When I hear the word Gazpacho, I always think of my Mom.  It was her favorite soup during the summer when the ingredients were fresh from the garden.

What does gazpacho remind you of?

Gazpacho (Spanish pronunciation: [ɡaθˈpatʃo]; Southern peninsular Spanish: [ɡahˈpa(t)ʃo]), also called Andalusian gazpacho, is a cold soup made of raw, blended vegetables.[1] It originated in the southern regions of the Iberian peninsula, specifically Andalusia, and spread into the Algarve regions. Gazpacho is widely eaten in Spain and Portugal, particularly during hot summers, as it is refreshing and cool.

Today is National Gazpacho Day

National Gazpacho Day, on December 6th, recognizes a flavorful soup that cooks serve cold. Gazpacho is typically a tomato-based vegetable soup. Originating in the southern Spanish region of Andalucia, Gazpacho is widely consumed in Spanish cuisine, usually during the summer months.

The original Spanish recipe includes stale bread, tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Other ingredients include olive oil, wine, vinegar, water, and salt.

From reading about Gazpacho, there seem to be several different versions of this dish.  Gazpacho was one of my mother's favorite.  She made it chunky. Some recipes call for using a blender to make it smooth.  Either way, it is a refreshing cold soup.

I prefer the smooth-blended kind. I have a Jose Andres cookbook with several versions for different seasons; the cherry gazpacho made with sour pie cherries is wonderful, and the beet gazpacho is beautiful garnished with sliced orange.

Gazpacho reminds me of summer days on our terrace as a child, having gazpacho with ice cubes to chill it down.
I still like my mother's recipe best (no onions, only garlic), blended and with little dishes of garnish (boiled egg, cubes of peppers and bread) to serve as you wish.

When we were toddlers in Spain we used to make our own "gazpacho" in restaurants, mashing up bread, salt etc. in our water glasses. Spanish waiters are very kid-friendly!

In the summer days I sometimes make Salmorejo instead (only tomatoes, also garnished with boiled egg and if you like Jamón Iberico) because usually in Germany peppers have a hard time ripening and might only be available when the days turn cooler again.
