4th of July Roundup

Happy 4th of July from Roche Bros.!

You know summer is in full swing when July 4th is upon us! At Roche Bros., we have everything you need to celebrate Independence Day with family and friends.

From that sweet and tangy BBQ flavor to desserts in patriotic shapes and colors, here are our suggestions to make your Fourth of July special:

grill_image

Heating Things Up

If you’re looking to heat things up by firing up the grill – or want a little spice at your cookout – we have all the special items you need to  your BBQ.

For the main course, offer our Certified Angus Prime Grinds and Fenway Franks.

Don’t forget to stop in the bakery for the rolls! And look for gluten-free BBQ options in the grocery aisle.

Make it a Rib Fest with all sorts of fresh ribs in our meat department, with your favorite barbecue sauce. You can also find grill-ready ribs – and a wide array of other marinated meats from chicken thighs to skirt steak – in our meat case. Or bring home a ready-to-go BBQ from Our Kitchen with our Signature Bourbon Grilled Steak Tips or  St. Louis BBQ Ribs! Just heat and serve, without even lighting up the grill.

Add some real cache to your stars-and-stripes celebration with our Chef Ready Lobster Tails. Try them plain or marinated, with your choice of Lemon Rosemary, Lime Vinaigrette, Roasted Garlic, Sweet Teriyaki or Sriracha BBQ.

grilled_veggies

Show off your cooking skills by grilling vegetables to enjoy on the side. From corn on the cob grilled in the husk to rainbow grilled vegetables on skewers, you really can’t go wrong.

Or pick up some ready-to-go side dishes from Our Kitchen. Try some long-time BBQ favorites, such as Mom’s Baked Beans, mac and cheese and cole slaw. Or change it up with roasted fingerling potatoes, mango salad or vegetables with pesto.

When you’re ready for a toast, check out our primer on pairing your grilled meats with wines to enhance their flavor.

 

Playing it Cool

With the sun beating down, some of your guests will surely want to play it cool. Make sure you have these crisp, cool options available for them to enjoy:

Salads: Always a crowd-pleaser, find Bud Roche’s original recipe Homemade Potato Salad in our deli department.

It’s also a great time to try something new! Serve up the new salads from Our Kitchen. Select from spicy, sweet Mango Salad,  Kale Caprese Salad that’s a fresh twist on a classic, Sweet and Sour Rainbow Salad and White and Green Asparagus Salad.

Dips: Our Kitchen’s Guacamole, Seven-Layer Dip and Buffalo Chicken Dip go well with crackers, chips and your crudite platter.

Cheese: For the holiday festivities, why not make your own cheese board? Roche Bros.’ cheese department has everything you need. A traditional French cheese board includes four cheeses: one made with sheep’s milk, one made with cow’s milk, one goat cheese and one blue cheese.

Try Locatelli Pecorino Romano, President Brie, Chavrie Goat Cheese and Salemville Amish Blue. Or ask an expert for suggestions in the cheese department. Add grapes, almonds and a bit of honey and your cheese board is complete.

And if don’t have the time, don’t worry! We have plenty of time to make a cheese board for you, so come to Roche Bros. to pick one up.

Flag_Cake_Picnic

Finishing Sweet

We’re celebrating red, white and blue with an array of Patriotic Desserts in our bakery that are ready for you to bring home! From cakes to tarts to trifles, we have an option for everyone.

Use that sweet final moment to keep things cool with sliced watermelon and popsicles in all colors. On a holiday at this time of year, you’ll need enough frozen delights for kids and grown-ups alike.

Extend the party a little bit longer by circling the grill and roasting marshmallows to make s’mores. We have many choices for graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate throughout the grocery department. For a new twist on this campfire tradition, try our new recipe for “Adult S’mores,” with local ingredients from Vermont!

Happy 4th of July from all of us at Roche Bros.!american_flag_photo

From the grocery aisles to the cheese shop and every department in between, find all sorts of products from local artisans to fill your cart.

