When I bought this spanspek (also known as cantaloupe) I knew that I wanted to eat it with prosciutto or a similar style cured ham. The only cured ham the supermarket had at the time was something called spek which I’d never tried before. That didn’t stop me from buying it though. I’m not going to lie, the alliteration in the title tickled me, but I found the flavour of the spek was too strong for the melon.
- Cubes of spanspek wrapped in spek and
- a salad with shredded cabbage, red onion, sugar snap peas and baby tomatoes.

I assimilated this pasta dish into my repertoire after reading the recipe in the Slow Food Cape Town CSA newsletter. It’s one of my favourite weekday meals to make, all you need is three ingredients and about fifteen minutes and supper is ready. Just perfect.
- Broccoli and blue cheese pasta,
- melon balls and
- cucumber, baby tomato and baby corn skewers.
Did you notice the little octopus food picks in my lunch box? Aren’t they cute? Here’s a close-up of the little smiling faces.
