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.
