February continues to chill the bones, so warm yourself body and soul this week with a pasta night starring locally-crafted bucatini pasta kissed with earthy Shiitake mushrooms and homegrown Swiss chard, as well as our signature garlic confit and Grana-style cheese. Also included in this cozy and comforting box: Fresh Challah bread, seasonal favorites such as Seckel pears and Cara Cara oranges, and two snacks fit for Oscar night—certified-organic black popcorn and chocolate coated almonds.
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Slow-Roasted Ginger-Lime Carrots
These flavorful carrots from Jennifer Perillo’s Homemade with Love cookbook are wonderful served hot, at room temperature and even cold.
