Visiting a friend in France. Any food presents I can bring to stave off homesickness?
Hello. I hope the title of this thread isn't a turn-off. It's kind of an odd situation.
A good friend of mine is moving to northern France (Bethune) for the better part of a year, and she has most graciously invited me and my SO to visit and stay at her place. I am wondering if there is any easily transported foodstuff that might be commonplace in the US, but hard to find out where she is. Something homey and comforting like peanut butter or marshmallows, or maybe a pantry staple like sriracha (or other hot sauce) or canned goods.
Trouble is I don't have any idea what is (or isn't) available out there. I would appreciate any advice regarding what small gesture I can make to show my gratitude.
Thanks in advance.
