Pancake flop

7 April, 2021: We sent out a few Maple Boxes late in March with double the correct amount of dry pancake mix. This was a bummer because 1.) our Maple Box was hugely popular and 2.) when made right our pancakes are delicious! If you were one of the folks who got the incorrect mix and made pancakes before we… Read More

Clover x Winter Moon Roots

3 April, 2021: Try a meal box next week Despite what the display at your local grocery store tells you, the first sign of spring in New England isn’t asparagus or strawberries. It’s parsnips. But not just any parsnip. These are Spring Dug. On the outside they’re gnarly looking, with a sprout of green at the top. On the inside, they’re sweeter than… Read More

Pita oven finally gets to make something other than pita

1 April, 2021: Hot cross buns are yeasted, raisin buns historically eaten on Good Friday, so they have a special place in our Easter Box (btw if you haven’t ordered yet, you have about 7 more hours!). As our Meal Box program has grown, Chris has found some creative ways to keep up with the demand. This week our dough… Read More

Make our Easter Dutch Baby at home

30 March, 2021: I can’t tell you how magical it is to make this at home. For those of you too far away from Boston to order our Easter meal box, here’s the recipe for the batter that will come ready-made inside all Easter boxes. We’ll also be including roasted golden oyster mushrooms and a pecorino cream sauce that you… Read More

Confit root veggies for Easter

29 March, 2021: Chris was experimenting with items for our Easter Box, thinking like a rabbit, getting to play with all these beautiful roots that Michael Docter has been keeping safe for us in his barn. He was thinking about the technique called confit. This is used mostly for meat—where you slowly cook a piece of meat in its own… Read More

Last chance for Maple Box!

26 March, 2021: Growing up in Texas, maple was this magic thing that only came around once a year, in the form of maple sugar candy that would appear under the Christmas tree. When I moved to Boston and started working at Clover I learned about sugar shacks, and the temporary restaurants that pop up to serve the new syrup… Read More

Why is Barry boiling water?

23 March, 2021: We are always so happy when Rabbi Dolinger stops by. Today the reason was Passover. Barry was at the HUB beginning the process of kashering the kitchen for Passover prep. If you’ve been following along with our meal boxes, you might have noticed that we just sold out of Passover boxes. We made the decision to make… Read More

The BBQ Seitan Sandwich is back at lunch today!

23 March, 2021: If you’re from Texas, there’s a smell you know deep in your heart. You smell it when you get off the plane, because there’s literally a BBQ joint in the airport. It’s the smell of low and slow, burnt ends, brisket, smoke and sauce. BBQ Seitan is back! Our BBQ Sandwich and Platter are inspired by Texas… Read More

The Venezuelan Plantain Sandwich is back!

2 March, 2021: Get yours on March 3! Sweet plantains, crunchy rice, creamy slaw, and the best black bean spread. The Venezuelan Plantain is back Wednesday March 3rd at lunch! In 2015, our friend Andrea grew a crop of local black beans in Hadley, MA. These beans taste better, cook faster, and benefit the soil by adding back nutrients that other crops take away. So we… Read More

Farewell Scott!

26 February, 2021: We’re losing a really wonderful part of the Clover family today, but the good news is you might be gaining a new sharp friend in your kitchen. If you’ve eaten at CloverLMA you probably know Scott and chances are, he knows you (and your family’s names) too. Scott came to us from Wisconsin, via stints in fine… Read More
