Rabbit is an outrageously underrated meat - I suppose some people can only think of nice fluffy bunnies as pets and not for eating. The meat is perfect for novices of game as it has a slight gamey flavour yet has similar characteristics to chicken in terms of flavour and texture. There is an abundance of rabbit in the UK and we're right in season at the moment so your local butcher will be able to get wild rabbit if you pre-order - a wild rabbit should cost no more than £3.50 each.
I created an account just to thank you for such detailed recipe. I have struggled to find one including rabbit which works - 31 Aug 2016
Can't wait to try this! I had rabbit years ago when visiting France and I loved it ... like you say very under rated! I have never tried cooking it myself though, so I am going to have a go at making your pie. I went to my local butchers this week and 500g of Rabbit was only 2 pounds : ) - 02 Oct 2014
