Buffalo Wings
ANCHOR BAR, BUFFALO
Though the origins of the Buffalo wing are murky, one credible legend has it that the bar food was invented at this watering hole when the founder's wife had to make something out of extra chicken wings. History aside, Anchor Bar's much-imitated preparation—with its crispy skin and vinegary, radioactive-looking sauce—is flash-frozen for shipping, so after you bake them for half an hour, they taste fresh from the fryer. $45.99 for 50, plus shipping; anchorbar.com

Muffuletta
CENTRAL GROCERY, NEW ORLEANS
The distinction of having invented New Orleans' best-liked sandwich, the muffuletta, hasn't inspired this dusty grocery to remodel. Yet the demand for its sublime concoction—a jumbo sesame-seed-dotted roll loaded with salami, ham, mortadella, provolone, and olive salad—has motivated the shop to ship. And travel improves the sandwich: The briny olive condiment seeps into the bread yet magically doesn't turn it to mush. $12.95 each, plus shipping; 504-523-1620

Sherman's Sure Choice Reuben Sandwich Kit
ZINGERMAN'S DELI, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN
People make pilgrimages to this unlikely culinary sanctuary in Ann Arbor to shop for specialty foods like Canadian goat butter. And they go there to eat the amazing Reuben, crafted from lush corned beef, melted Swiss, and coleslaw (their answer to sauerkraut) on artisanal rye—a holdover from the days when Zingerman's was only a local deli. At home, just butter the bread, pile on the fillings, throw your stacks in a pan, and try not to eat the bonus brownie dessert while they heat. $85 for the "Kit for 2," plus shipping; zingermans.com

Wet and Dry Ribs
CORKY'S RIBS & BBQ, MEMPHIS
With FedEx headquartered just 10 miles from the original Corky's, one of Memphis' top rib joints, you can live in the most barbecue-deprived corner of the land and still feast on some of the country's best fresh-smoked pig. Since the racks have already been cooked for eight hours over oak and hickory coals, all you have to do is coat them in the sweet-and-tangy sauce and warm them up—then convince your friends you have a smoker. $100 for three slabs, shipping included; corkysbbq.com