 

At breakfast, spread your toast with the all-natural, no-pectin preserves from Bonnie’s Jams, brewed in small batches with just a touch of sugar.jams2

At lunchtime, dress your salad with all-natural salad dressings from Cindy’s Kitchen of Brockton. And keep that salad local with the hydroponic greens from FreshBox Farms, grown in Millis in innovative indoor farms, or the organic sprouts and microgreens from 2 Friends Farm in Attleboro.

For party appetizers, serve your guests a chip-and-dip plate that’s made in Mass., with authentic, gluten-free Mi Nina Tortilla Chips and fresh NOLA’s Salsa. Wash it all down with Spindrift Soda, made with fresh-squeezed fruit and sparkling water.

Your New Year’s Celebration Made Easy

By Sara White December 27, 2015

Pin It

1218WebBanner3

Eat and enjoy at your New Year’s celebration with our ideas for great finger food and appetizers that are easy, festive and fun to eat:

  1. Serve skewers with fresh mozzarella balls, grape tomatoes and fresh basil, with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar on top.
  2. Pick up seafood appetizers in Roche Bros. seafood department. From mini-crab cakes to fried calamari rings, we have fresh seafood apps for everyone at your party.
  3. Speaking of seafood, include seafood stuffed mushrooms in your spread. Find them in the seafood department, or make your own with our recipe for Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms.
  4. Spread boursin cheese on endive. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts and fresh parsley.
  5. Stop by Roche Bros. Kitchen for appetizer platters of fig & brie poppers or beef au poivre wrapped in asparagus. For an Asian themed station, try our new Asian Appetizer Sampler, with crab rangoon, spring rolls and pork dumplings with duck sauce.
  6. Assemble slices of smoked salmon on rice crackers with cream cheese and a sprig of dill. For half the batch, replace the cracker with a cucumber round!
  7. Medjool dates with melting cheese and bacon! Remove the pits of medjool dates. Fill the dates with goat cheese or gorgonzola. Wrap in bacon and bake.
  8. Roast lamb bites in the oven and pair them with mint jelly. Before cooking, marinate the lamb in olive oil, fresh-squeezed lemon, rosemary and thyme. Pair it with mint jelly.
  9. Make-your-own or bring home deviled eggs. We’re offering truffled deviled eggs in packs of 5. For a twist on the classic, hard boil the eggs, remove the cooked yolks and blend with avocado and a little hot sauce instead of mayonnaise.
  10. Visit Roche Bros. Kitchen for sweet & sour meatballs by the pound. Or buy frozen meatballs to heat and serve with a choice of sauces: marinara, honey Dijon and buffalo!
  11. Slice a 1-lb. Kielbasa and cover it in a pot with ½ cup of ketchup and ½ cup of brown sugar. Heat on the stove until the sauce turns to a syrup and serve.
  12. Bake up olive puffs! Wrap a pitted kalamata olive in crescent dough. Then, bake until golden brown and they’re ready to serve.
  13. Layer baguette slices with sliced pears and gorgonzola. Melt the cheese in the oven. Top with dried cranberries and chopped walnuts.
  14. Take popcorn up a notch with a popcorn bar, set up with a wide array of toppings. Assemble individual bowls with sea salt, Italian seasoning, chili powder, cinnamon sugar, M&Ms, grated cheese and more!
  15. Wrap prosciutto around cantaloupe balls, and serve with a toothpick.

From all of us at Roche Bros., we wish you a Happy 2016!

Top 10 Ways to Add Flair to Your Christmas Celebrations

By Sara White December 19, 2015

Pin It

It’s time for festive celebrations with friends, family and, of course, great food. Create new signatures that everyone will enjoy and remember with these tips:

 

Have quick bites ready when your guests arrive.

From seafood sliders to stuffed mushrooms, your celebration will be great from the first bite with tempting finger food ready and waiting – and easy to find in the Seafood Department and in Our Kitchen. Also, choose from a wide variety of our own dips, including the popular Seven-Layer and melt-in-your-mouth Caramelized Onion.

Turn your cheese display into something festive … and minty.

Your cheese board will be merry with Sartori Peppermint Parmesan, English Stilton Cheeses and baked brie in a wide assortment of flavors from apricot to apple pie.

