I am about to visit a friend who's father passed away this week. I'm not so familiar with the Jewish tradition but would be grateful if someone could suggest what foods would be appropriate to bring. As I will be going straight from work I'm looking for recommendations for something I could pick up on the way to her apartment in midtown. I know others will bring food as well so I would think it would be better to bring something that could last, I guess. But all I can think of on that front is more like cookies or cake, and I'm not sure that would be appropriate.
