Melon carpaccio

Meadowbrook Farms in Hamilton sells the most amazing melons this time of year. They are not cantaloupes, but rather, orange flesh Honeydew melons, and when chilled they are the sweetest, most refreshing bit of summertime you will ever taste. The owner of Meadowbrook Farms, Ronnie, says that at the produce market in Boston he has to elbow out the guy who buys for the Ritz Carleton Hotel for these particular melons because the Ritz has them on their breakfast menu. Here I sliced the melons super thin, sprinkled them with fennel pollen, then garnished the plate with fennel blossom and frond. Nice combo.