Deepen flavor with fresh herbs.

Whether you’re serving a spiral cut ham, a Frenched rack of Berkshire Black pork or another show-stopping main course, give it flavor with fresh herbs. Add springs of thyme, sage or rosemary when you’re cooking meat or vegetables.

Make-your-own sauce.

Turn your home-cooked meal into a restaurant quality centerpiece with simply prepared homemade sauces. Make your sauce in the same pan you used to braise the meat, and deglaze the pan with stock or wine to get all the rich, flavorful bits into the finished product. Check out 4 tips for a better sauce in our Tidbits Magazine.

Elevate your menu by adding flavorful jams to your recipes.

Take your usual holiday recipes to a new level by stirring in some sweet or savory jam. Add a few spoonfuls of Stonewall Kitchen’s Roasted Garlic Onion Jam on the side of your cheese and crackers display, or use it to glaze green beans or carrots. For something sweet, fill butter cookies with Black Raspberry Jam or blend it with Balsamic Vinegar for a quick-and-easy sauce for pork or chicken.

Choose something new and seasonal for a standout side dish.

Serve your main course on top of mashed potatoes that aren’t basic. Add horseradish and roasted garlic or try our recipe for Caramelized Onion & Gruyere Mashed Potatoes. Find new twists on holiday sides made in our kitchen and ready-to-go, from Potato & Brussels Sprouts Hash to Rosemary Root Vegetables.

Make it fun for the kids.

The children at your celebration will have smiles on their faces – and will eat well, too – when you serve pizza cut into festive shapes with cookie cutters! Set up a cookie-decorating table to keep them busy while the food is cooking, with gingerbread cookies, icing and a variety of candies.

Give the day a sweet and spicy punch.

Get ready to toast with holiday punch! Stir up something sweet and sparkly with pear puree and Prosecco. A red wine punch with brandy, raspberries, oranges and lemons is sure to please a crowd. Or make it warm and spicy with apple cider, brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves and allspice.

perfect-holiday-punch

Bake up some little sweets.

Bite-size sweets and treats make dessert exciting, and they’re fun to make, too. Try our new recipe for Apricot Linzer Cookies. Or make chocolate mousse and serve it in mini shot glasses with whipped cream and crushed peppermints on top!

Serve sweet, warm gingerbread … your way.

There’s something nostalgic about gingerbread. Find one type to add to your dessert table or serve a mix of gingerbread treats, from a loaf cake to trifle, with a trip to our bakery.

 

From all of us at Roche Bros., we wish you wonderful holiday celebrations!

10 Ways to Give Your Thanksgiving Traditions a Twist

By Sara White November 21, 2015

Pin It

Celebrate Thanksgiving with all of your family and friends’ favorite traditions – plus some updates that will surely become next year’s signature dish.

Here are our top tips for giving your classic Thanksgiving traditions a new twist:

 

Modern takes on your holiday bird. If your turkey recipe needs an update, try cooking it a different way this year. Braise it to ensure it stays moist or brine it in a bag. Or stuff it with our Roasted Chestnut Mushroom Fennel Stuffing!

Other special entrees to go with your turkey. Give your turkey an entrée partner with a homemade beef roast or a Berkshire Black Pork Roast. Or poach a side of salmon with lemon and fresh herbs.

Side dishes that steal the show. In addition to mashed potatoes and green bean casserole, serve standout side dishes with flair, such as spicy sweet potatoes with chipotle, butternut squash with spinach and walnuts or roasted cauliflower with red onions and fresh thyme.

New fall salads. Lighten up – and brighten up – your spread with our new Kale Quinoa Cinnamon Apple Salad and Roasted Squash, Orzo & Fig Salad, available in the deli.

Cranberry sauce made at home. Thanksgiving isn’t the same without cranberry sauce! Make it yourself with this recipe this year, or stop by for some Cranberry Orange Relish, made fresh in our kitchen.

Hard cider to go with your meal. Pair your turkey dinner with effervescent, slightly sweet, hard apple cider. Select from a wide array of options at Roche Bros. in Norton, Sudbury, Westwood, Marshfield and Wellesley.

