  • Prosciutto e Melone is a classic Italian first course dish that is traditionally served with crostini, grissini and mozzarella tomatoes.
  • The origin of Prosciutto e Melone is reportedly dated back to 2nd century A.D.
  • The first mention of Prosciutto e Melone can be traced back to the theories of an Italian doctor, Galeno.

Melon, in the medieval times, was deemed as a highly dangerous fruit for its juiciness and cold texture. Pairing it with ham, having dry and warm nature, counterbalanced it. From there onwards, the dish, Prosciutto e Melone prevailed.
