With summer in full swing, what better time to enjoy gazpacho? An Andalusian classic dating back to the 19th century, this wonderfully light dish hits the spot as a lunch, afternoon refresher or starter to your evening meal.
A summer must-have on the Corrigan’s, Bentley’s and Daffodil Mulligan’s menus, each restaurant team put their own fresh twist on this delicious Andalucian classic. As they say – de gazpacho no hay empacho!
Here we are thrilled to present Chef Corrigan’s very own gazpacho recipe, a wonderful way to use simple and fresh ingredients to create this warm weather staple.
