Gazpacho is a cold soup in Spanish cuisine specifically from the Andalusia region. The word gazpacho is said to be driven from the Arabic word for “soaked bread.” Still, if you do some research there conflicting stories on how the word gazpacho came to be, although the old dish is mentioned in Greek and Roman literature.

Belgium is more than just frites, kip (that’s chicken), and Bier, but it’s one of the easiest ways to introduce even the most finicky eaters to Belgian flavors. Sadly, when I attempted to make waffles the Belgian way, my waffle maker decided it didn’t need to cooperate and I ended up angrily making pancakes. *sigh*
