Coffee from a father, coffee from a son

30 May, 2019: Remember the Ivan Molano coffee from Tandem? It turns out Ivan’s son, Jhon, is making coffee too. They grow coffee on the same land in Colombia. Has anyone tried one? Both? Who did it better, father or son? Read More

Adjectives that describe taste

13 April, 2019: I loved this. A group of advanced ESL students came to Food Dev the other week. They were studying adjectives, and their teacher is a big fan of Clover. Here’s hoping they tasted smokey, sour, infused, herbal, creamy, and savory – but not rubbery or burnt or plain! Read More

Tearing up the chickpea platter

12 April, 2019: Back in the truck days there were boats. A boat was for someone who didn’t want the bread with their chickpea fritter. You took a fry boat, swiped it with hummus, and added all the ingredients in a chickpea fritter. Sometimes when we ran out of bread, all items would become boats. Boats became platters when we… Read More

What is this?

11 April, 2019: Eggplant has not been perfect lately. We’ve seen over-frying, over-and-under salting, and not cutting to the proper thickness. So what does this have to do with improving eggplant at Clover? These are Eggplant measurers! If your eggplant fits in the second-largest slot, it’s been cut to the correct thickness. We have Chris Strange to thank for this… Read More

There’s a reason for that.… Read More

This is not Clover’s new videographer

14 March, 2019: This photo of Jane was taken in December. Doesn’t she look hopeful? We spent hours planning a video series about soup we planned to publish to Youtube. We woke up early, went to Lindentree Farm, said hi to Moira and Ari (farmers), gathered vegetables, and filmed Ayr chopping, seasoning, blending soup. The kids came home from school,… Read More
