There are few things more from Málaga than gazpachuelo, a humble, mild mayonnaise soup, that has evolved to be a high cuisine dish. But the reaction to "tempered mayonnaise soup" isn't always the best outside of Malaga. I have often met faces of surprise and even disgust.

This documentary wants to tell the history behind this dish, its main variations and its evolution to the high cuisine, an evolution that goes parallel to the city where it is so loved. Because, as they say, we are what we eat, or even yet, what we cook.

We will meet gazpachuelo enthusiasts, chefs, grannys, journalists and historians. Our goal is to entertain and enlighten on gastronomy and history with a sober tone, but in an amicable way for all audiences. Our goal is to make this dish well known outside of Malaga.

Gazpachuelo also wants to "feed" others. Therefore, 20% of the income will be destined to the soup kitchen Yo Soy Tú. We will make an online pre-premiere in november with a longer, exclusive and different cut that the one to be shown in cinemas, TV and/or events..

This is a project written, directed and produced 100% independently by Jorge Rivera.
