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.
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.
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.
