Top Asked Questions

What is ajo blanco and how do you make it?
Stale bread, moistened with vinegar and water, thickened with nuts and spiced up with garlic is a richer proposition than gazpacho’s salad in a bowl, but well chilled, ajo blanco’s natural creaminess makes it a uniquely refreshing proposition, and a lovely starter for a summer lunch or dinner party.
What is Extremaduran ajoblanco?
Extremaduran ajoblanco (ajoblanco extremeño) is a related though somewhat different dish, since it contains egg yolk in the emulsion as well as water, olive oil, garlic and bread, and while vegetables such as tomatoes or cucumbers may be added, it doesn't usually contain almonds.
What is ajoblanco gazpacho?
Spanish gazpacho is well known around the world for being a cold soup, perfect for a warm summer’s day. Ajoblanco is a similar dish and sometimes called “white gazpacho”. However, it has it’s own distinct flavor and is definitely worth trying. The exact origins of this soup are a little unclear, with some saying it has Roman or Greek origins.
What makes ajo blanco different from almond soup?
Despite the name of the soup, garlic is rarely the principal ingredient in ajo blanco, which I would characterise instead as an almond soup. The nuts can certainly take credit for the blanco element anyway: whizzed up with water, they create a kind of milk, which gives the dish its creamy colour and consistency.
