Bringing kimchee through checked luggage- and other questions on traveling with food

dream75517 | Jul 23, 2007 12:57 AM

I'm currently attending school in New Orleans but I'm home for a couple of days- hip hip hooray for home cooked Korean food and Trader Joe's! I'd love to bring back some of my mom's kimchee gigae but I have no idea how I can transport it back to NO without it leaking or causing a stink! Also, I'd love to bring back some dairy products, frozen foods, and produce- but how can I pack it? Should I buy one of those large styrofoam coolers? It's only a 2.5 hour ride from NYC to NO but I wouldn't want anything to go bad or melt. Any suggestions?
