The opening chef at Vee Vee is out. According to co-owner Dan Valachovic, "over the next few weeks we will be transitioning to our spring menu being created by our new (yet to be named) chef, with the guidance of our friend Andy Husbands of Tremont 647."

The Jamaica Plain Gazette reports that bakery Sweet Finnish is closed. Maybe JP has maxed out on baked goods, with Canto 6, Blue Frog, Fiore's, Quisqueya, Estrella, Ula Cafe, Sweet Christopher, etc.

Speaking of Blue Frog, the Gazette reports the bakery may be moving from Green Street to Centre Street, in the space now occupied by the Christopher Kokoras Insurance Agency. The spot would give Blue Frog lots more space -- and seating!

The Gazette also says the Centre Street City Feed has pushed back its opening date to late May or early June, due to a delay getting building permits.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
