If you asked me why I love Gazpacho, I could tell you endless reasons…
It is the perfect recipe in our Summer time. It is easy, cheap, healthy and sophisticated. Doubtlessly, it is absolutely awesome!
It can be a drink, an appetizer, a tapa, a dip, a sauce or seasoning, a starter, a main dish, even a dessert. We can eat it at any time of the day and at any time during a meal. It is perfect for a picnic Day, in a cocktail, to take away, as your daily meal (tupperware),… Could it be more perfect?
Spaniards love it. It takes to a multitude of variations for all kind of tastes. It could be a classic gazpacho, or it could be a watermelon or a melon gazpacho. But, if you want a classic gazpacho you have as many recipes as there are families are in Spain – because it is believed that there are so many varieties of gazpacho cooks.
Without a doubt, it is one of the most importants inventions that we have. The rule is there are no rules. Your gazpacho will be unique.
