With a few flurries the air and what we hope are the last frigid overnight temps this week, this lineup accordingly invites you to cozy up to a comfy supper starring a risotto crafted with earthy dried Porcini mushrooms, Cherry Valley Dairy fromage blanc, our own white truffle oil and a truffle, sea salt and Parmesan blend topping. Also accompanied by golden beets, purple top baby turnips, iron-rich spinach and beautiful garden-grown herbs, plus Gruyère cheese bread, lemony olives and chocolate-coated almonds, this box will do wonders to ward off any lingering wintertime blues (as will a glass of French white wine!).
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
