Authentic Italian Cooking
Rabbit meat is very delicate and tasty. It is suitable to do many delicious recipes, simple or more elaborate, which may be included in your daily menu or full menus for your special occasions. In this regard, be careful: rabbit has only a defect that is bone number that does not allow easy use of fork and knife. So for your important occasions I suggest to prepare it boned or cook thighs alone.
