In our pueblo blanco, Gaucin, Lola Colon welcomed us to the wonderful La Lateral. And on our second visit Lola called her partner Carlos Patilla out from the kitchen to meet us. I was a rare kind of hospitality that exemplified the ‘Mi casa. Su casa’ attitude we experienced throughout Spain. At the spanking new La Granada Divina also in Gaucin and where we dined three times owner Neal Brown and I exchanged restaurant war stories and parted with big hugs and the shared disappointment that we wouldn’t see other again.
