Help....Dessert for gifts?

I need suggestions for a client with a sweet tooth. Last time I loaded them up with treats from Momofuku Milk bar which they loved. They've also had treats from Kyotofu. The treats have to be able to travel, no cream. Thank you for your help!!!

  1. Look into the treats at Epicerie Boulud and Bouchon Bakery.

    The DKA and canelés at Dominique Ansel might also worth considering though you may need to package those yourself.

    Are you mailing or hand-carrying these items?

    1. Macarons from Dominique Ansel or Ladurè... They always make a nice gift as they come in fancy boxes..

      1. If you have access to a Lebanese market, the small pastries which have honey, nuts,pistachios, are very nice to receive as a gift.

          For this look to Turkey: try Gulluoglu Baklava & Cafe

        2. You can do babka (chocolate or cinnamon) from Zabar's, butter cookies from Veniero's, macarons from Financier.
