      What a SUPERB rabbit recipe! I cook rabbit quite often, it is very popular in France, and I always use mustard, but the addition of the Stilton was a bold and excellent move - and IT WORKED! Tangy, creamy, cheesy and mustardy rabbit - delicious! We ate this with steamed greens and new potatoes - VERY much enjoyed by both of us - thanks for posting this recipe - it will be made MANY times again! FT:-)
