Too Hot to Cook?

By Sara White August 16, 2015

Pin It

It’s hot and humid out with temperatures in the 90s, and that means turning on the oven for a long stretch of time is about the last thing you want to do at the end of a busy day.

Here are our top tips for eating (and we mean eating great food) without the heat:

 

Make dinner without turning on the oven or stove: Some of the best summer meals focus on the freshest produce. Enjoy fresh tomatoes in chilled gazpacho. Blend 2 chopped tomatoes with 1 cucumber, 2 peppers in your choice of colors, 3 stalks of celery and 1 small onion. Add 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of crushed garlic. Season to taste with salt, pepper and crushed red pepper. Top your gazpacho with fresh crab meat or lobster, or a few slices of avocado.

These late summer days are a perfect excuse for a Caprese Salad made with our Homemade Mozzarella or a Panzanella Salad with chopped tomatoes, cubes of crusty Italian bread and red wine vinaigrette.

Celebrate summer Asian style! Set up all the fixins’ for lettuce wraps so everyone can make their own. Include rice noodles, fresh basil and mint, thinly sliced carrot sticks, cucumber and scallions. Add cooked shrimp, available in our seafood department, or precooked grilled chicken. For sauces, something spicy such as Sriracha and a ponzu sauce should do the trick!

 

Pick up complete BBQ and deli meals that are ready to go: In Roche Bros. Kitchen, we deal with the hot stoves and ovens so you don’t have to! Stop by to pick up everything you need for a BBQ. We have BBQ chicken leg quarters, pulled pork and ribs, ready to heat (just briefly, and only if you really want to) and serve.

Try our wide selection of fresh salads, including Crunchy Vegetable Salad, Sweet Pea and Proscuitto Pasta Salad, Blueberry Kale Salad and more. At our deli, find high-quality deli meats ready to go from Dietz & Watson, Plainville and many others, or choose what you want and we’ll cut it to order. With our home-cooked turkey and roast beef on fresh bread with our own potato salad on the side, you won’t even miss a hot meal!

Have fun with recipes that need the freezer: When you  need something icy cold that everyone will love, make homemade popsicles! For a juicy, fruity, thirst quencher, add frozen berries and mango pieces to fresh orange juice and freeze. Use black or green tea as a base for a morning or afternoon pick-me-up. Add fresh lemon and honey before freezing. For a creamy dessert treat, blend fruit (or even some chocolate!) with yogurt, coconut milk or ice cream.

And, of course, if you don’t have time to make your own, we have a wide selection of frozen treats waiting for you!

Greetings from Maine!

By Sara White August 14, 2015

Pin It

We’re celebrating the season with our favorite flavors from Maine. From sweet and tangy wild blueberries to fresh succulent lobsters, there’s always something delicious to eat in Maine, no matter what time of day.

A “Berry” Good Breakfast

Pour yourself a fresh cup of coffee, and start your day with the fresh taste of Maine Blueberries. Treat the whole family to blueberry waffles or pancakes with Stonewall Kitchen’s Farmhouse Pancake and Waffle Mix, using Kate’s Butter and Real Butter Milk and top the whole plate off with Stonewall’s Maine Maple Syrup.

For something a little lighter, our own Blueberry loaf breads and coffeecakes are always a favorite, especially when paired with Stonewall’s Jams or Jellies – made in York, ME.

 

Lobstah!
The “Maine” Attraction

Lunch on the go is a breeze with our stores’s Lobster Shacks. They’re serving up our own, fresh made Maine Lobster Rolls. Check it out on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday between 4:30 and 6:30pm.

For dinner, you can have a Maine celebration of your own with just one stop to any of our stores. Of course,you’ll need to stop by the seafood counter.

Our briny, sweet, soft shelled Maine Steaming Clams are the perfect thing to start off your meal. Just toss them in a pot of salty water, let them soak for about 20 minutes, then steam. If you’re in the mood for chowder, Our Kitchen’s New England Clam Chowder is sure to impress.  Serve it up with some classic Oyster Crackers and a side of our Bakery’s Fresh Baked Corn Bread for a meal that will leave you and your family in a state of pure Maine bliss.

Of course, our Live n’ Kickin’ Maine Lobsters are the true star of your seafood celebration. Wild caught and as fresh as can be, if you’re not in the mood to cook them yourself, we would be happy to steam them in store at our seafood counter.  Or perhaps our Chef Ready Lobster Tails are just what you’re looking for. They’re ready to go right from the store, and are perfect for cooking on the grill. Serve either with our Super Sweet Butter & Sugar Corn for a delicious, Maine inspired meal.

 

Whoopie!
Mousse or Moose?

The Maine celebration doesn’t stop after dinner. Enjoy a slice of Maine’s official State Dessert by picking up one of our Bakery’s Wild Maine Blueberry Pies, served with a scoop of Gifford’s Ice Cream, made right in Skowhegan, ME.

