I'm visiting my friend and his family in the Bay Area around Christmas time and would love to bring an edible gift with me from New York. The food gift doesn't have to be distinctly "New York," but it would be nice to bring something that is unique and maybe not so easily found in CA. Lox and bagels come to mind, but my friend doesn't really like them. And after considering Shake Shack and Gray's, I've relented to the sad fact that burgers and hot dogs won't travel so well in my carry-on...HELP!
(Note- They aren't *technically* my in-laws, but they possess the in-law "spirit" and a food blog is no place for the finer details of my love life!)
