Everything tastes better outside (meet the Weekend Adventure Box!)

Meet the Weekend Adventure Box. Our dream getaway weekend of breakfast tacos, brats around the fire, hearty chili, fluffernutters, s’mores and drinks filled with local fruit. Ideal for cabins, van camping, backyards, or anywhere you have access to a cooler, basic cooking equipment, and a heat source. Everything in the box is hearty, delicious, playful, treads lightly on our natural resources and best of all, comes together in minutes with very limited prep (the recipe card even includes campfire cooking instructions!) For a whole weekend, all your meals are taken care of. So you can really and truly relax.

We’ll have a limited number of Weekend Adventure Boxes for pickup or free delivery on Thursdays and Friday in June so we recommend reserving now for the weekend that works best for you! Only seven dates available: 6/3, 6/4, 6/10, 6/11, 6/17, 6/24, 6/25.

📢 EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT – starting June 3 we are DOUBLING our delivery area to a 50 mile radius of 1075 Cambridge St, and just for the summer we’ll be delivering to the Cape on Fridays and Saturdays!!! So whether you’re in Worcester or Wellfleet, Taunton or Provincetown, Falmouth or Newburyport—we’ve got you covered!

What’s in the Weekend Adventure box? 

Don’t worry about cooking. Instead heat up our chili made with locally grown beans and nixtamalized corn (hominy), and slather some honey butter on Chris’s scallion cheddar cornbread made with locally-milled Plimoth corn and 1-year aged Grafton.

In the morning, use a campfire or stovetop to heat up these easy-to-assemble Potato, Egg, and Cheese breakfast tacos, made with Mi Tierra Tortillas, Grafton cheddar, and Mid-Isle Farm potatoes. Add a hit of guajillo chile salsa the way they do in the Texas Hill Country, wrap them in foil, and head out.

When you’re halfway to that beautiful vista but need some protein to fuel your path, open up these yummy pita pockets that you’ve filled with our creamy tofu egg salad, lettuce and pickles for crunch. on the side, a protein-packed farro salad laced with dill and feta.

We don’t want any dehydrated hikers, swimmers, or readers out there, so we’re packing full servings of locally grown fruit into your hydration kit. Even the smallest boxes will get a whole quart each of seasonal agua fresca and lemonade! Rhubarb is in, and as soon as local strawberries come up (not quite yet, but hopefully in a few weeks!), we’ll be making Strawberry Lemonade.

You can’t have a cabin weekend without s’mores! We’re giving you chocolate bars, graham crackers, and vegan marshmallows (conventional ones contain gelatin, these are gelatin-free), plus house-made blondies! 

Carrot lox are back!! Perfect for a (lazier) morning at the cabin. A customer favorite from our Snowed In Box last winter, this bagel spread has sourdough bagels from Forge, capers, tomatoes, and Chris’s own cashew cream cheese and carrot lox that could even make a New York deli do a double take. All you’ll need is a knife and a way to toast your bagels.

You can’t have a cabin weekend without this classic American meal! We’re packing you our favorites:  original brat sausages from Beyond Meat, plus locally made buns and simple fixings: ketchup, mustard, oh, and the turmeric onions we loved so much from our Star Wars Box.

Don’t be the one lagging behind – fuel yourself up with our favorite trail treats! Perfect for making at say, 10am, after someone in the group has made everyone get up at 6am to start hiking. We’ll give you everything you need to make Maple Fluffernutters, including house-made fluff, as well as trail mix. 

Use your campfire (or a more conventional heat source) to heat up these potatoes from Mid-Isle Farm (pre-baked in our kitchen to help speed things up). Then load them up with sour cream, sunflower seed pesto, and shredded Grafton cheddar. Wrap in foil for an old-fashioned hand warmer for cold nights! 

What’s the difference between a Sloppy Joe and a Sloppy Chris? Well, these are made by Chris in our kitchen, and they are made with lentils instead of beef. They were a big hit with kids and adults alike in our Super Bowl Box a few months ago, and they’re perfect for dinner on the last night when you’re already reminiscing about how much fun you had this trip. 

PS: Special shoutout to Stacia and Samara on our team who had the idea to do a camping-themed box, and Jack and his friends Cricket & Coleman who took the prototype box out on a test run, and came back with these fun photos!

