How do you like your gazpacho? Smooth or chunky? Spicy or sweet? I’m such a gazpacho lover that I like it any way, honestly, and mix it up every time that I make it, depending on my mood and what I have on hand.

This version is a combination of elements from two friends’ recipes: Artist Maud Bryt, and co-Minnesota Food Blogger Laurie Jesch-Kulseth, who writes the lovely blog Relishing It. I love the tomato juice that Laurie uses, and so enjoy the hearty dash of paprika and fresh herbs that Maud calls for – together they make a particularly delicious gazpacho, as spicy or smooth as you want it to be, rich and tomato-y. If it’s a really hot day, Maud adds more cucumbers. Laurie makes her own garden-fresh tomato juice. It’s fun to experiment with adding watermelon, your favorite herbs, or hot chiles.

The key to a really tasty gazpacho is to taste and adjust and make it your own. Recipe for Gazpacho at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly Magazine.

A Little Bit of Me…by Maud Bryt

My obscenely talented friend Maud Bryt shot and edited this little video of me while we were recently vacationing together in Provence (post about our trip coming soon…). I usually cringe and run screaming at the sight of myself on video, but she managed to make something I think is really cool. I love best that this makes me look like I live in France, floating around every day in a sundress, with a tan, drinking rose and cooking fresh fish. Ahhh, if it were true. The outtake clip below demonstrates what an amazing job Maud did above. I’m not exactly a natural on camera…Thank you Maud!
