Christmas comes early for Vincenzo

12 December, 2012: The Clover holiday party is around the corner. We have to make food we grew up eating around the holidays. My family is from Calabria, so the past two years I have made my mom’s traditional Italian cookies. This turns Clover into a butter, almond, sugar, flour factory for 9 intense hours. I asked Ayr if I… Read More

BPL closed 10/20/12

19 October, 2012: Due to weather, we’re going to close our truck at Boston Public Library tomorrow. The BPL location is one site for our DEV truck. If there are any customers out there reading who come to this location on Saturdays, what do you think about it? We have been debating about it for the rest of the year.… Read More

No GOV truck Friday 9/28

27 September, 2012: This goes out to all of you devoted City Hall customers that come to our truck every Friday for breakfast and lunch. Tomorrow only: we’re not going to be running the truck there tomorrow. You can blame this lowboy (the refrigerated sandwich station). It isn’t cooling below 70 degrees. If we put food in it, the food… Read More

Let me explain

4 June, 2012: That’s the view you might have seen last Friday. Yep, no Clover truck. So let me explain. Last Monday the MIT truck generator died at 7am, right as we were gearing up for a busy day. I was left with a few options so I chose to use the DEV truck in MIT’s place. I rushed the… Read More

Isaac

5 April, 2012: This is Isaac, the first in Clover’s Berklee dynasty. Isaac really stood out in his interview back in September. He’s awesome at everything –  he’s the one responsible for making all of MIT soups in the morning. This picture? When we ran out of coffee, he ran to Voltage and convinced them to loan us a bag.… Read More

Clover at Cochon 555

2 April, 2012: You might be asking what’s Clover doing at a heritage pork competition? Cochon 555 was the other weekend. It stands for 5 pigs, 5 chefs, 5 wines. We were the “vegetable break” alongside all the pork. We had a blast. Chris, Justin, and I prepped for about 7 hours, met up with Brett at the Mandarin Oriental… Read More

Kendall barbershop

1 April, 2012: That pole signifies one of my favorite places in Kendall Square. It’s rare at MIT when we’re really ahead, prepared, organized, and clean going into lunch. We prep so much from scratch in the mornings, that we always have a ton to do. But some days we’ll get an easy soup to make. Miso soup takes less… Read More

Hot Truck

27 March, 2012: This is our hood vent. It sucks in all hot air from our oven and fryer, and blows it out of the top of the truck through a ventilation system. Which means everyone hates it in the winter, because it removes all the heat, but you have to love it in the summer. It stopped working at… Read More
