’m getting a little bit weepy and feeling a bit like a child. Heck, I just want S O M E T H I N G to open on XMas day. An small appliance? New jeans? Man, I’d even be happy with a few new spices for my collection!

ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE.

In early December, right after I realized that I want ‘things’ and that’s just the reality, I was asked to work with celeb Chef Michael Symon (Iron Chef, anyone??) to mix up seasonal flavors by pairing pork’s savory flavor with unsuspecting holiday favorites like cinnamon, chocolate and pumpkin. Chef Symon is the man. He can illustrate how pork can be enhanced by almost any ingredient with recipes like “Cider-and-Beer-Braised Pork with Chocolate Mole” and “Coriander and Cumin Roasted Rack of Pork with Five Spice Pumpkin Puree.” I mean, seriously? Are you not drooling?

Chef Michael Symon and his crew are trying to help moms like myself find their perfect pork pairing this holiday, and early into 2011.

They have decided to give one lucky winner “Pork’s Perfect Pairing Holiday Guide,” filled with all of the items anyone would need to create flavor-filled meals. Your family and guests are going to be scratching their heads, wondering, “What is in this? It.Is.Awesome!!”

They are awesome — Chef Simon and his promotions crew sent me the below to review myself… and have offered for me to GIVEAWAY one of these JUST FOR ONE OF YOU!:


  • A $25 gift card to conveniently purchase your favorite pork cuts online
  • A blogger-exclusive holiday recipe from Michael Symon
  • A large assortment of seasonal spices to inspire flavor-rich holiday pairings (let me tell you… BRAND NEW seasonings I’ve never even seen on the shelves yet! Tons of NEWLY launched McCormick’s Spices that are first roasted, before jarred; delish!)
  • A chic holiday serving platter to reinvigorate your holiday dinner style
  • A signed copy of Michael Symon’s new cookbook
  • Two festive aprons to prepare your holiday feasts
  • A digital meat thermometer to ensure that your holiday meals are delicious yet safe

Simply COMMENT below, letting me know why you’d like to win this, and I will choose a random winner on Monday, December 27th, 2010.

Click here to check out HIS Giveaway – especially if you dig Grilling or Tailgating.


Please note that the National Pork Board is not sponsoring the giveaway promotion, but rather supplying the prize pool for me and the winner.

Disclaimer : Honey, check your inbox. Even though I’m indicating above that all I really want for Christmas is the box of the above, I’d just be doing my job; being the picture perfect wife… saying all the right things. And lying. I’m done pretending “it’s okay if we don’t exchange“. This game isn’t any fun :-( .

  24. Teegan Briggs says:

    I’d love to win this because pork is my favorite meat. And I don’t eat it nearly enough. And part of the reason is because I love it so much that I don’t want to get sick of it!

    I feel you on the receiving gifts thing. Like you, my husband and I also agreed not to exchange gifts this year…and toward the end I too began to regret that agreement. But a little voice in the back of my mind was telling me that MAYBE he would buy me something anyway and surprise me. I hoped and hoped and hoped…and I ended up a little let down. And a little mad. Don’t you hate when you have absolutely no legitimate right to be angry?
