The Clover Thanksgiving Box is here!

Share:

Lock down your Thanksgiving plans early (and skip the grocery store)!

It’s already smelling like Thanksgiving here in the Clover kitchen! Chris and Jason are busy finalizing recipes, calling farms, and building the best Thanksgiving spread in all the land. Last year this box sold out overnight, so this year we’ve purchased a new refrigerated van to keep up. Click here to get your meal planning done.

Whether you’re going over the river or through the woods, our box will keep you full, happy and connected to your MA farmers. From a family-sized version of our Brussels sprout sandwich to classic mashed potatoes to cranberry sauce from our local bogs, we’ve got you covered no matter how you’re celebrating this year. 

Ordering is easy. Start with a Thanksgiving box, then add extras you can’t find in grocery stores (apples from Autumn Hills Orchard,  wine paired with the meal, and pies from Petsi Pies and Forge!) Choose your box size, from a small box that feeds 2, to a feast box that feeds 10 (the price goes down as you add more people) whether you’d like to get your box on Tuesday Nov 23 or Wednesday Nov 24. 

We’re offering free delivery to all doorsteps within 30 miles of Cambridge (on all orders above $60) and we’ll also be hosting pickups at CloverHUB (1075 Cambridge St) where we’re making the food! The deadline to order is 5pm on Sunday, Nov 21, but judging by what happened last year, the boxes may sell out sooner.

COCKTAIL HOUR:

Spiced mixed nuts 
Olives with citrus and. herbs
Turmeric-pickled dipping vegetables 

MAIN COURSE: 

1. Mushroom & Walnut Pâté – Ayr’s dad’s recipe is a vegetarian showpiece that carnivores love, made with Rhode Island Mushroom Co mushrooms and Grafton Cheddar. Place tray in the oven, heat, and serve.

2. Gravy – Chris makes magic happen with butter, thyme, ginger, soy, white wine vinegar, black pepper and porcini mushrooms. Warm up, pour into your gravy boat and serve over everything.

3. Mashed Mid Isle Farm Russet Potatoes – simple and delicious mashed potatoes, sourced from the best potato farms in Prince Edward Island. Place tray in oven, heat, and serve.

4. Roasted Czajkowski Farm Brussels Sprouts – think of this as a family-sized version of our Brussels Sprout Sandwich! Just-harvested brussels, za’atar, pickled cabbage, toasted hazelnuts, and smoked Grafton cheddar. Place tray in oven, heat, then drizzle with Sour Cream Dijon sauce at the table. 

5. Scratch-made MA cranberry sauce – we make ours simply. Just sugar, water, and cranberries from one of our nearby bogs (e.g. Decas Farm). A little tart, a little sweet.

6. Creamy Butternut Squash Soup – local butternut squash and Michael Docter’s first harvest of carrots from Winter Moon Roots Farm. A Clover favorite. 

7. Stuffing made with Berkshire Mountain Bakery Ciabatta! 

DON’T FORGET LEFTOVER SANDWICHES! 

Freshly baked dinner rolls from Central Bakery.

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.

As you might know, we love feedback. Survey Day is a tradition that harkens back to the first days of the food truck, over 10 years ago. If you got a card in line today at Clover, or if you ordered on the app today, click here to take the survey. Huge thanks for helping us improve.

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!)
