PassoverHeader

Whether you want to cook a spectacular Passover dinner yourself or take the meal home with you to heat and serve – or something in between – Roche Bros. has everything you need to make this Passover a special one. This year Passover is April 10 to April 28. The first night of the holiday is celebrated on Monday, April 10.

Here’s what you need to know to plan your best seder menu yet, and to make your family’s meals throughout the whole eight-day holiday flavorful and easy:

 

Appetizers

Passover appetizers are full of tradition, and for many people, they’re the best part of the meal.

Take home Chopped Chicken Liver and Gefilte Fish, with a side of horseradish. The holiday just wouldn’t be the same without the aroma of Chicken Soup with Matzo Balls simmering on the stove.

You’ll also find all the matzo and matzo crackers you need – both regular and gluten-free – in our grocery department.

 

Entrées

Whether you make your own or bring it home, you can’t go wrong with brisket as your Passover main course.

Other traditional choices include roast chicken or turkey, and chicken breasts stuffed with matzo stuffing. Try our recipe for Whole Roasted Lemon-Thyme Chicken, with fresh-squeezed lemon and savory thyme. Find all of the main course meats you need for any recipe in Roche Bros.’ meat department – or take it with you, from Our Kitchen to your table.

 

Side Dishes

From fresh spring vegetable side dishes to traditional Passover accompaniments, your options are virtually endless.

In Our Kitchen, we’ll be roasting fingerling potatoes, as well as Brussels sprouts, and making our own Homemade Potato Kugel. We’ll be glazing carrots with maple syrup, grilling asparagus and making matzo stuffing, with mushrooms or spinach or plain and simple.

If you’re looking to make a colorful side dish, pair your chicken or brisket with a  rainbow of vegetables. Mix fresh sweet potatoes, red and yellow peppers, zucchini and onions, with olive oil and your choice of fresh herbs. Roast them slowly in the oven at a low temperature so they’ll come out bursting with beauty and flavor.

Dessert

Just because everyday cakes and cookies aren’t part of the Passover tradition, that doesn’t mean you have to skip dessert. Roche Bros. has all sorts of great unleavened choices  to satisfy your family’s sweet tooth.

Find all flavors and sizes of macaroons in our bakery department. And steal the show with Our Own Flourless Chocolate Decadence Cake. This rich, fudgy creation will be the pinnacle of your meal and wow all of your guests. Bake your own dessert centerpiece with our recipe for a light and airy Mocha-Almond Meringue Cake with rich mocha filling.

The whole meal catered for you!

If you’re looking for a home-style Passover meal without all the work, order everything you need from Roche Bros. catering service by special order.

In addition to Roast Brisket as an entree, we are offering Stuffed Matzo Chicken Breasts, Orange Honey Chicken Breasts and Roast Plainville Turkey, ready to heat and serve at home.

A full dinner for 8-10 people with the entrée of your choice includes the following: 1 pound of Chopped Chicken Liver or 8 pieces of Gefilte Fish, 3 quarts of Chicken Soup and 12 Matzo Balls, your choice of two 4-pound Side Dishes, and a Brownie and Macaroon Platter.

Happy Passover from all of us at Roche Bros!

We encourage ordering ahead to ensure availability. 

Roche Bros. and Sudbury Farms are not kosher establishments.

By Sara White October 14, 2016

As we mark our 64th anniversary as your locally owned and operated family supermarket, it means so much to us to have you shop at Roche Bros. every week. In honor of this milestone, we’re celebrating the items we sell that make us who we are … and keep customers coming back every week.

Stop by the deli for our own homemade potato salad, made with the original recipe Bud Roche created in 1978. While you’re there, pick up some of our juicy home-cooked roast beef, made with only Certified Angus Prime beef, known for superior marbling, firmness and tenderness.

Speaking of Prime beef, you’ll also find signature offerings in the meat department. Our Certified Angus Prime Grinds start with the same Certified Angus Beef as our roast beef and then is ground in store the day every day. For memorable night on the grill or easy dinner in a pan, try it in the form of Pub Burgers, Sliders, and six mouth-watering flavored patties: Mushroom & Swiss, Onion & Pepper, Bacon, Bacon & Cheddar, Cracked Black Pepper and Steakbomb. Also find our own marinated meats, ready-to-grill, sear, braise or roast, with all-natural marinades – from spicy, sweet Honey Buffalo to tropical Caribbean Mango.

When there is cause for celebration, plan your menu around our extra thick cuts of steak, including Kansas City Sirloin Strip Steak, Cowboy Semi-Boneless Rib Eye Steak, Big Daddy Porterhouse Steak and our Double Thick Tenderloin Steak. And don’t miss the chance to serve our sweet and beautiful Honey Crunch Ham or Turkey for the holidays.

And enjoy one of our newer offerings, Local Harvest Natural Beef, from humanely raised, antibiotic-free, Angus-breed cattle, locally raised here in New England.

