Local Foods for a gift
I am going to visit my friend who moved from Austin to NYC. I will be her houseguest for a few days and want to take her some local goodies she may be missing. What local food items (from shops or restaurants) should I take? They must be things I can take on a plane.
Hudson's on the Bend sauces are unique. Austin's Best hot sauce. If it's the right time of year and you have a little room a mini-basket of Stonewall peaches. Pure Luck goat cheese (in NYC obviously they can get great cheese, but I think Pure Luck is excellent). And, not food, but if they enjoyed the restaurant maybe the cookbook from Fonda.
Ruby's BBQ/Stubb's BBQ sauce, Austinuts,Kerbey Ln pancake mixes,these are just a few things that come to mind. If you go to Breed & Co. (two locations - one on 29th and Guadalupe and the other Bee Caves (?)) the folks in the housewares area can help you out/direct you as they kinda specialize in that sort of thing and carry a lot of local stuff like Hudson's on the Bend sauces and what not.
