A desperate call for help!
A dear, dear friend who grew up in Northern Italy -now lives in the Caribbean- will be stopping by briefly, probably won't be able to get even far from the airport.
I would like to surprise him with something Italian (not easy to find in the Caribbean), maybe something that's common in that part of Italy, something traditional.... I know nothing of Italy, though.
--Maybe not anything too stinky to avoid problems at the airport
--Maybe nothing too heavy or perishable for the same reason
Fellow chowhounders, I'd be grateful for any suggestions!!!!
