A tasty starter and a great classic in Piemontese cuisine. It’s also known as ‘rabbit tuna,’ because it's prepared in a very similar way to tuna in oil. The meat, which is very easy to digest, is low-fat with a low cholesterol level, but rich in proteins, and is diced, boiled, and then marinated in a glass jar with oil and herbs. This seasoned and delicate dish, enhanced with garlic, spices, white onions, carrots and celery, is particularly good to serve as a starter.

According to legend, it was invented in the 19th century: at the time, there was a rule imposing fasting during Lent and meat was forbidden. To get around this rule, the monks of a monastery in Avigliana, near Turin, devised this recipe so that rabbit meat could be mistaken for tuna.

GLASS CONTAINERS

Most of our products are packaged in convenient glass jars. Why? Because manufacturing and packaging products in glass jars allows to keep them healthy and authentic, avoiding the use of preservatives. In Piedmont, but also in the Italian tradition in general, this technique is widespread, specifically due to food safety reasons and to ensure that the products remain fresh. Glass is an inert material, which means that there is low risk of harmful chemicals getting into the food and it’s a natural protective barrier that ensures that its contents are well preserved. Not to mention that, from an environmental viewpoint, it's 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly.

BECOME A CHEF

Take the glass jar from the fridge and leave it to rest for 15 minutes at room temperature. Then open the jar and drain the oil, but keep some to pour on the rabbit for flavour. After draining the rabbit, put in the centre of a serving dish using a round mould. Top it with some fresh salad (about 10 g per portion), 4 g of sprouted seeds, and a teaspoon of toasted sesame seeds (1-2 g); dress only with 0.5 g of salt and a spoonful of extra virgin olive oil (about 6 g). When you're satisfied and your dish looks appetising enough, drizzle over a bit of the remaining oil from the jar, and then serve.
