AirTravel with Deli Provisions

gangly handful | Mar 9, 2007 10:50 AM

Every year, I travel to Boston to watch the NCAA tourney with my friends. I always bring a heaping bag of provisions from my local Italian deli in Brooklyn: prosciutto, salami, marinated veggies, the works. I usually take the train or a bus. This year, I've found a very convenient and inexpensive flight. My only problem? I've never taken food like this on a plane. Can I carry it all on? My special concern is for the fresh mozzarella. Would this FAA consider this a gel?

Does anyone have any helpful techniques for bringing perishable food on a quick, 1-hr flight? I'd like to avoid checking my delicacies at all costs.
