6th time’s a charm?

11 March, 2020: “Do you think we could pull off a jerk sandwich?” Chris wondered aloud in the car ride back from New York. This was back in September I think. Chris loves the flavors of jerk rubs—the Jamaican spice mixes that are used to rub meat before smoking them. And we’ve never played around with the wide and delicious… Read More

Rainbow carrot sandwich?

9 March, 2020: Queen’s Green Farm in Amherst called us a few weeks ago about a bumper crop of rainbow carrots. These carrots are beautiful – red, purple, orange, yellow, even white. We’ve been using them wherever we can. Carrot salads at lunch. Carrot marmalade at breakfast. Rainbows in your cruditĂ© cups. One other obvious place to put carrots? The… Read More

Mexicali testing updates

2 March, 2020: Our latest experimental sandwich is the Mexicali Mushroom – a Baja-fish-taco-inspired creation. If you come by KND any day after 11am we’re testing it there. So how is it faring? Customers are saying it’s the best thing they’ve ever had at Clover. Wow. Repeat purchase behavior is one of the big things we look for in a… Read More

End of Gonzo Test

27 February, 2020: David’s original version of the Gonzo Sandwich – Jan 14, 2020 Customers at CloverBBY are probably already aware, but we concluded our Gonzo Sandwich test last week. It unfortunately wasn’t selling as well as we’d hoped. David’s sandwich that he presented at food dev last month was AWESOME. Layers of thinly sliced, crispy seitan, tons of spices… Read More

Naming sandwiches

19 February, 2020: A new sandwich just started testing today at CloverKND. Chipotle mayo, cornmeal-battered crimini mushrooms, cabbage slaw, and a cilantro pesto that we all went wild for. The sandwich is from Jenny, an assistant manager in our kitchen who brought it to Food Dev recently. It’s based on the Baja-style fish tacos she loves to make at home.… Read More

Chris coming out with the hits – Mushroom Parm launching today

13 February, 2020: If you’ve been to Food Dev, chances are you’ve seen Chris Strange (last name used to distinguish him from Chris Anderson) sharing a food memory that he’s turned into a Clover sandwich idea. Most ideas we taste at Food Dev do not make it out of the Dev process, but Chris has been on fire lately! First… Read More

2200 lbs organic red cabbage for the chickpea fritter

7 February, 2020: Chris just sent us this picture with the text: “2200lbs organic red cabbage from red fire. Looks beautiful” Couldn’t agree more, Chris. We’ll be shredding, quick-pickling, and serving these up in our Chickpea Fritter. You might notice that the local stuff makes for an even more bright, vibrant sandwich. Thanks to the folks at Red Fire out… Read More
