Need LA-centric food gift

Mandy Jul 3, 2010 09:41 AM

I would like to send something which reflects our city to a foodie friend in Singapore. Any ideas?

    I have friends in Paris who beg for boxes of See's Candy. Right now their Patriotic Gifts are out:


    And I always struggle not to eat entire boxes of Littlejohn's Toffee from the Farmer's Market:

              Something like http://compartes.stores.yahoo.net/ind... is a good possibility - if you don't want to send them a DVD of some "Hollywood" blockbuster that is... ;-D>
