On a whim, I bought a wild rabbit from my local butcher.

Any good recipes I should try?

Rabbit stew is good, the longer you cook it the better! Try it with red wine, too.

Yup, I know! Any specific recipes though?

I remember having great rabbit when in Malta where it's the national dish.

I don't think I followed a particular recipe, but this River Cottage one looks good

Interesting. His one uses cider. I've been having a look around and some people use pale ale but most use red wine.

I can see how it would work, it would give it a nice earthy flavour, I think & be strong enough to deal with the strong flavour of wild rabbit.

Report back on what you try, I have an urge to do rabbit stew again myself after this!

Trying to remember how I cooked mine. I didnt like the taste, I do remember that, and havent had it since! Hope you enjoy yours though.

Fry finely chopped shallots, add rabbit and fry until golden. Add a glass or 2 of white wine like Sauvignon, a bay leaf and a couple of cloves of garlic. Cook for a couple of hours at about gas 2 or 3, say 120 or 130C in a fan oven, aga simmering oven.

Then wait for me to fly to the uk to help you eat it. I love rabbit, and no-one else does apart from the cat.