On the other hand, Maine’s official “State Treat” get’s some love from our Bakery, where an assortment of Whoopie Pies are available to satisfy your sweet tooth.  Steve’s Whoopie Pies offer a wide assortment of flavors, including Red Velvet, Double Chocolate and more, or pick up one of our own Character Decorated, or Lemon Raspberry Whoopie Pies. Finally, if you’re family is absolutely crazy about whoopie pies, The “Big Whoop” – a cake sized whoopie pie – might be just what you need.

Come down to Roche Bros. this week and treat yourself to your own little slice of Maine, right in your own backyard!

About Us, What's New

Making a Memorable Memorial Day Menu

By Sara White May 20, 2015

Pin It

Memorial Day is coming up on May 25th and Roche Bros. is ready with everything you need to start off your summer BBQ season.

Check out our latest suggestions for your Memorial Day Menu:

 

Spice up your burgers.

Begin your burger prep with our USDA Choice Ground Beef or Laura’s Lean Grass-Fed Organic Ground Beef. Then, bring on the fire before you light up the coals by blending jalapeno and poblano peppers into the beef. Top them with avocado and fresh cilantro. For an Italian version, mix in basil, oregano and garlic powder, and top them with mozzarella and marinated tomatoes.

Or let us make them mouth-watering for you with our Certified Angus Beef Prime Grinds. We offer Prime Grinds as 85% and 90% lean ground beef, and made into Pub Burgers, Sliders, and five flavored patties: Mushroom & Swiss, Cheddar Cheese, Onion & Pepper, Bacon & Cheddar, and Cracked Black Pepper.

 

Grill something different.

Find something new to cook on the grill this year. We recommend Kayem Artisan Sausages or Shepard’s Pride Lamb.

Perhaps you grill the same vegetables year after year. This Memorial Day, warm up your salad with grilled hearts of romaine lettuce, simply prepared with olive oil, salt and pepper! Eggplant takes on the smoky flavors of the fire well, too. Coat it with miso and soy sauce or marinate it in balsamic vinaigrette.

Fresh fish is fit for marinating and grilling. And so is seafood, such as oysters or our Chef-Ready Lobster Tails.

Try grilling fruit kabobs with watermelon and pineapple. Serve them on the skewer for dessert, or take it off and mix it with feta and fresh mint for a refreshing salad.

You can also buy grill-ready ribs from Roche Bros. meat case, with your choice of sauces. Or take home the whole BBQ from Roche Bros. Kitchen with Bourbon Grilled Steak Tips, BBQ Pulled Pork, St. Louis BBQ Ribs and BBQ Jumbo Chicken Leg Quarters!

 

Satisfy guests with salads and dips.

While the grill is heating up, have chips and dips ready for snacking. Spinach and Artichoke Dip or Guacamole both go well with our in-house cooked tortilla chips. And keep your salads fresh and full of flavor with our new Blueberry & Kale Salad and Sweet Pea & Prosciutto Pasta Salad. And don’t miss our All-Natural Cole Slaw and Bud Roche’s Famous Homemade Potato Salad.

 

Sweeten the day in red, white & blue.

Make your Memorial Day parties patriotic with a bit of red, white and blue! Arrange blueberries and strawberries in stripes with fresh whipped cream for dessert. Or take the berries and cream and use them to decorate an Angel Food Cake from our bakery. Or choose from our Flag Decorated Cake or Fresh Fruit Tart, with fresh strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream, and our popular Trifles.

 

Say cheers. Toast at your backyard BBQ with beer and wine selections from our Roche Bros. stores in Norton, Sudbury, Westwood, Marshfield and Wellesley. To plan your celebration, read our guides to pairings for the grill, drinking rosé and enjoying New England Beers.

From all of us at Roche Bros., we hope you have a great long weekend!

New Downtown Crossing store Now Open in Boston!

By Dena Zigun April 14, 2015

Pin It

All of us at Roche Bros. are excited to announce that our new Downtown Crossing supermarket is now open in the newly restored Burnham Building on Summer St

Roche Bros. is the first large-scale grocery store to be built in Boston’s Downtown Crossing and we are delighted to bring our new neighborhood fresh food, favorite national grocery brands, local artisan finds, New England flavors and a wide selection of creative prepared foods.

For Roche Bros.  owners Rick & Ed, opening a new store in Boston expands our presence in the heart of the city where Roche Bros. began: “The Roche family has been part of the Boston community since 1952 when our dad Pat and Uncle Bud opened a small neighborhood meat market in Roslindale Square. We’ve grown up and expanded over the past 60 years, and it is special to our family to be opening a new location right in the very heart of the city. We are honored to have earned this place in the community and are looking forward to serving our new neighborhood,” said Rick.

Our new market, located at 8 Summer Street, is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays.