Not the usual cheese and crackers. Elevate your prep-party apps with our new Sour Cherry Cheese Topper. Made with crunchy crumbles of buttery sweet Effie’s Oatcakes, almonds and Dalmatia Sour Cherry Spread, this cheese enhancer is available with Brie or Vermont Farmstead Lille. Also try a Pumpkin Spice Party Torta.

Succulents in your flower arrangements. From beautiful rosettes in shades of greens and purples to prickly aloe to cacti, succulents add elegance to your holiday floral decor. Check out our top recommendations for how to use them.

Make it organic or gluten free. It’s easier to make your Thanksgiving organic or gluten-free with Your Guide to an Organic Thanksgiving and Your Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Grocery List.

Something sweet with pumpkin or ginger … or both.

Along with your traditional pumpkin pie, offer our pumpkin baby cakes and pumpkin cream cheese rolls. For a warm and spicy update on the usual, enjoy our new recipe for Gluten-Free Gingered Pumpkin Pie.

 

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family from all of us at Roche Bros.!

Your Guide to an Organic Thanksgiving

By Sara White November 19, 2015

Pin It

Now more than ever, each Roche Bros. location is stocked full of organic items for you to choose. From the produce department to the grocery aisles, here are our top tips for making your search for organics easy.

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.

This Thanksgiving, roast organic 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 recipe for Wild Rice Stuffing with Butternut Squash.

Sauté organic portabella mushrooms with fresh thyme, onions and butter for a healthy 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 healthy, 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 of organic meat offerings to add to your holiday table, including 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 is perfect for this Gluten-Free Gingered Pumpkin Pie recipe, and organic baking mixes and flours for any finishing touch you have in mind.

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.!

Tasty Tailgating Roundup

By Sara White September 28, 2015

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 bring the “Tasty” to your next tailgating party.

First Half

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

New this season, our Cheese Department is now carrying Tasty Tailgating Snack Platters! With a few different varieties available, there’s something here for everyone with different combinations of crackers, cheese and toppings.

If you swing by our Kitchen, you’ll see a massive 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 even 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 and golden BBQ! 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 of our Tailgating spread.  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 going to be cooking on the grill. Switch things up a bit by trying on of our flavored burgers such as the Steakbomb burger, Bacon and Cheddar, or Portabella Swiss.

We also have Italian sausage and Bratwurst available, which are always a crowd pleaser. Grill up and finish 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 both excellent choices to just heat and serve. Of course, you’ll need a couple sides too. Cole Slaw or Potato Salad from our Deli offer easy options that your guests will love.

Finish everything off with some desserts from our Bakery. Football Field Cakes are a perfectly sized to satisfy the kids at a great price point, and Football Decorated Half Moons are a fun and creative way to get them involved in the game! In addition, our Brownie and Cookie snack plates are great for smaller gatherings and give your guests a taste of gourmet cookies and brownies.

We hope you found something that peaks your interest, and 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!

Tzimmes, Kugel, and Kreplach, Oh My! Deciphering Dishes in Our Stores This Weekend

By Sara White September 11, 2015

Pin It

rosh_hashana300

Tzimmes? Kugel? Kreplach?  What are all these dishes and treats you’re seeing in our store this weekend with names you can’t decipher?

Some of them look inviting, while others can hardly be identified, even upon closer inspection. Then, you find the name of the dish and you’re truly stumped.

The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, begins Sunday evening, and all of these foods are traditional for of the holiday.

Here is Roche Bros. primer on what these traditional dishes are all about and why you should try them, whether you celebrate the holiday or not:

 

From Our Kitchen:

Tzimmes – This sweet, stew-like mixture of slightly mashed carrots, sweet & white potatoes, dried apricots and prunes is served as a side dish. Tzimmes is cooked slowly over low heat and flavored with honey. The name comes from the Yiddish words that mean “for” (tzim) and “eating” (esn).

Kasha Varnishkas – Kasha is buckwheat groats, which are cooked like a grain and mixed with bow tie pasta. It’s mixed with slow-cooked onions.

