Your Guide to an Organic Thanksgiving

By Cameron Madge November 19, 2014

Pin It

From the produce department to the grocery aisles, Roche Bros. is stocked with what you need to make your family’s Thanksgiving organic this year. Here are our top tips for making your search for organics easy throughout the store.

 

Produce

From Full Circle Organic and Olivia’s to Earthbound Farms and Happy Valley, if your family chooses organic produce, Roche Bros. has dozens of offerings for you.

For Thanksgiving, roast organic potatoes, fingerling potatoes or yams with fresh herbs and olive oil. Select organic acorn and butternut squash for a silky soup that celebrates fall. Buy the butternut squash already peeled to save time in the kitchen! Also try it in our new recipe for Wild Rice Stuffing with Butternut Squash.

Sauté organic portabella mushrooms with fresh thyme, onions and butter for a healthful side dish. Complement the earthy flavors with a rich casserole made with organic green beans or combination of broccoli and cauliflower.

Why do some families choose organic produce from Roche Bros.?  According to the Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA), fruits and vegetables that are labeled and sold as organic are grown without using most pesticides or fertilizers with synthetic ingredients; there is no irradiation treatment; seeds and transplants are chemical-free; the fertilizer is natural. Choosing organics can help lower your exposure to these compounds and help protect farm workers and ecosystems.

When you are looking for organic offerings, keep an eye out for our organic logo in specially marked sections in the produce department, or search “organic” in the produce department of our online shopping app.

 

Turkey and Other Meat Options

Stop by the Roche Bros. meat department for your organic holiday turkey and other meats.

We are proud to offer whole organic turkeys from Plainville. This healthful, minimally processed choice for your holiday bird is grown free-range with no antibiotics and fed a vegetarian diet containing grains that are certified organic. Certified organic grains are free of synthetic chemicals such as pesticides and fertilizers, not using any genetically modified organisms, and grown on farmland that has been chemical free for at least three years.

Also find a host organic meat offerings to add to your holiday table, including organic ground turkey, also from Plainville, certified organic chicken from Bell & Evans and Laura’s Lean Grass Fed Organic Beef.

 

The Groceries

Throughout our grocery aisles, find the organic items you need for everything from savory sides to sweet dessert.

We have Full Circle Organic Cranberry Sauce for a classic side by itself, Farmers Market Organic Pumpkin Puree for all of your festive pies and desserts, organic baking mixes and flours for any finishing touch you have in mind, and more.

Bring our handy organic grocery list to lead you through the aisles and ensure you get home with everything you need for the Thanksgiving feast!

 

Enjoy Thanksgiving the organic way at Roche Bros.!

Corporate Culinary Innovation Chef, Brian Dunn, is teaming up with 105.7 WROR to help make your holidays special and stress-free.  How?  Tune in to 105.7 each weekday at 5pm for a commercial free ride home with great music.  At 5:55pm, listen for the Dinner’s Dunn report for a new tip each day.  Then visit this page to get more tips, links to recipes, and other holiday helpers.

 

FOR WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19TH, THE TIP OF THE DAY IS . . . 

Try some new squash!  While butternut squash is a fall favorite, Thanksgiving is a great time to try other delicious squash varieties.  One new favorite is Sweet Dumpling.  It is beautiful stuffed – a great vegetarian entree or side – and easy to prepare and serve as you can eat the skin!

Roche Bros. produce departments have an array of winter squashes on display.  Look for recipe cards in store, or try Chef Brian Dunn’s recipe for Sweet Dumpling Squash Stuffed with Truffle Mushroom Cous Cous right here!

 

FOR TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 18TH, THE TIP OF THE DAY IS . . . 

Brine your turkey!  For a truly succulent main dish, add moisture and flavor to your turkey by soaking it in a mixture of water, salt and spices.  The Roche Bros. grocery department carries Turkey Perfect brine kits with a variety of seasoning blends so you can get the flavors just right.  Or for an even easier solution, order a pre-brined turkey from our meat department and cross another item off your list!

 

FOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17TH, THE TIP OF THE DAY IS . . .

Even chefs use stuffing mix!  Thanksgiving wouldn’t be the same without stuffing.  To save time and still offer a delicious side, Roche Bros. Corporate Culinary Innovation Chef, Brian Dunn, adds mirpoix – a blend of chopped carrots, onions, and celery – and his favorite fresh sausage to the stuffing mix, adding flavor while easing stress.

Our Roche Bros. and Sudbury Farms locations have all of your Thanksgiving grocery needs on display – stock up today and save time later!

Prefer to make your own stuffing from scratch?  Try our new Tidbits Magazine recipe for Wild Rice & Butternut Squash Stuffing , sure to add some flair to your Thanksgiving Dinner.

Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work 2014

By Cameron Madge November 13, 2014

Pin It

We’re honored to be featured for the 7th straight year as one of the Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work in 2014! In addition to cracking the top 20, we were also recognized as a standout for the longevity of our employees. As Globe Correspondent Taryn Luna writes:

There are 4,700 workers at Roche Bros.’ 20 stores, and the average job tenure of a full-time employee is more than 11 years.

