New Adventure meal kits

You may have tried our Weekend Adventure Box. Fireside s’mores, cornbread and chili and hot dogs. Maybe you’ve taken it bike-camping like one of our customers (so cool). Or maybe you’ve used it to stay inside and avoid ordering pizza on one of these gray and cloudy days we’ve been having.

The Weekend Adventure Box has been so popular that it’s inspired a fleet of kits! This new Adventure Category will take you everywhere you need to go this summer. They’re easy to pop in the trunk of the car (easy on the wallet too). They’re destined for craggy shorelines and docks, grass under bare feet, reunions with friends and family, and most importantly NOT heating up your kitchen on days when we return to muggy and 90-degree humidity.

Everything in the new Weekend Adventure category will be available for pickup at 1075 Cambridge St, or home delivery to the Greater Boston Area on Thursdays and Fridays (and to the Cape on Fridays!) Plus delivery is free for orders over $60!

So ask yourself, when 5pm on Friday rolls around, are you beach, brunch, picnic or backyard?

The Beach Kit
You arrive at the beach and unpack tofu egg salad sandwiches with crisp pickles and lettuce. You dip fresh local berries in house vanilla sugar. While reading and watching the surfers do their thing, you’re dipping veggie chips into silky hummus. But beware of the seagulls! They love Clover potato salad. Kit includes compostable cutlery and our staff’s list of favorite New England beaches. 

The Brunch Kit
People are coming over Sunday! You’re excited to see everyone again after a long winter of quarantine, but what will you make? Brunch Kit to the rescue! The carrot lox Chris has become famous for, plus Forge bagels, cashew cream cheese, capers, and tomatoes; scoop-and-bake blueberry muffins; everything you need to make granola parfaits with seasonal fruit (right now rhubarb, fingers crossed for peaches soon); and orange juice for making mimosas. Just ask your friends to pick up a dry sparkling wine and you’re all set! Also includes some bonus recipes for brunch hosting.

The Backyard Kit
You’ve been invited to the neighbor’s for a grill-out. But what to bring? The Backyard Kit has the beginnings of a Mediterranean meal—our famous marinated veg, a trio of spreads, and just-baked pita. The balsamic-marinated mushrooms and lemon-marinated summer veggies are ready to hit the grill (or the oven, or griddle). Pair them with 3 of our most popular spreads: romesco, silky hummus, and sunflower seed pesto, plus Clover pita, and recipe ideas for turning this kit into a meal for a crowd. 

The Picnic Kit 
When it’s time for that big declaration, nothing says “I love you” like Clover romesco. A romantic date for two starts with spreads and pita, continues with no-cook farm bowls with seasonal produce, and ends with coconut pecan blondies and a seasonal soda that you’ll mix right at the picnic. We’ll send everything you need, including a list of unusual places to picnic around town (including a bridge made of flowers). You just bring the ice, the picnic blanket, and some courage.  

PS: Changes are happening in our Build Your Own menu too! Breakfast items are now available a-la-carte (hello Classic Breakfast Sandwich!) and we’ve also got a new Weeknight Favorites 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.
