Innovation + Familiarity
Each Lettuce recipe is a result of an involved process that brings together chefs, farmers, nutritionists, food artisans, designers . . .
. . . and most importantly, you - our customers.
The 4 Pillars of Every Lettuce Recipe
It all starts months in advance, as our chefs work with our urban farmers and nutritionists to plan both what we’ll grow, and the recipes the ingredients will go in, based on what will be in season.
A few weeks in advance, actual recipes start to crystalize – based on how the farms are doing, and feedback from customers.
What finally gets into your delivery, comes together in the last few days and hours – often minutes – based on what’s being harvested from farms, and what’s available from local artisans.
