The Churros are Landing!

Did you hear we made churros for our Super Bowl Meal Box? Chris purchased a churro maker and perfected a chocolate cinnamon sauce. The team squeezed and fried and packed a lot of dough.

Then all the boxes got delivered. The smell of cinnamon sugar faded from the HUB. The churro maker lay dormant. Soon the letters/texts/phone calls came in, begging us, ok, stating in no uncertain terms:

“BRING BACK THE CHURROS!!!”

And we are nothing if not listening to feedback. For a limited time only churros and chocolate are getting a second act, as the new dessert in our Snowed In Box and our Winter Seasonal Box! 

Store the churros in the fridge. When you’re ready to enjoy, heat them for 5 minutes in the oven while gently warming up the cinnamon chocolate sauce. If you have extra chocolate, Jane says to make chocolate steamed milk for your coffee. Greg says to dip warm pita in it like it’s Nutella. I think you should drizzle it over the top of your maple fluffernutter sandwiches (a favorite item in the Snowed In Box). 

SNOWED IN BOX EXTENDED INTO MARCH!

 2/18 ❄️ 2/25 ❄️ 3/4 ❄️ 3/11

As snow blankets the nation (even parts of the country that used to never see snow) we’ve been getting more and more requests to keep the Snowed In Box on for longer. Thanks for making your voices heard – we’re going to keep it on the menu until the beginning of Spring. If you’re a planner, you can now order for a month ahead! Remember, delivery is free within the I-495 loop; pickup at the HUB gets you $20 credit towards your next meal box purchase.

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.

What would we serve if we had all of you over for Christmas dinner? This (epic) box, available only for Christmas, is an homage to the holiday traditions of our Clover staff. And like all Clover boxes, it supports our hardworking Massachusetts farmers, millers, bakers, and cheesemakers. This box is designed to feed you and keep you properly festive throughout a week with different meals/snacks, and can also be laid out all together on a holiday table as one big feast.

These sweet potato latkes date back to early days on the Clover food truck. They’re so yummy and the sweet potatoes lend them such a fun golden color. They’re probably the most popular item in our Hanukkah Meal Box, which you can get delivered on December 7th. Inside the box you’ll find:

I’m writing to share some news: we’ve decided to permanently close CloverROW, our outpost in the Assembly Row neighborhood of Somerville. The closure of this restaurant is part of the whole company’s focus on reaching financial sustainability and positioning us for future growth. These decisions are really hard, but they’re necessary steps for us to simplify Clover. And, happily, all the amazing staff at CloverROW, including the manager Joe, will be able to move into other Clover restaurants. The math is straightforward…
