Food "Souvenirs" From Rome

I've really cut back on bringing food stuff back to the US because the USDof Agriculture at the airports (New York and Boston) can be a drag and they will search you if you say you're bringing any food - in jars, cans, sealed bags, etc - back with you.

In the past though, I always tried to bring home sun-dried tomatoes from Rome. The selection at the Campo dei Fiori is big. I prefer the Italian plum tomatoes. They also have imports and dried cherry tomatoes.

Out of print cookbook

Thanks. I know about the Hoepli edition, but I will check with Kitchen Arts in NYC. I know they're out of print but I'm looking for someone who has one who is willing to sell.....

Thanks, but I'm looking for the original published in the 1970's.

I am looking for a copy of "Calabria e Lucania In Bocca" . The author is Beppe Mallo and it was published in the 1970's by Il Vespro. Anyone have a copy they are willing to sell?
