Sunday Supper Recipes

In the tradition of our own Nonna Pat’s long-standing Sunday suppers, this week’s box includes fixings for a truly satisfying Italian-style spread: Appetizer provisions like freshly-baked focaccia and plump olives; fresh bucatini pasta topped with Nonna’s signature marinara sauce and Grana-style cheese; and finally, our signature lemon olive oil-polenta cake mix to whip up for dessert. Also included: Local duck eggs, fresh garden herbs and a lineup of produce favorites like Lacinato kale, Hakurei turnips and Meyer lemons—mangia!

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Sun Ripened Recipes

No matter how you pronounce it, the word ‘tomato’ practically sings of summer, as well it should as the vine-ripened beauties are now at their best. This week’s box pays homage to the ripe, juicy summer favorite with a selection of heirloom tomatoes, plus focaccia bread, our housemade Cara Cara orange vinaigrette and everything you need for a hearty baked orzo main, plus Rainier cherries, raspberries, fennel and crisp gardens greens. Also included: Ingredients for a luscious apricot cake topped with apricot-almond crumble to finish off this bright and beautiful lineup.
