easy to transport NY food gift ideas
I normally bring rugelach and mini black and white cookies when I travel abroad for work. Any other suggestions for some variety (no chocolate, as it's already plentiful where I'm going)? In addition to being something that travels well (i.e., needs to clear Security and Customs), whatever it is should serve, say, up to 40 or so people, and stay fresh for a couple of days. Finally, extra points for things *special* to NY. Oh, and would prefer something not particularly extravagant or costly.
Thanks for any recommendations.
Bagels are very New York, but after a couple of days they won't taste very good. How about something like Zabar's Russian coffee cake? I think it's actually better after it's slightly stale and a little goes a long way -- very dense. It comes in pre-wrapped chunks but you could probably inquire about a larger piece, wrapped well for travel.
