Imagine the intensely local philosophy of Copenhagen’s Noma expressed in the rich volcanic soils of inland Catalonia and you’ll have a sense of what Fina Puigdeval has been doing at Les Cols, the restaurant she founded in 1990. Housed in a remodeled 15th-century farmhouse where the chef was born, Les Cols offers dramatically simple food that almost never incorporates ingredients from outside its region.
