“Gazpacho originated in Andalusia, the southern section of Spain. For the best flavor, you must be sure to use very ripe tomatoes, otherwise the taste falls flat. This recipe is from the Antigua Casa Sobrino de Botin in Madrid, and is in A Treasury of Great Recipes by Mary and Vincent Price. Prep time includes 1 hour of soaking, Cook time is chill time. Posted for ZWT.”
