Coddle & Cosset is moving! 

Late spring 2018 Coddle & Cosset is relocating back to its chocolatiering homeland of Alaska.  To start, truffles can be found at the Spenard Farmers' Market starting mid-June.  Come say hello: 26th & Spenard, Saturdays 9am-2pm.

The Chocolate Club will continue in the autumn!  If you were a Pittsburgh subscriber, you'll now be a shipping recipient, if you were an Alaska shipper, you'll now be able to pick up locally.  If you live elsewhere, you won't notice a thing, except maybe some new, fun Alaskan ingredients.

Cos-set (verb): 1. care for and protect in an overindulgent way.  2. (n) a pet, especially a pet lamb.

Cod-dle (verb):  1. treat in an indulgent or overprotective way.  2. cook (an egg) in water below the boiling point.

 

CODDLE & COSSET started in January, 2014 by Lindsay Clark in Vermont and continues today in Pittsburgh.  Lindsay grew up in Wisconsin and later earned a BA in Human Ecology in Maine; her culinary education is largely of the learn-as-you-earn variety.  A 2002 stint making and selling home-made bread at the Missoula farmers' market launched years of food work: organic vegetable farming, baking, cheesemaking, goat husbandry, more baking, a twirl in non-profit food justice, goat milk caramels as far as the eyes can see, some third-wave coffee action, and a formative, life-changing 5 years chocolatiering in Alaska.

The truffles of Coddle & Cosset reflect each of these chapters, as well as their creator, their home, and the season. 

SO WHY "Coddle & Cosset"?  One is for the philosophy and technique Lindsay brings to her truffling, in which each is an individual, a work of art, a little bird.  The other speaks to the act of eating and/or gifting a bundle of chocolate borne of such attention and affection.
