I am in Oakbrook this week on business. I'm staying over Friday, will have free time on Saturday. I'm looking for some suggestions for food souvineers I can take home to Nashville with me. The giftee is a chef who appreciates any and all food / cuisine. I just don't know much about what would be great exemplars that would be portable on a plane. Some sort of sausage from a great Italian or Polish market? And that's where my thought process ground to a halt. I also would like to avoid parts of town that are far away (I'll be flying out of Midway late Sat afternoon) or that require paying arm/leg for parking.
Looking forward to hearing your ideas!!
