Just started thinking about some food we order by mail.
Foie gras and confit duck legs from D'Artagnan
Junior's cheesecake
Smoked turkey from gobblegobble.com a jewish smokehouse in Tyler Texas. Haven't actually tried the last, but ordered one for Christmas in Portland, OR with the children, I'll report afterwards.
Any other good sources?

In support of the local economy here, I'd say there are a number of places where you can mail order live lobsters.

Its not mail order but the crabs should be fine for Christmas while you is here.

The one item I wish I could find here in decent selection is Cheshire cheese. Americans are pretty dumb about cheese to begin with but Cheshire is nearly impossible to find. I was in heaven in a Tesco's in the Wirral! Going to the Cheese Fair in Chester would be extravagant.

For crying out loud man!!!!!! You just don't know when to STFU. I was thinking it but I wasn't going to say it. Sometimes you need to keep it to yourself. And you wonder why people don't react to you the way you think they should . . . I thought that was interesting. Course I had never heard of foie gras.

Harry and David's have traveled over some rough financial waters lately but they still offer a fine product. My parents always looked forward to the baskets.

I have a long running tradition with one of my brothers. He sends me something from Hickory Farms every year and I send him smoked salmon from here. My brother gets the best end of the deal, IMO.

Interesing, yes.After reading that, I think I'll pass on the foie gras, if an opportunity ever presents itself.

This stuff is getting pretty pricy, but the counrty hams and the German country hams are really good.

I get most of my stuff from local farmers, old fashioned farmers....I order mostly spices from Asia, Coffee from Hawaii and Vietnam.
