Just in time for the spookiest night of the year, this week’s box stars a stunning black rice stir-fry tossed with Matsutake mushrooms and green onions, and topped with quail egg and toasted sesame seeds. Deeply flavorful and aromatic, this warm, Asian-influenced meal is fit for a dark night, also featuring pumpernickel bread, ripe pears and Spanish black radish, plus cabbage slaw topped with locally-made shallot oil and amber vinegar.
