Gazpacho or summer in a bowl! There’s no more seasonal than this cold soup. We need freshness and all the vegetables and herbs, mixed or not, are there to bring it to us, this saving freshness in the event of a heat wave. In Spain, particularly in Andalusia, we mix bread and vegetables. In the Alentejo, Portugal, we cut the vegetables into small cubes. For the rest, it’s pretty much the same. Ice water or ice cubes, crushed or chopped garlic, large croutons or small croutons of bread…, it doesn’t matter. The important thing is that we enjoy the cool.
