Weekends in a French Kitchen: Almond Gazpacho


Weekends in a French Kitchen (click to read about the project: here) launched this month though I skipped last week because I was off on a 10-day camping trip with my family around northern California. See...here we are along Fern Canyon in Van Damme State Park.


And if you're game to join the fun, I'm including affiliate links to the cookbooks at the bottom of the post. Yesterday I posted from Daniel Boulud and Dorie Greenspan's cookbook. Today I'm sharing a dish from Mimi Thorisson's A Kitchen in France: A Year of Cooking in My Farmhouse.


Special thanks to the project organizers: Alice of A Mama, Baby and Sharpei in the Kitchen, Christy of Confessions of a Culinary Diva, Tammy of Telling Stories from Chez Nous, and Emily of Blue Bungalow.

This week's selection from Mimi Thorisson's A Kitchen in France: A Year of Cooking in My Farmhouse is Almond Gazpacho. You'll find this recipe on page 85 of the A Kitchen in France: A Year of Cooking in My Farmhouse...we will not be posting the actual recipes on our blogs.



Gazpacho and My Thoughts...

This was a quick lunch on a hot summer afternoon. My husband is doing a gluten-free experiment right now, so I used a gluten-free white bread. It worked well. And while I was dubious about the green grapes - I thought they would be too sweet - I was glad to be mistaken. The flavors were delicate and delicious. I will definitely be making this again soon.
