In 1985 Jean Jacques and Anne left France and came to America with only a few dollars in their pockets but an abundance of skill and ambition. Once here, they worked for a wholesale French bakery, Disney World, and a number of hotels and restaurants in Orlando, Florida. Four years later they moved north to open an authentic French patisserie in Duxbury and in 1991 opened a second patisserie in Cohasset. In 1995, they sold the Duxbury bakery to their partners.
An integral part of Cohasset Village, French Memories has been a favorite gathering spot for over 30 years. The Gabanelle’s are grateful to the community for their support.
“French Memories is a well-loved local institution — an authentic French bakery in downtown Cohasset. The village wouldn’t be as charming without it.” (Joan Wilder, Boston Globe © 2011)
French Memories is a family owned and operated business: Master Chef Jean Jacques Gabanelle, Anne and their family run the bakery.CONACT US
