Meet the Father’s Day Meal Box

We surveyed some culinary Clover dads about their dream Father’s Day meals. Then we asked ourselves, “What if all those meals could happen in one day?” And so the Father’s Day Meal Box was born! Now available for pickup or free delivery on the weekend of Father’s Day (6/18 and 6/19).

  • For breakfast, start with a heat-and-eat French Toast Casserole made with Berkshire Mountain Bakery ciabatta. Everyone can garnish their own warm slice with fancy toppings (think smoked coconut flakes, warm lavender caramel sauce, cacao nibs, and vanilla whipped cream). 
  • At lunchtime, assemble a monster-sized Steak Bomb Sub, straight from Chris’s dreams/nightmares; bright with peppers and onions and all melty with provolone.
  • For dinner, we’re sending you a Grilled Pizza Party in a Box, complete with dough! You’ll stretch and shape the dough, then decorate pizzas to throw on the grill or bake in the oven. Will you go traditional (red sauce, meatballs, provolone) or will you make a carrot-feta-habanero pizza? You won’t have to choose, there will be enough to make both!
  • Dessert is a ready-to-eat Dream Cream Cheesecake with a graham cracker crumble and rhubarb compote on top. 
  • And for a midnight snack (or for watching the Sox play the Royals) there’s a Cheesy Chorizo Nacho Bar with Charley Baer’s black beans, shredded Grafton cheddar, and a new extremely addictive Impossible chorizo Chris has been working.

Every meal comes together quickly, can be made by one person or together with the whole family, and can be eaten through a single day for one big party or over a few days.

Plus – add a Baking Steel to your order! Just 25 of these in stock.

We are extremely excited to be collaborating with our friend Andris of Baking Steel! Andris is a veteran of the Boston chef scene and the son of the Stoughton Steel family. The Baking Steel is his passion project, and it’s a great gift for dad, and anyone else who wants to dial in the perfect oven pizza for Pizza Night, cook over an open fire this summer, or make better pancakes for the grandkids on a Sunday morning. It’s got a great origin story right here in MA and it’s beloved by chefs and home cooks alike. I think we are only at the very beginning of the baking steel wave.

If you’ve watched some of Ayr’s quarantine cooking experiments, you might have spied a Baking Steel on his stovetop. Chris has one too, and so do I. It’s the only thing I use now for frying/baking/searing/pizza-making/potatoes for breakfast tacos/English muffins/whatever. Literally the only thing I use. Shoot me an email (info@cloverfoodlab.com) if you want to talk to me (Lucia) about my baking steel 🙂 

Add a Baking Steel to any Clover Meal Box order starting June 18 and we’ll deliver it free of charge along with your meal box. All you’ll need to do is heft it inside, and wrap it without Dad seeing!

PS: The Father’s Day box is already going fast. If you pre-ordered and want to add a Baking Steel to your existing order, email us at info@cloverfoodlab.com and we’ll help you ou!

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.

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:
