Featured Recipe: Au Relais-inspired Gazpacho
Several years ago when I lived in Paris for the summer, I seldom went to the same restaurant twice. With a delicious French experience practically every ten feet, why would I? But the one exception was Au Relais, 48 rue Lamarck, 75018 Paris, France (Montmartre). I made the trek back three times because it was that memorable!
I still dream about the gazpacho that was the blackboard special on my second trip. It was made with yellow tomatoes instead of the traditional red and had the most delectable hint of mint. I tried to duplicate it several times last summer during the height of tomato season, but couldn’t find the right mix.
This year I picked up where I left off and eureka! I hit the jackpot. The secret is simplicity. The only seasoning needed is a sprinkle of sea salt and pepper. You finish it with a swirl of fine quality olive oil. Yum! I can almost guarantee today’s recipe for Au Relais-inspired Gazpacho is the most hauntingly unique gazpacho recipe you’ve ever tasted. The secret is fresh off the vine vegetables and herbs. Now is the time when produce is at its peak of freshness.
