The August Taste of the Inns was great fun and a big success for the first year! As promised I’ll include the recipes we used. The first is perfect for this time of year, we went to the Farmer’s Market and bought all fresh produce and the Garden Fresh Gazpacho was delicious. It has a touch of spice and a nice crunch to it. It tastes like summer. Give it a try!
