Meet the Snowed In Box ⛄

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 Onètastes 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.

AVAILABLE THURSDAYS IN JANUARY AND FEBRUARY!

1/14 ❄️ 1/21 ❄️ 1/28 ❄️ 2/4 ❄️ 2/11 ❄️ 2/18 ❄️ 2/25

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.

Greg’s kiddos – the inspiration for this Snowed In Box!

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.
