  • 4 g lavender flowers
  • 2 ripe melons
  • A few sprigs rosemary
  • Salt, pepper, Espelette pepper

Preparation steps

  1. Peel melon, remove seeds and cut into even pieces. Use rosemary sprigs to make skewers with melon pieces.
  2. Meanwhile, warm olive oil and pour over lavender flowers. Leave to cool and infuse for at least 2 hours.
  3. When lavender oil has reached room temperature, immerse cheeses and leave for another 2 hours.
  4. Preheat barbecue to 250°C and grill the melon skewers
  5. Serve the warmed melon skewers with the marinated Picandou cheeses.

😉 Tipp: Melon is really nice barbecued – and so is watermelon, so why not give that a try too?
