And if you need a break from shopping, head over to Carmel for some hearty menu additions, courtesy of Chef Sven over at the Carmel Food Company. On the menu this weekend:
Curry Chicken “Colonial Style” in Puff Pastry with Raisins and Almonds
Braised Oxtail and Mushroom Ragout with Fettuccine
Remember, the Carmel Food Company has new hours for winter. Until January, they’re only open for dinner service, and they’re open Wednesday through Monday. But they’re taking reservations for holiday parties–but call sooner rather than later to book yours!