Potato Kugel – Kugel is a baked sweet or savory pudding made with eggs and a starch, such as potato or noodles. Potato kugel is offered as a side dish at Rosh Hashanah. Sweet noodle kugel is typically served when breaking the Yom Kippur fast. The word kugel, from Middle High German times, means sphere, globe or ball. It’s likely that the Yiddish name referred to the round, puffed-up way that the dish was formerly served. It’s now more common to make them in square or rectangular pans.

Gefilte Fish – Gefilte fish, derived from the Yiddish word for “stuffed fish,” is made from mixture of poached white fishes that are ground, mixed with a variety of spices and boiled. It’s served cold, as an appetizer, with horseradish. It’s popular not only for the Jewish New Year, but also during other holidays.

Matzo Balls (a.k.a. Knaidlach) – The Yiddish word for dumpling is Knaidlach, but in the store, you’ll see the more common name, “Matzo balls.” These dumplings made with matzo meal and eggs are formed into balls and cooked in boiling water. You’ll find them in chicken soup with, or in place of, noodles.

 

From Our Deli

Knishes – A snack or side of Eastern European origin, knishes are made of puff pastry dough filled with beef or potato.

Kreplach – Dropped in soup or pan-fried, kreplach are the Jewish take on a wonton or ravioli. These small dumplings consist of pasta filled with ground meat, mashed potato or other filling.

 

From Our Bakery

Mandel Bread – Meaning literally “almond bread,” this crunchy almond cookie is basically the Jewish version of biscotti. You’ll sometimes find them with chocolate chips.

Rugelach – These baked treats, usually filled with fruit preserves and nuts, are made in a crescent shape, with a triangle of dough wrapped around the filling. The name comes from a Yiddish root word related to “twist” so Rugelach is defined, essentially, as “little twists,” based on their shape.

Kichel – This light airy cookie is made with egg and sugar. One cookie is a Kichel, and the plural is Kichlach. They are made by rolling out the dough into a flat, cracker-like thickness, and cutting it into diamond shapes.

Taiglach – Knotted nuggets of dough boiled in honey, Taiglach is the plural for the Yiddish word “teigel,” which means “little dough.”

 

If you celebrate Rosh Hashanah, we wish you happy new year filled with wonderful flavors and food. If not, we hope you take this opportunity to try something new!

Rosh Hashanah – Favorites and New Finds for your Table

By Dena Zigun September 10, 2015

Pin It

While the beginning of the new Jewish calendar is an important holiday, it just wouldn’t be Rosh Hashanah without family, friends, and a few favorite foods – both symbolic and delicious.  Try a sampling of the wide variety of apples in-season, paired with local raw varietal honey.  Welcome your holiday guests with traditional favorites including cocktail-sized potato pancakes, chopped liver, kishke, and beef kreplach from our Deli, or a new classic-in-the-making, like our Cheese Shop’s Baked Brie with Apples and Honey.

Preparing a moist and tender brisket is easier than you think with these tips. Or if you prefer to focus on time with your family, Our Kitchen’s traditionally slow roasted brisket  is effortless – just heat and eat!  Along with the brisket, add our new Mahogany Chicken to your table. We oven roast it and coat it with a spiced marmalade glaze. Then we top it with figs and cranberries for a festive taste of fall.

Match your mains with sides aplenty.  Classic offerings, including roasted Brussels sprouts, vegetarian tzimmes, or butternut squash praline casserole, are available in Our Kitchen alongside new additions, such as Carrots & Cranberry Basmati Rice and Israeli Chopped Salad.

For dessert, try the recipe for simply elegant Baked Stuffed Apples with Honey-Marscarpone from our fall Tidbits Magazine, or pull out all the stops with a homemade Apple Cranberry Strudel.  Make it easy by visiting our bakery for traditional honey cake, coconut or almond macaroons, and of course your round challah.

For more inspiration, turn to our article in the Jewish Advocate for five things you might not know belong on your Rosh Hashanah table. Then head to Roche Bros. for everything you need to get your celebration underway so that you can focus your High Holidays on what really matters – family, festivity, forgiveness and a fruitful new year.  Shannah Tovah!
