Recipe: Gazpacho | Tomato and Cucumber Cold Soup | Spanish

Life is to be lived joyously! And so to another cold soup, this time from Spain. Long ago, this was almost a weekly ritual in our place. Visitors always received a bowl in summer!

Recipe: North African Carrot Dip with Cumin

This is one of the many recipes to do the rounds of family and friends, still popular after all these years. Quite surprising this little dip. Watch the amount of honey that you put in if you have carrots that are especially sweet.

Recipe: Roast Tomato Fresh Chutney | Roast Tomato Dip
