Return to McKinsey Boston Office

14 September, 2013: I was invited back to the McKinsey Boston Office, where I used to work, to talk about Clover. I don't think I'd been in that office since I left. And given that McKinsey Boston is moving to new digs in a few months, I'm lucky I had a chance to go back. And of course, the best… Read More

The Carrot Sandwich is back!

13 April, 2021: Our Easter box helped us run through the supply of Winter Moon Roots carrots. Luckily Brookford Farm in New Hampshire has a crop of beautiful organic roots, so we were able to bring back the Carrot Sandwich, the only Clover sandwich to have a love letter written to it (by an avowed carnivore no less!). Paul dreamed… 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

Two seasonal favorites back on the menu tomorrow

6 April, 2021: Tomorrow (Wednesday 4/7), two seasonal sandwiches emerge from our recipes vault and onto our menu. One breakfast. One lunch.  These sandwiches are so popular that we've even overheard people ask "What Chickpea Fritter?" after trying the Nashville Hot, and "What Classic Breakfast Sandwich?" after trying the French! So we are super excited to bring these new favorites back (although we… Read More

Logo sketches

16 November, 2008: We're still working on the logo. At this point I'm just really eager to order some cups for the coffee, and can't get that done until this is figured out. Good news is that I think I'm getting a clear sense of where it needs to end up. Now I just need to find someone to help… Read More

Clover x Winter Moon Roots

3 April, 2021: Try a meal box next week Despite what the display at your local grocery store tells you, the first sign of spring in New England isn’t asparagus or strawberries. It’s parsnips. But not just any parsnip. These are Spring Dug. On the outside they're gnarly looking, with a sprout of green at the top. On the inside, they're sweeter than… Read More

Pita oven finally gets to make something other than pita

1 April, 2021: Hot cross buns are yeasted, raisin buns historically eaten on Good Friday, so they have a special place in our Easter Box (btw if you haven't ordered yet, you have about 7 more hours!). As our Meal Box program has grown, Chris has found some creative ways to keep up with the demand. This week our dough… Read More

Confit root veggies for Easter

29 March, 2021: Chris was experimenting with items for our Easter Box, thinking like a rabbit, getting to play with all these beautiful roots that Michael Docter has been keeping safe for us in his barn. He was thinking about the technique called confit. This is used mostly for meat—where you slowly cook a piece of meat in its own… Read More

Coffee in the morning

9 December, 2008: Coffee is working beautifully. We're slowly building a following. We've still got a few things to work on: (1) Some of you feel the coffee is "light," or "not strong enough." I think part of this is everyone being used to Starbuck's burnt. But I'm afraid a part might be due to the brewing method. We're going to… Read More

Clover x Katalyst Kombucha

27 March, 2021: browse meal boxes I love Katalyst's Hopped Kombucha. I found it a year or two ago at Pemberton Farms Marketplace. Katalyst Kombucha is from Greenfield, MA, and they are buying the hops from Four Star Farms in Northfield. I grew up almost walking distance from Four Star Farms. I've been playing around with non-alcoholic drinks that are fun and… Read More
