This holy grail of springtime has been absent at Clover until now

1 May, 2021: The next 200 people to order a meal box for Thursday will be getting a really special gift: ramps. How can I describe the taste of a ramp? A chef I know says: scallion meets barely-roasted garlic clove. My friend, who has a ramp tattoo on her wrist, says: sharp, green, and creamy. I say it’s like a super-concentrated leek, with a saucy story it wants… Read More

I don’t want Facebook to watch you eat

26 April, 2021: We’re trying to figure out digital marketing. I keep feeling like I just have to hold my nose.

Broken toe

29 August, 2008: See that big toe? Last night I dropped the LP gas tank on it. I think it might be broken. Anyway, it kept me from surfing this morning. I guess this is why people wear steel toed boots. I was actually looking at some the other week but couldn’t find any not in leather, so didn’t buy.… Read More

Pancake flop

7 April, 2021: We sent out a few Maple Boxes late in March with double the correct amount of dry pancake mix. This was a bummer because 1.) our Maple Box was hugely popular and 2.) when made right our pancakes are delicious! If you were one of the folks who got the incorrect mix and made pancakes before we… Read More

Accident

6 November, 2008: We were on our way to MIT, first day we were ready before 11am (we’d been up since 5am), and crash. Somebody hit their breaks hard ahead of me to make a turn. No signal. So I hit the breaks and Rolando and our food went flying. Everyone is ok. We didn’t hit anything, but what a… Read More