At the street level, you will find an extensive array of ready-to-eat food – including satisfying meals, healthy snacks and sweet treats for any time of day. From creative, sandwiches, soups and salads to breakfast pastries and freshly rolled sushi, you’ll find what you want any time, straight from our kitchen and ready to go. Special highlights include Roche Bros. signature chocolate chip cookies and a coffee bar. Outside the store, enjoy our street-side seating and an outdoor fruit and flower stand.

Downstairs, in the former space of the historic Filene’s Basement, is a full-service supermarket, where you can shop for a vast assortment of fresh food, national and local grocery brands and prepared foods. The market is complete with a bakery, deli, specialty cheeses, high-quality meats at great value and fresh-off-the-boat seafood.

When you need to get a nice dinner on the table but don’t have time for chopping, stop by the produce department’s “Chop Shop” and choose from more than 40 varieties of veggies cut fresh daily in the store, chef-style and recipe-ready. The store will also offer Boston customers full-service catering for business and social events, festive event packages for special occasions, and grocery delivery to the home or office after shopping in the store. Online ordering with home delivery will also be available, like all of our locations.

 

Upcoming Events

On May 7, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the store’s offerings will extend into Summer Street with outdoor sampling booths as part of the “Road to Roche Bros.” new store festivities. Lisa from the Kiss 108 FM Matty in the Morning Show will join us from 4-6pm, and the Downtown Boston Business Improvement District hosts a block party from 5-8:30pm.

On May 21st, Lance Houston and the Bull Radio team join us from 4-6pm to share music and meet customers.  They’ll even give away some tickets to see Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes and Sam Hunt at the Xfinity Center on May 30th!

We will wrap up the festivities with a second acoustic concert from local band Dalton & The Sheriffs on June 4th, 5-7pm.

We look forward to seeing you there and to serving our new neighborhood!

Passover Survival & Celebration Guide!

By Dena Zigun March 24, 2015

Pin It

No one leaves behind the remaining brisket after a big Passover Seder — whether it’s from Our Kitchen, or you made it yourself. After all, it’s easier to reheat leftovers than it is to make suitable Passover food for the rest of the holiday, right?

But when you’ve had enough tzimmes and matzo ball soup for one year, we have the ideas you need to stick with unleavened eating for the whole 8-day holiday – without getting bored.

(If you’re searching for your fix on the traditional holiday menu and getting ready to host your family and friends next week, check out our complete Passover catering menu. Be sure to order by April 1.)

Make a Matzo Pizza
It’s comfort food, Passover style! You’ll want another piece of matzo when it’s topped with a shmear of red sauce and gooey, melted mozzarella cheese. Add fresh mozzarella and basil for a Margherita Pizza or set up a make-your-own party and let everyone choose their toppings.

Fry it up
Everything is better when fried in a pan. Matzo Brei, a traditional dish made with matzo fried with eggs, is satisfying in its simplicity. Start by soaking matzo in water or milk, and breaking it into pieces. Then, fry it in a pan with eggs. Make it sweet by adding bananas and pecans or cinnamon sugar.

Experiment with eggs
Speaking of eggs, a well-known symbol used at the holiday seder, Passover is a great time to make eggs the centerpiece of dinner one night, even without matzo in the mix. Make a frittata or a scramble with herbs and your choice of vegetables. Try Shakshouka, a dish with eggs poached in a sauce containing tomatoes, chili peppers, and onions, that’s typically spiced with cumin.

Pile potatoes on your plate
When bread is out of the question, play with all the great ways to cook with potatoes! Roast them with salt, fresh pepper and olive oil, or turn them into a hash-brown crust to whole a mix of vegetables and cheese.

Create new fish, meat or chicken dishes
Many truly incredible meals aren’t leavened anyway. Passover is the time to try out the fish, meat and chicken dishes you haven’t had a chance to make lately — as long as they don’t contain flour. Bake salmon with fresh herbs, lemon and oil or chicken with figs, balsamic vinegar and a drizzle of honey. Don’t have time to cook? Pick up Olive & Herb Roasted Chicken from Roche Bros. Kitchen.

Sandwich it with Matzo
The options for Matzo sandwiches are endless. Turkey from the deli. Peanut butter & sliced strawberries. Apples and melted brie. Chocolate and marshmallows for matzo s’mores!

Cook with quinoa
It seems like a grain and we eat and cook it like a grain, but in reality, gluten-free quinoa is a seed. And this seed is a complete protein that’s great to serve on Passover. Mix it with your favorite combination of meat, veggies, herbs and spices.

Drink a glass of wine
It’s tradition to have four glasses of wine at the Passover. As the holiday continues, celebrate with wine selections from our stores in Norton, Sudbury, Westwood, Marshfield and Wellesley.

(BONUS: If you’re eating gluten free, you can enjoy all of the suggestions in this guide. Just be sure to use gluten-free matzo!)

Happy Passover from all of us at Roche Bros.

Roche Bros and Sudbury Farms sell both Kosher and non-Kosher foods.
