Place the garlic, mustard and olive oil in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a mixing bowl with diced sourdough and mix together.
Bake in an oven preheated to 175C until golden. In a saute pan, heat the honey, water and the second quantity of olive oil.
Add the ham and saute until the honey starts to glaze the ham. In another mixing bowl, add the peas, asparagus pieces, shallots and feta, season with sea salt and freshly milled pepper.
