Perhaps Gazpacho is most representative recipe of Andalucia, it is a kind of soup with tomato as star ingredient. It’s fresh, it’s healthy and it’s absolutely delicious (especially in hot weather), and  it’s easy to prepare!

– 1 kg of tomatoes
– 1-2 green pepper
– 1 onion
– 1 cucumber
– 2-3 garlic cloves
– White vinegar
– Olive oil

We will start cutting the ingredients, even we will process them on a blender if you cut them they will fit in the blender cup. Cut an onion in 6 to 8 pieces. Remove the seeds of 2 green peppers, and cut them in small pieces. Remove the ends of a cucumber and peel it, left some skin as it will prevent its repetition. Finally cut 1 kg of tomatoes in about 8 pieces, you’d better choose mature tomatoes because they will be more tasty. You can reserve a bit of those ingredients and chop them in order to serve together with gazpacho, it’s usually served this way so people can choose which vegetable they would like to add.

Add all the ingredients in the blender cup. Furthermore add 2 o 3 garlic cloves, but first cut them in half and remove the central part which will prevent from repeating. Add also 1 coffee spoon of salt, a quarter of glass of white vinegar. Mix with the blender for some minutes until it becomes liquid, after mixing taste it to check if you need more salt, or if it is too dense add water and mix again for a while. You can also add some ground pepper or ice in the blender.

Normally is served with picatostes (toasted bread cut in small cubes) and a bit of vegetables chopped.

Jamie Oliver has been drawn to the kitchen since he was a child working in his father’s pub-restaurant. He showed not only a precocious culinary talent but also a passion for creating (and talking about) fresh, honest, delicious food. In the past decade, the shaggy-haired «Naked Chef» of late-’90s BBC2 has built a worldwide media conglomerate of TV shows, books, cookware and magazines, all based on a formula of simple, unpretentious food that invites everyone to get busy in the kitchen. And as much as his cooking is generous, so is his business model — his Fifteen Foundation, for instance, trains young chefs from challenged backgrounds to run four of his restaurants.

Now, Oliver is using his fame and charm to bring attention to the changes that Brits and Americans need to make in their lifestyles and diet. Campaigns such as Jamie’s School Dinner, Ministry of Food and Food Revolution USA combine Oliver’s culinary tools, cookbooks and television, with serious activism and community organizing — to create change on both the individual and governmental level.
