When the weather turns cold, it is lovely to wrap your chilled hands around a warm cup of something. It’s even nicer when you can share a steaming mug with a friend. These recipes are a little indulgent, perfect for this festive season. Though it’s easy enough to add a nip of something else warming, these recipes are perfect by themselves, so you can share them with friends of all ages.
This holiday season, support local businesses and find the perfect gift for the foodies on your list. Our suggestions will make sure that your friends, family, coworkers or clients will have happy taste buds.
Fall is an incredible time of year. The leaves change color, the air is crisp, and we get to pull out our favorite sweaters from the back of the closet.

Last week we shared a bit about what a local and sustainable food system means to us and farmers and farm workers are the bedrock of that supply chain. We want to take some time to celebrate and appreciate many of the growers and farm teams that allow us to do the work that we do and to enjoy some of the most delicious organic produce in the region.

This week's box features shiitake mushrooms, which are crazy nutritious but also delicious. If you're a mushroom fan, shiitakes are likely one your list of favorites (they're so much more flavorful and complex than boring white button mushrooms!). You'll encounter shiitakes in various forms in a lot of Asian cuisine, like miso soup and many stirfries. Today we've got a recipe that calls for roasting the mushrooms and we think you're going to love it.
