This Reader Reward is now closed. Congratulation to our winner, Lindsay (a different Lindsay than day 1), who will be going to La Cuisine for the first time and picking out something to support her love of cooking.

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a La Cuisine certificate for some upscale cooking and baking accessories...

As part of our Twelve Days of Christmas giveaway, we're happy to bring to you a $50 gift certificate to La Cuisine. For over 40 years, the Cuisinettes’ goal at La Cuisine has been to serve as an exceptional resource for the amateur and professional cook. La Cuisine is a unique and independently owned store, which proffers only the best products at affordable prices. They prefer to deal with independent, small suppliers, priding themselves of having a larger stock of useful tools than bigger chains carry. At this time of year, La Cuisine’s selection of food-related holiday decorations is exceptional—everything from frosted donuts to grilled sausages can hang on your tree! Whether you are an aspiring chef, know someone who is, or just like to eat, you will find everything you need at La Cuisine.

  • PRIZE: One (1) $50 gift certificate to La Cuisine in Old Town Alexandria, VA.
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Sunday, December 9th at 11:59 pm EST.
  • AND THE WINNER IS: One lucky winner will be chosen by random.org and announced on Monday, December 10th, so be sure to come back then to see if you're the winner.
  • PRIZE REDEEMABLE: The gift certificate can be used in store and in person only.

On the third day of Christmas ... I would buy myself a good bread knife! I know it doesn't seem exciting .. but mine is horrible, but new good ones seem to be pricey .. and so I've deemed mine good enough .. but that would change if it became cheap/free!
12/6/2012 at 4:22 PM
On the third day of Christmas ... I would buy myself a nice magnetic knife bar (the cheap ones from Ikea don't work with quality/heavy knives)!

On the 3rd day of Christmas ---
I would use it to get my family gadgets. We have a tradition that my husband and I always give each other a new and different kitchen gadget for Christmas.
And I would get one of my children something to get him started in the kitchen- he loves to cook and is always coming up with something to create.

ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS... Easy: a Dutch oven. That item has been on my wishlist now for two years. Even better if I can afford a Le Creuset.

A springerle board to make the same anise-based cookies my great-grandmother and grandmother did.

ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS... I will give the gift card to my sister because she's the cooking connoisseur in our family. She makes the best butternut squash, mashed potatoes, and, of course, desserts during the holiday season. She would really enjoy the gift card and it's a plus because I haven't gotten her a Christmas gift yet!
