​Gazpacho

Gazpacho originates from Andalucia in southern Spain where workers traditionally enjoyed it as a cool refreshing liquid lunch. There are many of versions of gazpacho, but it always contains tomatoes, is eaten raw and must be ice cold. Ripe sweet tomatoes are crucial to make a rich flavoursome soup, so gazpacho is best made in the summer.
