These delightful starters are the perfect introduction to a festive Christmas meal. Full of flavour, yet light enough for everyone to enjoy before the main meal ahead.


  • 250ml cold water
  • 65ml lemon juice
  • 2 pears, cored and cut into slim wedges
  • 12 slices of Parma ham (prosciutto)
  • 12 thin slices of blue cheese
  • 24 or more whole rocket leaves
  • olive oil to drizzle
  • freshly-milled black pepper


Step 1

Mix together the cold water and lemon juice and pour over the pear slices. Allow to steep a few minutes to prevent discoloration. Drain and pat dry thoroughly.

Step 2

Just before serving, lay a slice of Parma ham on a board then lay a slice of pear, blue cheese, and rocket on one end and roll up, making sure some of the filling ingredients protrude above the ham roll.

Step 3

Serve on platters, drizzle with olive oil and black pepper then serve.
