      I love rabbit and this recipe was LOVELY! I made this rabbit stew with an already jointed rabbit, and with my own bouquet garni, I always have some made up from the herbs in my garden! This recipe is very similar to my own rabbit stew recipe, however, the addition of the caramelised onions gives this stew a real inspirational lift, and one that we BOTH loved! Chervil is NOT seasonal right now, so I could not use that - but I will next time. Thanks Baby Kato for a wonderful, rustic and very hearty rabbit recipe. Made for Photo Tag. FT:-)
