What you want, when you want, where you want

11 September, 2020: When COVID hit I got the chance to step back and look at Clover in some very high-level ways. I realized something in those first few weeks that felt like a bit of a revelation for me.A Clover Meal costs approximately $10 If we take away the ability to choose from a range of options it would… Read More

Sharan is back!

8 September, 2020: As we say every year, a big thank-you to Sharan for coming up with this crowd favorite back when he was an intern in our kitchen. The Sharan is Sharan’s take on an Indochinese dish he grew up eating called Gobi Manchurian. A spicy, peppery, sweet spread, fried cauliflower, Napa cabbage slaw, and puffed rice noodles. You… Read More

Watch Ayr and the kids make gazpacho soup

24 August, 2020: We had a few issues with the Youtube stream, so we’re posting the gazpacho video here too. Sorry if you tried to watch but were unable to. If you’ve never had Gazpacho, it’s a Spanish chilled soup that’s perfect for this time of year. Tomatoes, onions, peppers, zero cooking. We’ve been making it ever since the truck… Read More

Chile peppers are in

19 August, 2020: Fruity, mild, spicy, sweet, savory. I didn’t know there were so many types of peppers until I visited Kitchen Garden Farm. If you signed up for a Seasonal Meal Box, you’ll see two surprises: Bulgarian Carrot Peppers (can you guess which ones those are?) and Trinidad Perfume Peppers. Thanks Tim and Caroline for growing these beautiful peppers!!… Read More

Rhubarb T-Shirt

11 May, 2012: This is a T-shirt I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Mostly because I love rhubarb so so much. But I’m not very happy with how it turned out. Notice how large the food icon is on most of our shirts. On this one it’s pretty tiny. Which is really too bad. I’ve also heard… Read More

Drinks come to the meal box program

Summer meal boxes are live

24 July, 2020: Since we can’t ask for your feedback in person, we’ve been doing online surveys of those of you who have bought Meal Boxes.

Help from the French

12 May, 2009: This is Thomas. He flew in from Paris to interview for a job. I told him before we came that this is a minimum wage position. He said OK. I said it again. He said OK. Thomas has been working at the Rose bakery in Paris (I’ll have to check it out next time I’m there), and… Read More

Can you help us?

22 July, 2020: Lucia, Ayr, and I were talking recently about older forms of marketing: posters, flyers, mailers, word of mouth. What people now call grassroots. And it made me wonder – we’ve been looking for a couple things lately – can our community provide? So I put out a couple of “calls for help” on social media this week.… Read More
