Dear Narrative Food Community, We are very excited to present our new box options. Hopefully you have read the letter from our founder, and are already familiar with the exciting news about our new products. If not, and you’d like to read it, please find it HERE.
Details about our new format:
We have essentially broken our big provisions boxes down into modules that can be built together to offer an experience with Narrative Food that is more customized to the unique needs of your family. To serve as a the foundation of the week, we have supper boxes that are designed to be more like meal kits. As always, our meal kits will be centered around a culinary creative, cookbook, theme, or artisan so that you can still experience that connection to the compelling stories behind great food. The specific options are outlined below. After you choose your meal kits, we invite you to add on the right amount of other weekly staples for your family: a produce box filled with the abundance California has to offer, a weekly fruit selection, a butcher’s bundle, or our *new* plant-based protein bundle, and a selection of basics we know you already love: bread, milk, eggs, and more. Of course, you can always shop a la carte to add one-time tasty items to your cart, or to add recurring items you love to have each week. (Ex.Jennifer has a Bub & Grandma’s sourdough loaf set on recurring every week!)
Do you prefer to do your own thing?
We love our #mealkitrebels! You like to do your own thing and freestyle in the kitchen. You have a few options: (1) Feel free to choose from our produce and meat selections to build an entirely a la carte box from our marketplace (2) Get a supper kit but don’t feel constrained by the recipes! You can still enjoy the beautiful ingredients and incredible artisan pantry items the you’d like to.
STEP ONE: CHOOSE YOUR SUPPER KIT
For nights when you have time to cook and for the folks who enjoyed the curated themes of our Narrative Provisions boxes. These individual supper boxes change weekly to explore different cuisines, to celebrate a holiday, cookbook release, theme, or local culinary creative!
The Sunday Supper Kit ($75) feeds 4 – or, 2 with leftovers! The box is inspired by our weekly narrative and includes a recipe card, organic and locally sourced produce, pasture-raised butcher cut meat from our friends at Electric City Butcher, and thoughtfully sourced small-batch ingredients covering the gamut from Diaspora Co. single-origin spices to PNW wild-forage morels, Santa Monica Farmers Market favorites, as well as new and beloved local makers you will be excited to enjoy.
The Vegetarian Supper Kit ($70) feeds 4 – or, 2 with leftovers. A generous vegetarian meal including elements which could be split into two lighter meals. Also featuring carefully chosen ingredients paired with a recipe card, this meal will share the same theme as the Sunday Supper Kit and feature specialty items that you will love – and that will love back our soil health and community. And for nights tight on time…
The new Weeknight Supper Kit ($50) feeds 2 adults+ and is a 4-week rotation of quick, fun, family-friendly vegetarian meals with elements from some of our favorite local makers. If you add on a butcher’s bundle, one of your meat selections will pair well with the week’s meal:
- Week 1:Lupa Cotta Pizza Night
- Week 2: Taco Night with Tehachapi Grain Project flour tortillas
- Week 3: Handmade Mission Rose fresh pasta
- Week 4: Woon Kitchen Noodles, Sandita’s Dumplings, or Rice Stir Fry
The new Wine & Grazing Board Supper Kit ($110) is an indulgent pleasure to take outside on a lovely evening, and just nibble the night away in the candlelight – or dwell around your kitchen table telling stories. And yes, we are calling this supper for the night! It includes:
- a bottle of natural CA wine
- a beautiful cheese from an artisan dairy
- a box of crackers
- olives, nuts, or pickles
- an artisan charcuterie item
- a sweet treat (jam, honey, chocolate)
The Vegetarian Wine & Grazing Board Supper Kit ($90) skips the charcuterie and conserva but includes the option to add hummus or a spread.
STEP TWO: CHOOSE YOUR PRODUCE SELECTIONS
Choose from our rotating a la carte produce selections and bundles, or add on a Fruit Bowl to your order. STEP THREE: CHOOSE YOUR PROTEIN BUNDLES
Choose from our Butcher Bundle (renamed from our Medium Meat Selection), our brand new Plant-based Protein Bundle ($39), and other proteins like, eggs, milk, cheese, etc. You can set any of these items to weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or one-off orders.
STEP FOUR: CHOOSE YOUR BEST-SELLING BASICS
