Instructions

Step 1: Rabbit

Remove the rabbits’ heads and giblets.

Remove the rabbit legs by cutting just after the saddle. Separate them by removing the end of the backbone that holds them in place. Cut off the first part by cutting at the joint, and remove all of the bones.

Put the parts back together again by wrapping them in thinly sliced dried pork belly. Truss twice so that they keep their shape while cooking: they are to be cooked whole and sliced into 1/2 inch (1 cm) thick tournedos when serving.

Place on a stainless steel tray, cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a cool place.

Cut the saddles just before the first ribs, and set aside for a different recipe.

Cut the rabbit racks after the fifth rib, and separate by cutting each side of the backbone with a pair of scissors. Remove the membrane, expose the bone, and cut away the nerves, paying careful attention not to remove any meat. Set the legs aside.

Separate the rest of the forequarters by cutting each side of the backbone with a pair of scissors. Remove the first part of the shoulders by cutting at the joint, and cut away the small cartilage at each shoulder end. Leave the shoulders attached to the rest of the forequarters.
