Give Great Gifts: Cocotte, Old Saybrook


All your francophile friends will be thrilled with the gift offerings at Cocotte. Owners Isabelle & Jeffery have stocked up for the holidays with all manner of classic French goodies. Lucky for me, most of my family has a love affair with all things French, so this is a go-to for stocking stuffers: Angelina’s infamous hot chocolate (there is a reason for that endless line at their Paris shop) crafted from three types of chocolate, colorful soaps from Savon de Marseille, my favorite Pate de Fruits and Caramel du Sel, Kusmi Tea, stocking-size jars of chocolate fondue and all manner of biscuits and chocolates in nostalgic giftable tins (a favorite is the Renault!). Have brunch before or after shopping and indulge in this crazy Raclette. So festive.
Plus, there’s still time to order a Buche de Noel.
323 Main Street, Old Saybrook
