Tips for bringing back cheese, chorizo, on long flights?

Thanks for the detailed replies everyone! Every time I've gone to Europe, I've just eaten it there, never attempting to bring it back on my long layovers! Next time, i'm going for it!

Tips for bringing back cheese, chorizo, on long flights?

I should have been more specific--tips on laws are appreciated, but the question is more focused on how well these sorts of food keep.

The Wine Cellar on Mass Ave.

I was also disappointed. The food took forever to come, and we ordered Raclette thinking we were going to get it served with the little Raclette machine. Instead, the cheese came already on the food, half-way melted and cold.

I haven't had the other meals, and the place is very cozy. At least the place gets an A the romantic environment

Raclette Craving

I bought a raclette grill on Amazon (the Hamilton is $80) and my French friends have told me it's perfectly good.

Attention cheesehounds: French Rocquefort is now $35 per pound at my market...

I would agree malibumike's comment on the Trader Joe Rocquefort. I love french cheese but I can barely afford to eat the amount that I want! The Rocquefort at Trader Joe's is the best bang for your buck if you are looking for a taste of France. My experience with Gorgonzola is hit or miss. Unfortunately, I haven't found an inexpensive one that Iiked.

Tips for bringing back cheese, chorizo, on long flights?

Hi everyone,

I've read some really interesting posts on the types of foods people have brought through airport security, but I can't seem to find any posts detailing how to keep these foods fresh.

Could any of you could provide tips on traveling with cheeses, chorizo, or hams? How long will these items last? What if you don't have a cooler?

Dinner Near Lenox in Boston

That's interesting because I go to the Petit in Kenmore all the time. The staff is very friendly, and you can even dine by yourself at the bar downstairs and watch them make the desserts. My favorite thing to do is to sit at the bar and order a glass of wine and the pan seared fois gras (they'll recommend an excellent pairing for the liver) I know that the Petit in Kenmore was the first, and then the one in the South End was built second. Maybe you would have a better experience at one of those?

What's good at Orinoco?

I would also recommend the dates and the Arepa with the fresh cheese

Still in search of Som-Tum (Green Papaya Salad )

I would also strongly recommend S&I. I routinely get their Som Tum.
