Food/Shopping to haul back on the plane!

jsnyder262 | Jan 3, 2011 08:35 AM

Greetings. I am coming to NYC for a couple days at the end of the week. Been a few years since my last visit. My question for those of you privledged to live in the greatest city on earth (IMO) - if you no longer lived there - what food/items would you haul back with you on the plane? Obviously - they have to be somewhat non-perishable for travel. I'll have my cooler bag and I pack agressively. I haul wine from all over the place in my bag as well as other items.

For instance - when I travel to SF - I always get cheese from Cowgirl Creamery (Mt. Tam for those that care), Chocolate from Recchiuti (Ginger Heart Squares are literally the best chocolate I've ever had and I don't care much for Chocolate). When I hit Philly I get Marinara from Tuluttos.

I already plan to hit Eately as Italy itself is our favorite international destination and the food scene in Denver (where I now live) is a bit lacking.

Thank you in advance for any advice. I'd love to someday form a list like this. When in this city - hit these places to eat and buy these items and haul them because you can only get them here....
