Dishes with rabbit is a super hit of Maltese cuisine. In restaurants of Malta you can try tender rabbit meat stewed in white wine with capers and herbs, rabbit stew with cream sauce, and even roasted slices of fennec (fennec is Maltese name of rabbit) with goat cheese.
But not only Maltese cooks know how to cook dishes with rabbit. French recipe of rabbit roasted with prunes, apples and bacon is popular in many countries. In Austria, people cook a unique creamy soup with rabbit, and Italian chefs invented the recipe of rabbit with Parma ham, salami and fennel.
Abd to cook a rabbit with a rabbit itself? There is nothing impossible for culinary masters! For our project, Sergey Khymych, chef of Garden restaurant chose the recipe of rabbit with salad, goat cheese and berries. This specialty created with Konstantin Ivlev, in Sergey’s opinion, is a light, elegant and very feminine dish, but suitable for men as well.
I was charmed by subtle snowy beauty of this dish. Yes, I mean snowy! Although I do not really like snow. Rather not. I do love snow in the mountains, where you can get on a snowboard and yelling Yuu-hoo ride to the foot of mountain.
But not in the city. In a hour, snow becomes dirty and gray. Traffick is stuck. I can especially feel it when I walk or drive to the shooting. Nasty and slushy.
If to make an analogy with food, there are dishes similar to snow in a city. Nasty and vile. I do not like those. And there are cold, but beautiful. As snow in Scandinavia. They have a slight hint of moss and permafrost. This dish is one of them. Cold, but beautiful. A great recipe for a sad mood.
