St. Paddy’s Day Meal Boxes now on the menu!


There once was a meal box from Boston 
With St. Paddy’s Irish food tossed in
If you don’t touch my bangers,
I won’t touch your mash.
And we’ll share in that emerald green frostin’

We are so pleased to announce our St. Paddy’s Day Menu! We have four components for celebrating the holiday: a Dinner Box,  a “Full Irish” Breakfast Box, a Beer Celebration Trio, and even the chance to test your luck with a Pot of Gold (what’s that?) The Southie parade is off this year, so celebrate Irish food traditions at home and stock your fridge with a parade of new meals built on culinary research and locally available produce. Special thanks to Kev, our Kendall restaurant manager, who hails from Ireland and lent us his recipes and memories. Sláinte!

(And thank you to Mick for bringing to our attention that it’s “St. Paddy’s” with the letter D, not the letter T!)

Available now 🍀 Pickup at HUB / Free Delivery over $60 🍀 3/12 + 3/16

St. Paddy’s Day Dinner Box Menu

Irish Soda Bread Kit with Apple Compote and Goat Cheese
 all ingredients pre-measured
includes a short bake-along video from Ayr

Shepherd’s Pie
Winter Moon Roots veggies, lentils, whipped potato topping
Just heat and eat

Sweet Potato Boxty
Clover’s take on a traditional Irish potato pancake
We’ll send you the batter; you’ll make patties and fry at home

Irish Guinness Stew
Local veg, seared seitan, THE Irish dry stout
Just heat and eat

Bangers and Mash
Beyond Meat “Bangers,” Onion Gravy
Cabbage-Kale-Scallion Colcannon
Just heat and eat 

For snacking: Cheese and Onion Potato Chips
Sneakily vegan, based on Kev’s favorite flavor from back home in Ireland

 For dessert: Green Brownie Pie
Because you have to eat something green on St. Paddy’s, Chris made the most delicious brownie pie, covered with green matcha buttercream, pistachios and chocolate shavings


“Full Irish” Breakfast Box 
But we couldn’t stop at dinner. Stock your fridge with the makings of a “Full Irish,” the spread of bacon, eggs, black pudding sausage, beans, tomatoes, and mushrooms that is nearly impossible to find this side of the Atlantic. We’re tucking in our house-baked scones, Farmacy tea for 4 and our famous carrot-orange marmalade, plus everything you need to brew up decadent maple-chocolate coffees (add your favorite whiskey to make them Irish coffees).

Since everything is done ahead (you just warm things up) it’s ideal for the bleary morning after a St. Paddy’s celebration…or for daydreaming that you’re waking up at a bed and breakfast in the Emerald Isle.

– Maple chocolate coffee kit (caffeinated)
– Farmacy Herbs tea for 4 (non-caffeinated)
– House-baked oatmeal scones for 4
– Carrot-orange Marmalade
– Black pudding sausage patties
– Smoky tempeh bacon strips 
– Soft-cooked eggs
– Irish beans made with Charley Baer heirlooms
– Roasted tomato halves
– Garlicky roasted crimini mushrooms from Rhode Island 


PS: Thank you Violet, age 9, for hand-making all the St. Paddy’s day decorations we used (including the illustration above!!)

The Pizza Friday Box gave us an idea: calzones! Ayr has been making these at his house and texting us photos. They’re big and saucy and so good. Basically a stuffed pizza/turnover situation with origins in 17th century Naples.

Thanks all who joined for the first public food dev meeting after Covid. Phil did a great job pulling it all together. If you’re a customer, farmer, vendor (or Clover staff member) reading this, you are invited to Food Dev! These happen Thursday afternoons at the HUB and they’re where all new food ideas are born. Just make sure to sign up – spots are limited.

House-made carrot lox, hearty vegetable stews with bread and pickles, Tunisian breakfast bowls, a pizza party kit, and a dream of snow, all in one box. Our Snowed In Box is back. This was Greg’s idea back in 2020. He thought it would be cool to make a box that was equally whether eaten after snowboarding or cozied up on the couch watching a movie.

We’ve been getting a lot of requests for the ability to gift a friend Clover Meal Boxes. After a lot of late night tech sessions, we have a way to do this! Yay! I’ve been looking and seeing a few of you have started to discover this feature and are starting to gift away. So cool to see.

If you’re a weekly meal box subscriber, you may have noticed way fewer plastic containers in your deliveries recently.When we started the program, we were in the pandemic, new to this whole home delivery thing, and a big concern was making sure that nothing spilled inside the boxes. So we relied on post-consumer recycled containers (aka plastic deli containers) for a lot of the items.

We’ve been getting back into the merch game. First up: squash shirts. I thought it would be fun to celebrate the diversity of the squash world. Although butternut is probably the squash you see most in the grocery store, there are actually over 100 types of squash, all with their own patterns, colors, and textures.

The Bridgewater is back!! This is probably the most requested sandwich on our menu. Michelle who runs our social media says she reliably gets one message per week asking when it will return. In 2015, Paul and Bryan came up with this sandwich as an homage to the jalapeño poppers at The Charlie Horse, a now-closed tavern in their hometown of Bridgewater, MA.

I love the holidays. I love the lights, I love the traditions, I love ornaments and pine needles all over the floor.  I love the movies (“Muppet Christmas Carol”) and the books (“A Child’s Christmas in Wales.”) I love the good songs, I love the schlocky songs (if you’ve never heard “Suzy Snowflake” or “Dominic the Donkey”, stop reading right now and click through.)

It was inevitable. Our meal box program had to find its way into restaurants at some point. A bunch of you have been asking if we can sell “on demand” meal boxes in our restaurants – for those times when you have last-minute dinner guests or forgot to subscribe by the deadline. So we’ve been easing into the process of combining one part of Clover with another.

Brussels Sprouts are extra sweet this time of year, and King Brussels, in his infinite wisdom, has cooked up a Brussels Week in our meal boxes. Every single subscription box will contain a recipe inspired by brussels! This is the first time we’ve explored a seasonal theme across our entire lineup and we’re excited to dive in.

This was Jane’s last week at Clover. We’re wishing her the best in her next steps (but also not so secretly hoping she comes back!)

Have you ordered your Thanksgiving Box yet? It’s already 50% sold out, so get your orders in this weekend if you can. This box comes with everything from stuffing to porcini-thyme gravy to mashed PEI potatoes to local cranberry sauce to bread to make leftover sandwiches. Most of the items can go from box to oven to table with very minimal prep, and we’ve made multiple sizes whether you’re dining solo or with a crowd.
