My parents live in Fresno, while I live here in LA. I go home to visit about twice a month, and typically like to take home some part of LA for them to enjoy. For example, I took a cookie basket from MILK last visit. The visit before that, Zankou Chicken (which didn't last the 3 hour trip... by the time I got home, it tasted like regular rotisserie chicken. The garlic paste, though, was still sublime.)
My question is, chowhounders, is what do you think would be a novel and thoughtful food item to take home that might be capable of lasting the three hour trip home?
I wish I could take Pinks or Langers, but there is just no way that they could last the three hour trip.
