This was like a melon medley salad using Cantaloupe, Galia, honeydew and watermelon mixed with papaya and mango, chopped fresh mint and a refreshing, citrusy, tangy ginger syrup dressing drizzled on top – a mouth-watering proposition and wait until you’ve tasted it! How about nibbling on a strawberry, lime and black pepper ice lolly or having a spoonful of chilled Bloody Mary soup? Water added the creaminess of rose and lemon fondant fancies, macarons and mini chocolate eclairs and on the palate, a passion fruit Pavlova using mango, pineapple and strawberries dusted with icing sugar and a few mint leaves.
