You Rockmelon !

Rockmelon Prosciutto and Rocket Salad | At Down Under | Viviane Perenyi

The sweet fragrance was promising.
After the first slice, we knew that it was a good pick.
Juicy and flavoursome rockmelon.
We ate half of it sliced and wrapped in Parma ham. A classic I like to indulge in when it’s summer.

Here’s a salad version completed with tasty rocket leaves and a balsamic vinaigrette. Pine nuts could be a good addition as well I think. For next time…

Since that very first rockmelon of the season, I’ve been slightly obsessed with it and made delicious and thirst-quenching smoothies.
And I’m thinking granita too. As soon as the sun will make its appearance again…

As a side note, the very first issue of Common Magazine is out. Common is a New Zealand periodical about art, literature, design and food, in which I’ve contributed with a couple of summer recipes. If you wish, you can support this publication and order it online.

Rockmelon, Parma Ham and Rocket Salad (For 2)

125g rocket leaves
Half rockmelon
6 to 8 parma ham slices
Handful pine nuts (optional)

Remove the seeds from the rockmelon. Scoop flesh with a melon baller or alternatively slice melon, cut out skin and dice the flesh.
Prepare the dressing by mixing all the ingredients to get an emulsion. Adjust seasoning to your liking. Pour over the rockmelon, rocket and parma slices. Serve with fresh crunchy bread.

The count down to Christmas has officially started. And here, we have kicked off the festive season with a beautiful Summer day -the very first one.
Back in october, you may remember I made allusion to projects I was eager to share with you. Today, I’m happy to tell them to you.

I’ve contributed to New Zealand magazine Taste. Currently on sale, the latest issue includes a Christmas table I’ve styled and photographed. For local readers, hope you’ll enjoy what you see and read !

And I’ve also been working for months on the making of an online portfolio, now launched. Please have a look.
