What's the best chocolate chip cookie recipe?

The Cooks' Illustrated Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe (published May 1, 2009; available for free on their website) is nearly perfect. It's absolutely my favorite chocolate chip cookie--fresh from the oven or a few hours old (they never last longer than that!). People love these cookies. The browned butter really sends them over the top. I even sent step-by-step photo instructions in a care package for a baking-challenged friend so she could reproduce the results. Delicious.

Nothing too original: lamb stew with mashed potatoes

What would you want from Portland, OR?

A close relative is driving from Portland to visit me and has offered to bring along any thing I request. So: what should I ask for? The drive is roughly 12 hours. Obviously, food/drink are high on the list, and I want to ask for something that isn't available outside of the Portland area. Maybe some craft beer? I'll welcome your suggestions, so thanks!
