As summer nears and temperatures begin to soar, Spaniards find a perfect respite from the heat in a chilly, refreshing bowl of gazpacho.
The Spanish idiom “de gazpacho no hay empacho” – meaning “You can't get enough of a good thing” – epitomizes their love for the cold tomato soup, widely considered one of the most delectable dishes in Spanish cuisine.
While there are countless different gazpacho recipes across Spain, Madrid-based food blogger Anneke Kooijmans shares her personal favourite with The Local. She can be found writing about gazpacho and other Iberian favourites at Lentils On Friday.
