IT may not be as famous as gazpacho, but Cordoba’s celebrated Salmorejo soup, is getting recognition by the day.

It comes after travel bible The Lonely Planet dubbed it one of the world’s top ‘must try’ bowl dishes.

Concocted with tomatoes, bread, oil and garlic, the soup is served cold and sometimes topped with serrano ham and diced hard-boiled eggs.

Not to be confused with its cousin gazpacho, salmorejo is pinkish-orange in colour and much thicker and creamier in texture, due to the inclusion of bread.
