Carte Blanche will be CLOSED until Thursday, Sept. 24.

Carte Blanche will be closed this coming week - Thursday, Sept. 17 through Sunday, Sept. 20th, as I (Jessie) will be in New York for a wedding, and Colin will be touring with his band. We very much regret any inconvenience and look forward to reopening on Thursday, Sept. 24th.

I sense the time is almost here for roasted squash and apples, Thai curries, cobblers, slow braises, mashed potatoes, pot pies, and of course, mac and cheese!
