Technique 1

How To Choose The Plate For A Large Cantaloupe

      1. Wash very well melon and dry with a paper towel. Another important factor is how to choose the plate. For a small cantaloupe, easy to find the plate to serve. However, for a large platter not always easy to find. I have a lot of different large plates in my house but for this melon on the photos, I didn’t find a large enough plate. So, before to buy melon check the size of your plates for an important event.
