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!


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.

  • Our most popular holiday item is back! You don’t want to miss this one.
  • 1 casserole tray
  • Ready to eat – just heat it up!

Potato-cheddar soup

  • 1 pint of creamy soup made with East coast potatoes and Grafton cheddar (did you know Rabbi Barry milked cows and supervised a special Kosher run of this cheese up in VT?)
  • Ready to eat – just heat it up!

Bitter endive, provolone, hazelnut, cherry salad

  • 1 container of salad
  • 1 bottle orange-honey-white-wine vinaigrette
  • Just dress the salad and serve it up!

Kale and Winter Moon Roots Farm salad

  • 1 container salad
  • 1 bottle turmeric dressing
  • Just dress the salad and serve it up!

(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)


  • 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!

I recently learned that garlic has 4 stages that it goes through on its journey to become the cured stuff you’re probably used to seeing. This year I learned about Green Garlic. It’s the mild, sweet, un-cured bulb, plus the fresh green shoots. We got our hands on a super limited crop from Red Fire out in Granby, and so we decided to see if we could incorporate it into every single different type of box we make next week…

We’ve intentionally steered clear of bowls for a long time. If you see Ayr tomorrow, ask him why : ) Tomorrow (5/24) we’re starting a 2-week test of bowls at CloverNTV, our restaurant in Newtonville. If it goes well, this could represent the beginning of one of the bigger changes our menu has EVER seen. We’re hoping we’ve cracked the code to bowls that are seasonal, carefully-composed, easy to carry, and craveable – all the things we love about bowls, and none of the things we don’t.

I used to eat Cheesy Grits almost every morning, and if you were eating with us around 2017, I bet you did too. We took our Plimoth-ground-grits off the menu for a little while, but now they’re back at all locations (except for the HUB for the time being). Stop in for breakfast during the next 2 weeks – we’re aiming for these to be hot and ready at 8am and we’ll be selling them til they’re out. The staff has been waking up extra early and adding a lot of extra whisking to their mornings, so we’d love to hear what you think. If you’ve never had our Cheesy Grits before, here are some things you should know….

What is Chris eating? When we toured the field at Siena, the crew was planting dahlia tubers. They get planted in warm soil, will grow all summer and will be ready for harvest in the fall. They reminded us of sunchokes, so we got to talking about whether the tubers are edible and it turns out they are! Are they delicious?

Do you want a beautiful box of produce for a fraction of what you’d pay in the grocery store? Do you want to invest in a farm’s success and be with them throughout the harvest season? Do you think you hate eggplants but you’ve just never had a good one? It might be time to look into a CSA (or farmshare).

I remember exactly the moment we started celebrating May the 4th (“May the Force” be with you). We were on a planning call about meal boxes and we were talking about how we were going to launch our Taco Tuesday program on Cinco de Mayo (May the 5th). Chris accidentally said “May the 4th” and Ayr said, “May the 4th! We should do a Star Wars Box!”

If you’ve been reading for a while you probably know we hate waste. Most of the time, minimizing waste is pretty unglamorous, but every once in a while our mission to reduce waste takes us to some very cool places. I look after Clover’s grocery marketplaces (including our Assembly Row grocery store). A few months ago I noticed that the marketplaces were going through a lot of our paper bags. They’re compostable, which is great. But I think the best bag is one you can use over and over again.

Few people know that Clover is environmental activism. This is by design.  And it works. We do these customer surveys and see that 9 out of 10 Clover customers are NOT vegetarian. Yet I’m constantly troubled by conflicting feelings about the approach we’ve taken.

Over the next 3 weeks, on a rolling schedule, most Clovers are going to be giving out a free hot or cold George Howell Montecarlos coffee to anyone who stops in between opening and 11 am. No strings— we just want to see you all and talk about coffee!! George Howell’s Montecarlos is a single-origin coffee we love for our pour-overs…

Each year, early spring is a busy time at the Clover kitchen because we have 2 of our tastiest boxes, usually back-to-back. For the Passover box, a lot of care goes into the kashering of the kitchen, with Rabbi Dolinger coming in to ensure the box is totally Kosher for Passover via Lighthouse Kosher.

That photo is corn fritters drizzled with maple syrup. We just started frying them up for a 2pm special – and they’re an element of our Maple Meal Box. If you head away from the city this time of year, you’ll see signs for sugar shacks, where maple sap gets boiled down into syrup and little restaurants pop up to serve pancakes, corn fritters, cider donuts, and dill pickles (to cut through the sweetness of the fresh syrup).

You’ve been asking! And finally we can announce: sunchokes are here, starting tomorrow, 3/1. Thanks to Pete’s Greens in VT for getting us local sunchokes. At breakfast we’ll be making The Sunchoke Truffle: fluffy house-baked pita, creamy truffled butter, caramelized onions, a 6.5 minute egg, and thin, crispy sunchoke slices. At lunch and dinner: The Sunchoke Mushroom: scallion-black-pepper mayo, fresh arugula, roasted crimini mushrooms, fried brined onions, and roasted sunchokes. But what IS a sunchoke?