We’ve had some traditions in Roche Bros. Kitchen for years, and our smoky, tender Bourbon Grilled Steak Tips certainly fit the bill for a satisfying, flavorful and ready to heat and serve meal. And visit us on Thursdays for “Six Buck Cluck,” when you can get our rotisserie chicken for $6. Complete the meal with your choice of sides, such as butternut squash and curried cauliflower.

Our Kitchen’s Soups, made from scratch using all natural ingredients and homemade stocks, are warming up in time for the cooler weather. Find comfort in classics, such as our rich, creamy and thick, the New England Clam Chowder and spicy Angus Steak Chili with Beans.

In the produce department, find what’s fresh and in season. We make it easy for you to eat your fruit and veggies with freshly cut options, including cut fruit in crystal bowls, ready to serve at your next party.

Our Own Cheese Spreads, available in the cheese department, combine fresh cream cheese, gourmet cheese selections, and our favorite seasonings. From our best-selling Cheddar-Blue Spread, to Spicy Gouda, blazing Buffalo and sweet Chutney, we have a cheese spread for every palate.

We’re proud to partner with our fresh fish partner, Foley Fish. They search search high and low for the best source for each seafood item, bringing you fresh, off-the-boat, local fish and seafood. From Block Island Swordfish to wild Georges Bank sea scallops to fresh salmon portions, our seafood department has memorable choices for any meal.

Your visit to Roche Bros. isn’t complete without a stop at our bakery. Grab a bucket of cookies, and we won’t tell if you eat one before you leave the store. Select from a wide array of everyone’s favorite pies… Natural Juice Pies, Ricotta Pie, Pumpkin Pie and more. Impress guests with a trifle in a beautiful bowl and celebrate special occasions with Our Bakery’s sheet cakes.

Decorate your table or make someone smile with our floral arrangements, designed and assembled in the store and focused on in-season offerings.

From all of us at Roche Bros., thank you for shopping with us for 64 years and counting!

tasty_tailgating

Don’t come up short when game time rolls around. We’re your game day destination when it comes to food, and our Tasty Tailgating offerings are fresh and ready to go. Sit back, relax, enjoy the game, and let us help you make your tailgating party a great one.

First Half

Everything starts with the Guacamole Outpost.  Game-day weekends feature fresh guacamole, made to order at our Guacamole Carts. It works well as a dip, or as a spread on sandwiches. If you’re more of a do-it-yourself kind of person, fresh Hass Avocadoes are available in our Produce department.

Make your game-time finger food easy, spicy and fun for with our new Build Your Own Nacho Kits, with pre-cooked seasoned ground beef, homemade chips and more! Or go for make your own sliders. Our Build Your Own Grilled Cheddar Bacon Chicken Mini Sliders Kit comes complete with chopped slaw, fresh jalapeños and honey mustard spread, and is served with Roche Bros. Potato Chips.

Our Cheese Department assembles our own Tasty Tailgating Tapas Trays. With a few different varieties available, there’s something for everyone with different combinations of crackers, cheese and toppings.

If you swing by Our Kitchen, you’ll find a wide assortment of appetizers and finger foods that will fit just about any party. Try some of our homemade dips, such as our 7 Layer Dip or Buffalo Chicken Dip with your favorite crackers or chips. We also have other favorite appetizers, like mozzarella sticks, or stuffed potato skins.

Football season is prime time for our Wing Bar. Your guests and family will love the assortment of flavors available, including fan favorites – Buffalo, Teriyaki, and Bourbon! The best part? They’re served hot and ready to eat!

If you’re looking for a little something that will catch everyone’s attention, our Bakery’s Bloomin’ Bread has become a staple for tailgating.  Loaded with mozzarella and pepperoni, your guests will pull it apart in seconds!

Second Half

Make sure you save room for the main course! When half-time rolls around, it’s time to start cooking. Our USDA Prime Burgers are an excellent choice if you’re cooking on the grill. Switch things up a bit by trying on of our flavored burgers such as the Steak Bomb burger, Bacon and Cheddar, or Portabella Swiss.

Our Italian sausage and Bratwurst are also crowd pleasers. Grill them up and finish them off with your favorite toppings like onions or peppers.

If the weather is bad, or if you don’t want the hassle of cooking a big meal, our BBQ Pulled Pork and St. Louis Ribs are tangy, flavorful choices, ready to heat and serve. Add our deli’s cole slaw or homemade potato salad, our bakery’s Blooming Bread — loaded with pepperoni or quesadillas to complete the spread.

Finish everything off with some desserts from our Bakery. Football Field Dessert Cakes and Football Whoopie Pies are festive and fun additions to your spread. And our brownie and cookie snack plates are great for smaller gatherings and give your guests a taste of gourmet cookies and brownies.

We hope  to see you this weekend and every weekend during the football season to help with your tailgating parties. Enjoy the season, and of course, go Pats!

Making a Memorable Memorial Day Menu

By Sara White May 20, 2015

Pin It

Memorial Day is coming up 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!
