CODDLE & COSSET started in January, 2014 by Lindsay Clark in Vermont and continues today in Anchorage. 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 NYC working in non-profit food justice, a life-changing handful of years chocolatiering in Alaska, goat milk caramels on a Vermont mountain top, and specialty coffee and floral design in Pittsburgh. A decade’s worth of chocolate work continues today in Anchorage.
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.
