I don't know if you can call lutefisk (sp?) a delicacy. If you ask me, it is only good if you eat something poisoned and you need syrup of ipecac and there isnít any available.

I agree their stuff is pretty good for off-the-shelf, except for those little chocolate donuts that seem to be covered in wax.

Also with you on bringing something the giftee likes rather than what you like. I'll send you my list.

No argument here, Charlie. But regarding local foods - the one time I visited your beautiful state I noticed loads of places selling native wild rice. Is that just a tourist come-on?

Mudbug, my wife loves wild rise. Me, I hate it. It is wild all right, but it ain't no rice. Brrrr...

You are right, it's not rice. Techically, it's a grass. I happen to like it, but to each his own.

For those of you in California, Have you had fresh picked avocado? How does it compare to store bought.
Oregon has some great products as well.

Wine (Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay)
Beer (Rogue, Widmeir Brothers, Deshutz, Full Sail)
Tillamook Cheese
Truffles
Mushrooms
Laughing Stock Pork
Yaquina Bay Oysters
Ponderosa Ranch Prime Beef or Buffalo

I also agree with JKath about the Haas avocados being the best.

I can get Widmer Bros just about anywhere and, in the summer, I keep it stocked up. They make some great commercials too.

RDG, they sell panettone here at Christmas time. I will have to look carefully to see if I can find one made in Milano to know that I am getting the right one!
