I've been forgetting to take pictures of the dishes that we've made, but I did have a couple from a few weeks ago that I haven't put on.
The first dish we made was braised rabbit. Yes, you read that right. Rabbit! We had to butcher them down, and you really could tell they were rabbits. A little creepy, but I guess it's really no different than butchering down a chicken. That's what I told myself.
So, we used the legs for the braise with mushrooms, tomatoes and stock. It was ok - as I've said before, I wouldn't order it in a restaurant. We served it on top of polenta.
Along with the rabbit, we also made "brain cake". Ha! Not really - it's called Charlotte Royale - made with jelly roll and bavarian cream. It's done in a bowl, so it's kind of a fun presentation, but it does look like brain cake. What do you think?
Some non-class pictures coming soon.
