Chicken stock

Elaboration: Chicken stock

A chicken stock is one of these staples to keep always on hand in the kitchen. It is used as a basis in an endless list of different elaborations such as soups, creams, stews, sauces, rices... you name them. Make your recipes stand out and prepare your own chicken stock at home. It is a snap and the taste just plays in a different league than the stock cubes or prepared stock that you can get from the supermarket. All you need is some chicken bones and carcasses, a few vegetables and to leave it simmering for a couple of hours. It is a good idea to make stock in big quantities that you can store in the freezer, ready to be used when required.

Gazpacho

Andalusian style Gazpacho

There are few things as refreshing in summer as an ice-cream, but definitely one of them is a good bowl of chilled Gazpacho, a cold soup typical from the south of Spain that helps coping with the sometimes unbearable Spanish summer heat.
