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.
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.
