Welcome to a brand new feature here on Brown Eyed Baker – Free Food Friday!

A local sports talk radio station here in Pittsburgh frequently has “free beer Fridays” on their show, giving away cases of beer to listeners each Friday. I thought it would be fun to do something similar here, but with food, of course. What better way to kick off the weekend than with some free food?! To start off, I’ll be running the feature every other Friday and introducing you to some of my favorite food finds – some you may know of, and some may be new to you. Here’s to some fun food giveaways on Fridays!

First up this week is a company local to Pittsburgh – Giant Eagle Market District. Giant Eagle is the major local supermarket chain here, and in recent years they have opened souped-up versions of their stores, called Market District. The stores include expanded produce, deli, cheese and bakery sections. They also have a massive cafe, a prepared foods area and a bulk foods section that will make you weak in the knees. Market Districts also host a lot of fun cooking demonstrations and are generally a foodie paradise. One of their new products is a Himalayan Salt Brick, which you use to cook on – like a baking stone, but it’s salt! Salt that’s hundreds of millions of years old. How cool is that?! I took one of the bricks for a test drive on the grill, and it was definitely as fun as it looks like it might be. The food tasted amazing, and had a fabulous, subtle seasoning.

Giant Eagle Market District wants to share an awesome rosemary shrimp recipe with you, which is perfect for one of these Himalayan Salt Bricks:

Even better, they are giving away a gift package that includes one of these bricks, as well as other goodies to get you ready for grilling season! See below for the details, and how to enter!

  18. Megan on June 15, 2012 at 9:00 am

    Fun to see a local giveaway-I do most of my shopping at the Market District in the South Hills and realize how spoiled that makes me when I go to other grocery stores. My favorite thing to grill is corn on the cob or other veggies!

    Our favorite thing from the grill is definitely homemade pizza!

  60. Jeannie on June 15, 2012 at 10:29 am

    Beer Brats! We get the huge store-made brats, poke holes in them, soak them in our homemade beer for 12-24 hours, and grill them. You don’t get much of the beer flavor, but they drip juices when you bite into them. Mmmm.

  61. Jen H. on June 15, 2012 at 10:29 am

    My favorite thing to grill as kabobs! Squash, marinated beef, onions, maybe some corn besides…yumm!
