As we greet the arrival of April with hope for healthier days ahead, we continue to be comforted by the signs of spring spotted around us here at the farm, and found in your box, too. Thus, this week’s Italian-inspired selection features a risotto kit complete with earthy baby Shiitake mushrooms, chicken stock and Arborio rice, plus Italian Rustica bread and a plethora of spring greens like pea shoots, arugula and Lacinato kale—just unpack your box, uncork a French red and find some fresh inspiration for the month ahead.
