The first week of December has brought on the trademark busy days and festive nights of the holiday season, as well as equally-seasonal weather with chilly nights and mornings. Take a much-deserved break this week with provisions for a cozy, comfy brunch—think: smoked wild salmon, farmstead eggs and fresh-baked cinnamon-raisin bread. Accompanied by seasonal produce such as Chioggia beets, Brussels sprouts and Delicata squash, plus our own crème fraîche and citrus vinaigrette, this box will do wonders to buoy the holiday spirit.
