On this week's Ask the Critic, Carey recommended the best travel-ready food for a host gift:

The most important consideration for any gift, of course, is the lucky gift-ee. Is she the kind of person who would squeal over six vividly hued Ladurée macarons? (They're very giftable, if very pricey.) Or the kind who would prefer the towering, gut-busting cookie monsters at Levain?

See all her picks here.

Have a question of your own you want answered? Email with the subject line Ask the Critic to submit your question. All emails will be read, but unfortunately not all can be answered. We look forward to hearing from you!
