Melon Soup
4th June, 2017

The last time I had a melon soup was in a restaurant just off the Bourse in Bordeaux. The sun was baking hot and this cold starter tasted out of this world.

You don’t need baking hot weather to enjoy this melon soup (though it’s always nice) as the flavours are so refreshing.


  • 1 3/4 ripe honeydews, seeded and scooped
  • 4 oranges, juice only
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 200 mls greek yogurt
  • 1/4 honeydew, balled (for a garnish)
  • Prosciutto ham


    Cut the honeydews in half, deseed with a spoon and cut in half again.

    Run a knife along the flesh to seperate from the melon husk.

    Roughly chop 6 of the 8 melon pieces and pop into a blender

    Add the orange juice, honey and yoghurt as well and blend until smooth

    Ball the remaining melon and thinly slice the ham

    Evenly distribute the melon balls and ham in the bottom of the bowls and pour over the blitzed melon.

    Serve chilled.
