White gazpacho

This is a longtime favorite soup recipe. I used to make this for summer parties when I was a private chef and it was always a big hit. Grapes, plenty of vinegar and crunchy toasted almond garnish give the soup texture and depth. The walnut oil garnish is a must for the perfect finish.
