Meet the Clover Valentine’s Day Box!

The Clover Valentine’s Day Box is here!!! Caviar and truffles and steak, Clover style? Chris dusted off his chef’s whites and spun up a decadent menu that’s a bit fancier than we usually go for – because this year we all need a little extra luxury. 

 Share it with someone you love, gift it to someone across town, or divvy it up to treat yourself to a few days of solo wintery fun.

For supplements, we’ve got candles, bon bons, and our friend Jared Sadoian returning with a wine trio pairing. 

Available for free delivery (within 30 miles of CloverHUB) on Friday February 12 and Saturday February 13. Or choose to pickup at the HUB and we’ll give you $20 toward your next Clover meal box order 🙂



St. Valentine may have been Roman, but we love food from the toe of the Italian boot. Chris riffed on ‘nduja, a traditional Calabrian pork spread, making it using Winter Moon Roots carrots, emulsified tomatoes and lots of olive oil. 

Nothing says luxury like caviar…

…except maybe truffles.

An homage to a bar we miss called Upper West.

 Berkshire Mountain French Baguette
and Pecorino Parsley Pita Points

Slice up a rainbow of Red King, Purple Daikon, and Green Meat Radishes.
Pull out the High Lawn Farm Cultured Butter an hour before you’re ready to eat, and sprinkle it with Hawaiian Pink Sea Salt. French farmers have known this for a long time, but sharp bright radishes and rich, salty butter make the best couple.

A rich and creamy favorite returns!
“We’re going to have to order more sour cream,” Chris said. If Chris could give a Valentine to any food, it would be sour cream : )

When Jane saw a picture of this salad, she thought it was a bowl of chocolates. The truth is even better: red endive, heirloom Castelfranco radicchio, Winter Moon Root purple carrots, dried cherries, pickled red onions, red Chioggia beets and balsamic-molasses vinaigrette. 


Tahini & Harissa-encrusted and double-roasted whole cauliflower with pistachios, raisins, capers and a brown butter sauce. Served over warm lentils. We’ve done all the work; just heat and serve. 


2 house-made oatmeal pies (think rich, cookie-like) with beet buttercream filling.
Don’t tell Little Debbie.

– 1 box candy hearts
– 1 Valentines card designed by children’s book illustrator Brooke Dyer (aka Ayr’s wife!)

– our favorite local bon bons (only 50 available)

– a bottle of champagne
– Mole Hollow candles from Sturbridge, MA (only 45 available),
– from pink and sparkling to red and full-bodied, a trio of wines paired by Jared Sadoian

I recently took a Soup Box on a family vacation and we were all blown away by the clean, clear flavors and the freshness of the produce. (It was a potato leek soup with arugula salad and cider chive vinaigrette, French bread, local cucumbers, local radishes, and 2 different types of compound butters.) If you haven’t had a meal box in a while, this time of year might be the perfect time to try one…

As a born-and-bred Yankee, I’m particularly pumped for our Cape Cod Box. We’re using mushrooms and veggies to recreate classic Clam Shack fare— clam strips, chowder, and fish and chips! Plus, Chris and the kitchen team are righting the eternal wrong that Veggie Lovers never get to experience the rich luscious buttery joy of an overstuffed Lobster Roll with a perfectly toasted bun.

Emily just sent me a picture of this giant lettuce we just got from Verrill Farm. We’re going to be putting it in Monday’s Salad Meal Box along with eggplant, carrot-feta spread, Lebanese white bean salad, and a bunch of other yummy things. If you’re subscribed, you’re probably already in for this delivery; if you’d like to try it a-la-carte click here. Because these greens are grown in real soil, you’ll need to give them a good rinse using a…

Yellow and green summer squash. Basil. Beets. Scapes and scallions and spinach. Summer produce is starting to appear in our kitchen in abundance! Which means our Weekly Meal Boxes are getting even more vibrant and exciting. Here’s what we’re cooking up for next week: 6/30-7/6.

Don’t let the next 7 days go by before stopping in for a Nashville Hot Mushroom. Corn mayo, a pile of beautiful Rhode Island Mushrooms we batter and fry, our sizzlingly hot Nashville oil, leaf lettuce, and some VERY necessary cooling pickle slices. If you aren’t on our email list, we occasionally send out little gifts there. Last night we sent out $5 off a Nashville Hot Mushroom sandwich or platter, and now I’m sharing it here…

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?
