Best foodie gifts?

Little Cupcake Aug 25, 2008 12:14 PM

Hi,

I want to make a care package for my friend who has just moved to St Thomas. She complains that the food is so expensive there, so she has just been buying the basics (eggs/bread, etc). I'm looking for some interesting non-perishable food that I can mail to her. What do you recommend?

    a small bottle of very good balsamic. It's good to drizzle on all the local fruits and vegetables. It may not be available at all in St. Thomas.

        Send her a gift package from Zingerman's. Some of their items are perishable, but most are not.
