Chilled Melon with Pineau des Charentes
Flavors of Charente Maritime

Preparation time: A few minutes
Chilling time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: None

Difficulty: Easy
Chef's Note

Picked from June to September, melon is at its best in July and August. Picked early in the morning, it arrives at the market still covered with dew, a refreshing and thirst-quenching temptation.

It can be served as a first course (on its own or with dried ham), or as a dessert (alone or with other fruits).

  1. Cut the melon in half along its "equator." Scoop out the seeds.
  2. Add 2 tbsp. of rosé Pineau des Charentes. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving. 
  3. Serve the half melon, very cold, on a bed of crushed ice.
