When it comes to that impossible-to-buy-for friend or family member, consumables are the perfect answer. Here’s a list of delights that supports local, too.
The Food Crate: Chef-created meal delivery from the highest quality ingredients (this sesame-crusted tuna was my favorite!).
Better Rhodes: Whether you’re considering Dry January or just like to enjoy a cocktail sans alcohol (and much lower calorie), this genius service in Madison curates the best of the mocktails and faux beer. betterrhodes.com
Cato Corner Farm: This renowned farmstead cheesemaker in Colchester will deliver monthly installments of their award-winning Bloomsday, Womanchego, Black Ledge Blue and more. www.catocornerfarm.com

Fat Stone Farm: Our preferred topping for Christmas morning pancakes tapped in our very own town of Lyme.
Ashlawn Farm Coffee: My dad lives in New Orleans, arguably a hot spot for good coffee, but he drinks nothing but Ashlawn Farm’s Ethiopian coffee. Me, I’m a French Roast girl. Roasted in Old Saybrook. farmcoffee.com
