Along with busy days and festive nights, December marks the arrival of winter, never truer as the farm was treated to its first snowfall of the year on Saturday. Come in from the cold this week to a classic soup-and-salad menu highlighted by warm, handcrafted potato leek soup, crisp Gruyère cheese bread and peppery arugula topped with a light poppy seed vinaigrette. Accompanied by pantry provisions and a new crop of winter produce including turnips, parsnips and more, this box will do wonders to ward off the continuing chill.
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
