Some gazpachos say add canned tomato juice. Salty. A lot seem to take an hour or two but it can be a simpler faster soup than all that. This Food Network recipe has some adaptable ideas. My version: puree: 4 tomatoes, seeded 1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded 1 hot pepper, seeded mix and soak: 1 […]

The >St-Viateur had more of a tear-off tougher texture. Both were excellent. Green onion cream cheese on the Fairmont might be a winner by a nose. Marou […]

Green pepper, celery, black kale, brown mushrooms, cubed herb firm tofu (marinated in white wine vinegar, olive oil and sea salt) all thrown on the grill and drizzled with ginger citrus dressing […]
