I'm flying out to Seattle and then road tripping for 17 days through Washington State, Montana and Portland, Oregon visiting four different sets of friends. They know I'm a food girl and they all rely on me to impress with the gift selection. I'm looking for some new ideas for treats to bring--it's got to travel okay since I'll be hauling around quite a bit and two of my visits don't fall until last the five days. Bagels are out except for the half dozen I'll carry on, since I can't fly with too many and they won't keep long enough to be worth the schlep. Katz's, Greenberg's treats, good rugelah, Gus's pickles, Jaques Torres chocolates....all done before. I'm looking for things they can't easily get out there.
Yeah...I realize that I'm a tough customer but hope some of you can inspire me.
Thanks in advance!!
