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:
Grana Cheese with Honey & Red Pepper Flakes

Lemon Olive Oil Polenta Cake
This rustic cake has a slightly-crunchy texture courtesy of polenta and is beautifully flavored by olive oil.
