Come in from the cold, there’s stew on. Introducing our celebration of all things hearty and wintery and New England. Meet the Snowed In Box!!! Rumor has it ordering one will guarantee a blizzard 😉
Inspired by our C.O.O (and avid skier dad) Greg’s dream winter weekend, the Snowed In Box is perfect whether you are venturing out to a cabin, exploring the Massachusetts slopes, or getting snowed in at home with your pod. Weekend trips will be different this year. Many of you will be skipping air travel and exploring wintery fun close to home (have you been to these spots yet?) or exploring IMDB’s list of 100 wintery movies (my favorite after this past year: Groundhog Day).
For the first time ever, one of our meal boxes has enough food to take care of ALL meals for a weekend—that means 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, 2 snacks, 2 desserts, 2 hot beverages for each person. No work for you, no coffee maker needed, no running out to the store or ski lodge. Just a stove, a knife, basic pots and pans, and a fridge to store the box. If you’re trying out winter camping, you can even store the box in a snowdrift (joking…) Available in 2-person or 4-person sizes (double up if you’ve got a bigger crew).
You’ll need lots of energy whether you’re skiing or making snow angels in the backyard, so for breakfast turn to Tunisian breakfast bowls in spiced tomato sauce with perfect soft-cooked eggs (think shakshuka), and a lavishspread of assorted bagels from one of our favorite local shops with all the fixings – house-made carrot lox, capers, whipped cashew cream cheese, and Backyard Farms tomatoes grown with the power of melting snow.
Later on in the weekend, warm up our stick-to-your-ribs Winter Vegetable Stew featuring PEI potatoes, split peas, and roots from Michael Docter’s frostbitten fields. Chris is making pans of his now-famous Mac & Cheese with a proper Mornay sauce and our favorite Grafton cheddar. Richard is sending us his Margherita Pizza made with long-fermented sourdough that is tastier, better for you, and more filling than your average ‘za. The Winter Farm Salads are coming with Hadley roots, just-picked microgreens and creamy turmeric dressing. And our Potato Cheddar Leek Soup (made by Onè) tastes decadent by the fire with a hunk of ciabatta and garlic herb butter. Yum.
And since the box is all about snow, we’re tucking in a kit to make something fluffy and white: Maple Fluffernutter Sandwiches with Clover-made marshmallow fluff (remember Clementine’s recipe from quarantine?), Teddie peanut butter, and house pita. Bonus points if you can tell us where the Fluffernutter originated.
One of the best parts about winter is hot drinks. Our Hot Honey Ginger drink is back for this box only! This was a staff favorite from frosty days on the food truck, and is made with fresh ginger and Champlain Valley Apiaries honey. Perfect for fending off any tickles in the throat caused by the heat being on. Adults: remember to pack a thermos when you head out into the snow; because we’ve got coffee covered with Tandem Roaster’s instant coffee packets. Yummy with a Maine Grains brownie.

If you’re planning a winter adventure be sure to order ahead; we’ve been selling out of our specialty boxes and occasionally disappointing folks who arrive too late. Ordering opens up a week in advance. Delivery is free within the I-495 loop, and pickup at the HUB gets you $20 towards your next meal box.