“They have a great opportunity to develop long-term relationships with the people they work with,” said Aimee Morgida, the company’s director of operations. “They get to know each other’s skill set, the value someone can bring, and where they might need more support.”

Many workers have been with Roche Bros. for their entire adult life, she said.

Morgida said employee loyalty creates a family-like environment in the grocery stores, at corporate headquarters, and even outside the workplace. If someone’s parent passes away, for example, it’s not unusual to attend a wake and find a line out the door of Roche Bros. workers waiting to pay their respects.

“You can’t describe it,” she said. “People show up. We really are a family.”

We would like to thank all of our associates whose loyalty and dedication has named us one of the Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work again in 2014. For those who are not already a part of our family, please visit our careers page to see what a career at Roche Bros. can do for you.

Honoring Our Veterans

By Cameron Madge November 08, 2014

Pin It

This November, we’re honoring our veteran’s with two new programs to help our veterans and their families. We ask that you please take a moment to read about these new programs, and consider making a contribution to help our veterans at a very stressful and difficult time in their lives. Thank you.

 

DAV Candy Bars

DAV

Starting the first week in November, we will be partnering with the DAV to sell candy bars that benefit the Disabled American Veterans of Massachusetts. When you purchase one of these bars, 100% of the proceeds goes directly to the DAV, and help them accomplish their goals of helping our veterans.

The DAV is dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. They accomplish this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life.

This includes providing free, professional assistance to veterans and their families in obtaining benefits and services earned through military service, representing the interests of disabled veterans, their families, their widowed spouses and their orphans before Congress, the White House and the Judicial Branch, as well as state and local government, and much more.

They also help provide transportation for disabled veterans to and from appointments at VA Medical Facilities. Since the inception of the DAV Transportation Program, volunteer drivers have accumulated 520,000 hours of service while transporting close to 240,000 veterans a grand total of 7,150,000 miles – enough for about 287.6 trips around the Earth.

For more information about the DAV, and more ways you can help, please visit their website: http://www.dav.org/

 

Fisher House Boston

Fisher House Boston

Also this month, help Fisher House Boston serve military and veteran families in their time of need by donating your reusable bag rebate. Just use reusable bags when you check out at Roche Bros. and Sudbury Farms, and ask the cashier to donate your 5¢ bag rebate to Fisher House Boston.

Fisher House Boston is located at the VA Boston Healthcare Medical facility in West Roxbury, and was the 46th Fisher House to be built in the country. They recognize not only the special sacrifices made by our men and women who serve in uniform, but also their loved ones. The Fisher House Boston is a home away from home where our military families can stay while a loved one is receiving in house treatment at one of the VA  medical centers. The homes enable family members to be close to loved ones at the most stressful times, and are provided completely free of charge.

For more information on the Fisher House in Boston, please visit their website: http://fisherhouseboston.org/

62nd Anniversary!

By Cameron Madge October 14, 2014

Happy 62nd Anniversary to Roche Bros.!

On October 16, 1952, our father and uncle, the late Pat and Bud Roche opened their first store in Roslindale.

Their slogan – “no better meat sold anywhere” – spoke to their focus on quality. Pat and Bud’s belief in the “Golden Rule” assured great customer service.

Our business grew over the years, opening stores, and becoming a part of the local communities. Today, we have 18 Roche Bros. and Sudbury Farms stores serving the Bay State and employ more than 4,700 associates. Over 300 of these associates have worked with the Roche Bros. family for more than 20 years!

It’s our 62nd anniversary and what better way to celebrate than by eating cake! Visit any of our stores on October 16th and enjoy some cake. We want all of our customers to be a part of our celebration.

As we mark this milestone, we are excited about what lies ahead! In early 2015, Roche Bros. will open our first store in downtown Boston, in the historic Filene’s Basement location.

We’re also celebrating our newest type of store, Brothers Marketplace, which opened this summer in Weston and Medfield. Come check out your neighborhood market with a focus on local artisan foods and scratch-baked pastries.

Now is a great time to join the Roche Bros. team and we are hiring. Check out all of our open positions here: http://www.rochebros.com/careers/

Your family deserves best! Here’s to a bright future of serving you, from our family to yours.

What’s New: An Apple A Day

By Cameron Madge September 30, 2014

Pin It

Apple Basket
At Roche Bros., we can feel fall in the air and we’re excited to celebrate the abundance of apples, fall’s favorite fruit.

Take a walk through our produce department and see the wide selection of apple varieties. Whether you’re looking to sink your teeth into an apple for a snack, bake a pie or anything in between, we have apple varieties for every taste and purpose!
Bake them into our recipe for All-American Apple Pie.

Hollow out some larger apples and use them as a vessel for this Apple-Cranberry Warm-Up, a hot apple cider with a hint of cranberry for a cool fall evening.

Try this simple recipe for Crescent Cheddar Apple Pie: buttery crescent roll dough filled with apples and cheddar cheese and topped with cinnamon and sugar.

Stop by the grocery aisle for some apple butter to spread on your morning toast. And savor apple cider donuts from our bakery.

Here at Roche Bros., now is the time to enjoy your tried-and-true apple favorites and find something new to try, too!
