Salmorejo is a cold tomato and bread soup from Cordoba. While similar to gazpacho in color and style, it is far thicker with a milder taste. In Córdoba, it is served as a chilled soup with a traditional garnish of diced Serrano ham and hard-boiled eggs.

This classic soup of Córdoba could not be more authentic. The Salmorejo is made by Despensa la Nuestra in small batches that taste as close to homemade as you will ever find – because it is truly made by homemakers in rural Córdoba.

Salmorejo is made from tomatoes, dried country-style bread, extra virgin olive oil, garlic and vinegar. The tomatoes are skinned and pureed with the other ingredients to create a dish that is almost more like a dip than a soup.
Because of its sauce-like consistency, Salmorejo is often eaten by dipping bread into it.

Now you can try this authentic Cordovan dish in your own home. A delicious alternative to the more commonly found gazpacho, it is typically milder than gazpacho as it is made with a higher percentage of country bread, which counters the normal acidity of tomatoes.

This hand made Salmorejo is made by Despensa la Nuestra, a very small company in Cordoba. When the local sugar beet factory closed, a group of women founded Despensa la Nuestra to create both jobs and authentic, easy to prepare Spanish food. The women start work before dawn so that their work is complete in time to greet their children from school.

One of the reasons the company was founded is to assist working women. With the help of the women at Despensa la Nuestra, other working women will be able to continue to serve their families authentic home made Spanish dishes, without sacrificing their valuable family time.

Despensa products are carefully and thoughtfully produced to taste as close to homemade as you will find without having prepared the food yourself. They use top quality produce from their own farm and never add any coloring or preservatives.

Serve chilled and keep refrigerated after opening.

"Loved it! Very similar taste to Gazpacho Andaluz but with more consistency (the bread?)."

Celina  3 Star Rating
"quite good - but slight metallic aftertaste that makes me hesitate to order again -- it might be the taste of the olive oil, but it's not entirely pleasant and again almost tastes metallic or like some preservative"
