My Cole & Mason large Barkway acacia serving board is something that always makes an appearance when I have guests over! It’s a beautiful way to present food and makes for a great centrepiece. This recipe is one I serve as a starter, it’s super simple, refreshing and largely versatile. 

Prep: 10 minutes  

Difficulty: Easy 

Serves : 4 as a starter


  • 120g Wild rocket
  • 6 slices prosciutto, torn into bite sized pieces
  • 1 Mozzarella ball, torn into bite sized pieces

  • Large handful fresh basil, leaves picked, larger leaves torn
