Bay Area Food Gifts for Friends in Eastern Europe?

Maya | May 24, 2004 11:11 AM

I'll be traveling in Eastern Europe this summer and want to bring my hosts some great presents, representing some of the unique foodstuffs here. I can't bring wine, and I have brought them dried apricots and pistachios in the past. The countries I'm visiting are more depressed economically than Eastern Europe, but some have just made it into the EU (in other words, they have access to much of the same things as Western Europe).

Anyone have any ideas of things to bring from here that would represent California and the Bay Area in particular, that would be relatively easy to transport?

Thank you!!
