Serves 4

1 sweet, ripe melon
100ml/3 1/2fl oz crème fraîche
1tbsp rose syrup
A few rose petals (if you like)
A handful of cherries (optional)

Cut the melon in half and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Cut into 8 pieces using a sharp knife. Remove the outer skin. Place the melon on a plate, with a few cherries, and spoon the crème fraîche on top. Drizzle over the rose syrup and scatter over the rose petals. Serve immediately after cutting - as the melon dries out quite quickly.
