Cozy Comforts Recipes

Along with busy days and festive nights, December has brought with it a continuation of November’s wet and windy weather. Accordingly, this week’s lineup invites you to sit down to a cozy, comfy supper after a damp day with risotto crafted with earthy Chanterelle mushrooms, herb-kissed fromage blanc and a truffle, sea salt and Parmesan blend topping, plus soft, chewy focaccia bread and a beautiful Washington red wine. Also accompanied by Lollipop radishes, Chioggia radicchio, leeks, Brussels sprouts and beautiful garden-grown herbs, this box will do wonders to ward off any rainy day blues (as will a glass of heirloom blueberry juice!).

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Chanterelle Mushroom Risotto with Fromage Blanc
Creamy and delicious, this recipe is a favorite here at the farm—just remember to stir!

Fresh Radicchio, Fennel & Apple Salad
Tart, crunchy and crisp, this cool salad celebrates the classic combination of fennel and radicchio.

Lots of Love Recipes

In honor of Valentine’s Day, this week’s box embraces two of our greatest loves: fresh, seasonal fare and gathering around the table with the ones we adore most. Thus, this rustic, romantic menu is fit for sharing with flavorful fish stock and our hand-crafted starter base to combine in a robust cioppino stew, plus crusty Pain au Levain bread and an all-star salad trio—peppery Mizuna greens, juicy oranges and bright citrus vinaigrette. Also included: Warmly-spiced pear butter, farm-fresh eggs and heart-shaped sugar cookies to end your evening on a sweet note.

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

As temperatures warm and sunlight continues to grace our wooded enclave, spring has reached the pinnacle as it begins the transition into glorious summer. Thus, this week’s box features the debut of such early summer favorites as butter lettuce greens and rainbow cherry tomatoes, as well as a fresh array of spring classics to help craft a light and bright lasagna that stars spinach greens, fresh ricotta and aged Grana cheeses and our own mushroom duxelles. Also included: Creamy, sea salt-kissed butter, fresh eggs and oversize garlic scapes fit for grilling—enjoy!
