Quick Classic Gazpacho

Rating: 4.5 stars 70
For the ultimate gazpacho, you must peel, seed, dice, salt and drain really good, vine-ripened tomatoes. So what if you don't have time to fuss with fresh tomatoes? I've found the canned variety makes a fine substitute. Another advantage: Fresh tomatoes start to deteriorate as soon as the soup is refrigerated, but canned tomatoes are unaffected by the chill.

Vichyssoise is the finest of all cold soups — and the very best thing invented in the USA by the chef at the Algonquin (where the soup originated). This wonderful, smooth soup can be garnished with a few finely chopped chives or a little curry powder. Enjoy!
