Rabbit stew

This nightmare of a dish is from Bourgogne! I did not enjoy cooking rabbit whatsoever because I quickly became emotionally attached to Thumper as I was cooking him.

What are those little toothpick kabobs stuck in the tourné potatoes? Those are Thumper’s kidneys, gently fried in garlic-thyme butter.

This plate is comprised of turned potatoes, turned mushrooms, glazed onions, rabbit jus and half a rabbit.

Apparently Thumper was delicious.
