For the dish I am about to share, let me take you on a virtual trip to Seville, the artistic and cultural capital of Andalusia. It’s less than 3 hours by car from Granada, and if you are travelling from Madrid, the trip is 2 1/2 hours via Spanish TGV trains, or AVE. Should you wish to drive, the trip is about 5 hours, and may I suggest a stop-over in Cordoba to see the Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos and the Mezquita, of course.
Below is the La Giralda, the Moorish bell tower of Seville’s Cathedral and happens to be one of my favorite landmarks. The tower was built as a minaret in 1198. The weather-vane or giraldillo has given La Giralda its name.
During the summer, I usually enjoy a bowl of gazpacho for lunch or light dinner. You may also serve gazpacho as cold appetizer.
Seville is scorchingly hot in the summertime and the locals have devised many ways to deal with the searing heat of their summers. Not the least of them is the cold soup. Gazpacho, the most famous of these wonderfully refreshing soups is simple to make, and even easier to enjoy!
