Who wants to cook in this heat we're currently having in Basel? Not Sue Style, our resident food expert who came up with ideas for the best iced soups for steamy summer nights - gazpacho of course (and try adding some strawberries or watermelon to your regular recipe, gives a nice touch of sweetness when the tomatoes are a bit sharp and lacking in flavour).

We'd like to dedicate this week's English Show to Mike McNamara, who sadly passed away a few weeks ago. Mike was the singer of the band Mojo Train, who - way back in 2001 - recorded an English Show jingle - the jingle that you still hear today at the beginning of each show. In October 2013, Mike and Mojo Train came into the studio to play a couple of songs live, and we all had a blast. Thank you, Mike, and Mojo Train, for giving us so much joy!
