|With Chef Jose Luis Palomino|
On a recent afternoon, we took a drive down to the charming spot for an early dinner. On the walls continue to hang beautiful paintings by a local artist and this time we also got to enjoy a colorful Christmas tree carefully decorated for the holiday season. Chef Jose greeted us, as he does with all his customers, and we sat down to embark on a culinary trip to La Madre Patria - Espana. While we looked at the menu, we munched on some warm bread and an exceptional herb/olive oil mixed with garlic.
