from the fantasies that play out in real life department, I'm meeting a bunch of serious foodies from Singapore and Malaysia in a few weeks, for what the group organizer calls a "food safari."
These folks are serious. I will be bringing small tins of Old Bay (they are serious about crab, too), and for one Asian beer expert, some sort of Natty Boh accessory.
Had been thinking of Berger cookies, but am not sure that they'll make the journey from BWI to a small, colonial Malaysian town.
So, any suggestions? It should be locally significant, light, relatively cheap, and travel very well.
Thanks. I'm sure you all will come up with something perfect!
