King cake at Clover?

16 February, 2022: It's decidedly *not* from New England, it's not particularly healthy, and Ayr even swore it would never be on our menu. And yet it's one of the most exciting things we've got going on right now. King Cake is a New Orleans delicacy that came over from France in the 1800s (they had been eating it there… Read More

The Mardi Gras Box is Here!

14 February, 2022: Let's start with a French lesson -  Mardi Gras = Fat Tuesday. This is because, it being the day before Lent, a lot of people would go on a massive binge of all the rich, fatty, mouth-watering foods (often meat and dairy) that would soon be prohibited for 40 days of Lent.

Last chance for Super Bowl Box (and churros!)

8 February, 2022: Last year we started a tradition making churros and chocolate for our SuperBowl Sunday Box. I don't know how it started but I look forward to it. It's the only time this elusive item gets made anywhere at Clover. A churro is a Spanish ridged fried donut that's been eaten for centuries but went viral last year among home cooks (why?) The… Read More

You won’t see a Clover sign here

26 January, 2022: I visited our newest site yesterday and felt a tingle of the excitement that I felt when we were first launching food trucks. This is Widett Circle, an industrial area in Boston that is slated for demolition and redevelopment. The operators who used to be here are gone and the developers are waiting on permits or something.… Read More

11 January, 2022: You may be asking yourself, what is this photo of? Our chef Jason sent me this photo of medlars getting ready to be made into jam. Which means, yes, the Medlar is back tomorrow (the 12th)! Sugary, winy, fruity.
