While I haven’t had the opportunity to travel to Spain yet, it’s definitely near the top of my list ‘places in the world I have to make it to one day’. Andalusia in the southern region of Spain is where this recipe originates from – with its Mediterranean climate, history and great food, it sounds like a great place to visit to me. Andalusia is also the home to bullfighting, flamenco, the guitar itself and tapas – that great finger food that encourages conversation and eating at the same time.
As the photographer it was not without a little trepidation that I decided to step out from behind the camera and produce something of my own. I decided that gazpacho with its no cooking and few ingredients wasn’t too much of a challenge for my culinary skills.
As the song from ‘The Mighty Boosh’ says Gazpacho is a summer soup. I was intrigued the first time I had this cold tomato soup but it definitely goes down well on a hot summer’s day – or any day in my book.
