March 2: last chance for the Pushpir Sandwich!

Consider this your warning: you have about 7 days left to enjoy chef Pushpir Bhetia’s homage to Northern Indian food. Mint cilantro chutney, squeaky fried paneer cheese, pickly chickpea chaat, tangy tamarind sauce, and Sidehill Farm yogurt. Once it’s gone, it’s gone til next winter.

But there’s more than one way to get Pushpir! Did you know that the Pushpir is part of our Home Meal Box Program? The Starter Box has Pushpir sandwiches alongside chickpea fritters and breakfast sandwich makings; the Winter Seasonal Box has Pushpir fixings alongside hearty Shepherd’s pie and root veggie salads; and if you just want Pushpir-no-distractions, we have an entire box dedicated to him! 

If you’ve never had a meal box before, give it a try this week. Chris and his team do most of the prep work for you, and I write helpful recipe cards to get you the rest of the way there. Most boxes qualify for free delivery (which sure beats a trip to the grocery store) but they do start selling out towards the end of the week, so act fast. 

💖 Signing off with this Yelp review (written by a fourth-grader at Clover Burlington) that we we will treasure forever:

Do you like a small little restaurant where you can eat all different types of food from all over the world but still have a nice conversation? I think Clover is one of the best restaurants I have been to. They have all different foods from sandwiches to falafels and sandwiches that have a spicy sauce and mushrooms fried with breadcrumbs, as well as lettuce. Not only is Clover plentiful with there food but they also are completely vegetarian! They make breakfast stuff like a egg and cheese sandwiches to snacks like french fries with rosemary or falafel skewers with hummus and hot sauce. They have sandwiches but the cool thing is that they turn those sandwiches into platters like the Bridgewater sandwich becomes the Bridgewater platter. Everything is the same but it’s disassembled, plus they have two salad of the days. They make fake meats that are completely made out of plants. The meatballs in the impossible meatball sandwich is made out of fresh garlic, parsley, pita soaked in milk, and egg then they bake it in the form of a meatball. They find people from all over the world who have cool recipes then transform it into something new. The people in Clover are very nice themselves. They are maybe the best fast food restaurant ever in my opinion. I rate them a 9.5 out of 10.

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.