I’m writing to share some news: we’ve decided to permanently close CloverROW, our outpost in the Assembly Row neighborhood of Somerville. The closure of this restaurant is part of the whole company’s focus on reaching financial sustainability and positioning us for future growth. These decisions are really hard, but they’re necessary steps for us to simplify Clover. And, happily, all the amazing staff at CloverROW, including the manager Joe, will be able to move into other Clover restaurants. The math is straightforward…

These sweet potato latkes date back to early days on the Clover food truck. They’re so yummy and the sweet potatoes lend them such a fun golden color. They’re probably the most popular item in our Hanukkah Meal Box, which you can get delivered on December 7th. Inside the box you’ll find:

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. We will be closed Thursday 11/23 at all locations. For our kitchen team, it will be a good chance to rest after prepping a ton of Brussels casseroles for our Thanksgiving Box : ) As for the days surrounding Thanksgiving, we’ll be open normal hours, except for CloverFIN (Financial District) and CloverHSC (Harvard Science Center) which will be closed tomorrow and Friday. CloverHSQ (Harvard Square) will be closing early (at 8pm) tomorrow.

I’m not a big believer in multitasking (which, in my experience, is doing a bunch of things simultaneously and badly.) But there’s a lot going on at Clover right now, so I had to break my No Multitasking Rule on Wednesday. I asked Michele and Greg on our Finance team if they’d mind if I took myself off video during a meeting to review Accounts Payable. “I have to draw a cartoon Delicata Squash,” I explained, reasonably.

Some of you have been asking for a sides-only box – and it’s true, sides are the best part, aren’t they? We’re making a limited number of boxes with mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and King Brussels’ Casserole. Each Sides Box serves 6-8 people and can be delivered to your door for 11/21 or 11/22.

The moment you’ve waited for is here. Western Mass Brussels sprouts are back in the restaurants, which means the King himself has landed! What’s on this glorious sandwich and why is it the King of all seasonal sandwiches? A dijon-mayo spread, smoked Grafton cheddar, fried Brussels tossed with za’atar (a Middle Eastern spice blend), pickled red cabbage, and toasted hazelnuts.

On Friday we had a company meeting with all our leadership to talk about a decision we’ve made about the future of Clover. We are all focused on putting Clover on solid financial footing so we can continue to make the food you love for many years to come. COVID changed everything for restaurants like us. The way we eat, drink, work, and get together has shifted substantially and, while Clover has seen a steady recovery in sales…

Julia here. Today, October 29, is Clover’s birthday! 15 years of perfect pita, crispy chickpea fritters, countless sandwiches that cycle with the seasons, and of course the occasional birthday cupcake. How lucky are we? Although I’ve been working at Clover for a year and a half, this was my first week as CEO. I’m excited and honored to be stepping into this role. I’ve been a Clover enthusiast for a long time – since my first taste of a Blue Oyster Mushroom sandwich as a grad student in 2013. As COO and now as CEO…

If you stop by tomorrow (Friday 10/27) around 11am, you might be treated to a bit of Clover history in the form of a carrot cupcake with buttercream frosting. One per paying customer, while they last! And they may not last long : )

A bunch of you have been asking, and yes, we are doing a Thanksgiving Box menu again this year, with all the favorites from years past – Hubbard Squash glazed with maple-Sriracha butter, mashed potatoes, gravy, Ayr’s dad’s walnut-mushroom patè, stuffing – there’s even a limited run of Petsi pies. Free delivery to your door if you’re within 30 miles of us. Click here to reserve yours.

I’ve recently asked somebody who believes in Clover as much as I do to step into the CEO role. Julia Wrin Piper has been Clover’s COO for the past 18 months and will take over running the company day-to-day. I’ll be shifting my efforts to provide support for Julia and the team, work on growth opportunities, and pursue partnerships that will amplify Clover’s mission. I’ll remain a member of the Board of Directors and active as an advisor and mentor. Clover is facing a potent mix of opportunity and challenge right now and I know Julia is exactly the right person to lead the team through these twists and turns.

On 10/29 Clover will turn 15 years old. It’s been 15 years since we first pulled up a tiny white food truck to the MIT campus in hopes of testing a menu that could make a dent in global warming. Since then we’ve supported so many local farmers; had tons of adventures on board trucks and restaurants; and met tons of wonderful customers. And most of all we’ve made food. Lots and lots of food. In honor of our 15th birthday, we sent out a survey asking you about your favorite LONG-LOST MENU ITEMS. We’ve picked the top results and we’re going to bring them back for one day only – in the form of a Birthday Meal Box!
