Introducing the Clover Passover Box!

Passover is just around the corner! We’re so excited to be collaborating with our dear friend Rabbi Barry Dolinger of Congregation Beth Sholom to create a deep, rich, springtime spread of dishes that are great for one big seder or many smaller meals throughout a week. 

Bitter endive dressed with honey. Bright orange romesco. Deep red borscht. Fluffy potatoes—Chris is even making vegetarian chopped liver inspired by a survey we did of your favorite Passover food memories. A nod to the past, a celebration of tradition, a hopeful look to the future. 

And at the center of it all: matzo on a mission, baked the old way at Mitzvah Matzos using Maine Grains flour, with proceeds going to fight modern slavery (in the form of human trafficking).

This softer, more traditional matzo is finding its way into a luscious mushroom pâté enriched with Rhode Island Mushrooms and Grafton cheddar, perfect covered in lots of gravy…and since we’re in New England, there’s even Maple Matzo Fluffernutters! 

Every item in this meal box, from your first sip of soup to your last bite of flourless chocolate cake, is Kosher for Passover — we want to thank Barry for helping Chris and our kitchen team do the hard work to get there with no added cost to you all!

All items are heat-and-eat or require minimal prep (5-10 minutes) to get on the table. 

Attention! Extremely limited slots!
Order now to secure your spot for pickup or delivery on March 25 or 26. 
Don’t forget to add extra matzo and Kosher wine to complete your order.


What’s inside the Passover Box?

On sale now. Available 3/25 and 3/26. Free delivery within 30 mile radius of Cambridge!

LET’S EAT MATZO!

Matzo Fluffernutter Kit

  • 1 container almond butter
  • 1 container Clem’s maple fluff
  • 2 slices of soft wheat Mitzvah Matzo (the matzo company that Barry and his wife Naomi run in RI). Though this soft style may seem non-traditional, it in fact more accurately represents how Jews celebrated Passover for most of Jewish history. This is not the cracker-like matzo you might be used to. As Barry says, “it’s not your bubbie’s matzo—it’s your bubbie’s bubbie’s matzo.” Included in your box: a special note to Clover customers from Barry about the history of soft matzo.
  • Make maple matzo fluffernutters by heating the matzo and adding nut butter and maple fluff!
  • (Note – an earlier version of this menu had peanut butter listed, which we have since changed to almond butter)

Appetizers for your seder table

  • 1 container romesco dip
  • 1 container chopped liver (meatless of course, Chris is working his usual magic again)
  • 1 pot chopped hardboiled eggs (yummy with chopped liver)
  • 1 container raw veggies for dipping
  • Anticipate needing more matzo to make soup or to have during your seder? We’re offering packs of Mitzvah Matzo as a supplemental item—be sure to add to your order before you check out.

  • 1 bottle orange-honey-white-wine vinaigrette

(Note: all 3 menus are included with every box! No need to pick and choose – this is just our suggested method of breaking up the dishes into separate meals if you are eating the box over the course of a week instead of eating it all together as one big feast)

DESSERT: CHOCOLATE CAKE // PASSOVER APPLE MOUSSE

  • Flourless chocolate cake (1 tray)
  • Passover Apple Mousse (apple compote with orange-cinnamon white chocolate mousse – 2 jars)

(Note: portions described here are for the 2-person box. Menu scales proportionally for our 4, 6, 8, and 10-person boxes)

Need more matzo? How about Kosher wine for your seder? We’ve got the good stuff, both red and white : )

PS. Do you have friends in Rhode Island who you think might like a Passover Box? We are doing a special pickup in Providence on March 25 – orders for that can be placed here!

PPS. Here is a note from R Dolinger, hope this helps address some Passover-related questions!

About a year and a half ago, at an open-to-the-public food development meeting at Clover, we blind taste-tested a new plant-based pulled pork. This wasn’t a totally new thing for us to do—as a company with a climate mission, we tend to get a lot of samples of plant-based everything, and we love trying all of them. We’ve tried mycelium-based mushroom meats, wheat-and-soy nuggets, and burgers made from kelp. One bite in, and it was clear this pulled pork was special.

Squeaky paneer, mint cilantro chutney, chaat, and our first-ever collab with a local chef. Remember when Pushpir came into the kitchen and schooled us on Northern Indian food? That was 2013. A different CloverHSQ than the one you visit today (back then we were at 7 Holyoke St, across the street from where Kevin and his team now serve you). I still remember the smell of the cilantro, mint, jalapeños, and orange juice Pushpir was blending in the Vitamix. We hadn’t smelled that exact combo before…

This week has been a flurry of preparations as we kick off the 2024 food truck season. We did an event at Tufts over the weekend, in a few days we’ll be selling breakfast and lunch at a conference at the Media Lab at MIT, and this weekend we’ll be pulling up to a private party with sandwiches and appetizers.

Every year, just after Valentine’s Day, we start getting the same question in from customers: Will there be a Passover Box this year? Sometimes the pleas are more direct, sometimes more colorful. The glories of the vegetarian Chopped Liver are a common theme. This year, Sarah, an NYC-based friend of mine said she’s spent so much time thinking about the emails describing last year’s box that she’s DRIVING UP TO BOSTON to claim one!

We have a new sandwich out everywhere today. It’s a take on a Buffalo Chicken sandwich. We use celery root, aka celeriac, this nobbly, gnarled joy of a winter vegetable. We cut it into planks, batter it with panko, and fry it. We’re getting ours from Norwich Meadows Farm, a farm in NY state that’s known for creating really flavorful organic veggies using a cool irrigation system.

For the week of Valentine’s Day, we’ll be delivering these Making Whoopie (Pie) Kits 😉. They have everything you need to make whoopie pies — more specifically, Chris’ favorite oatmeal cakes with beet buttercream frosting. You’ll also get a scoop for making the perfect size pie, and a roll of sugar cookie dough for more sweet fun.

Pull out your plaid and cue up the bagpipes because it’s Clover’s third-ever celebration of Burns Night, an introduction to Scottish food/drink/music/poetry and a reason to raise a glass during this dark and cold month! You may be asking yourself, what is Burns Night?

Chances are you’ve tried the new Clover Bowls. We’ve been running them since the Spring. After a few tweaks, we landed on a roster we love: the Mediterranean Bowl, the Verde Rice and Bean Bowl, and a Rotating Seasonal Bowl. The bowls have transformed our menu – Josh, a Kendall customer, recently wrote to us, “The beet poke bowl is the best new item I’ve tried at Clover in years. I love the freshness and bite of the mix of flavors.” We’ve also heard some very good suggestions about how to make them even better…

New Year’s Eve is no time to be buried in the kitchen, so we pack our NYE Box with Clover fan favorites that come together fast and encourage a night of Finger-Food Feasting. Can you think of anything better than digging into bubbling hot Brussels Sprout Cheese dip on a freezing cold Boston night? Or scooping up our bright nutty Romesco sauce as the clock ticks to midnight?  And our breakthrough Carrot Lox (probably the best thing to come out of our food dev in 2023) will have you resolving to spare more salmon in the year ahead.
