This entree is dramatic - especially with the bright carrot puree. Don't be intimidated by rabbit. It's actually quite similar to chicken in how you cook it. In this recipe, we braise the legs and sear the loins inside prosciutto. For rabbit, be aggressive with your seasoning - especially with braising. This is one of the main differences between restaurant cooking and home the home, most people are afraid to season effectively.

He says if he were a food he would be an artichoke. "It's tough, difficult to work with, even dangerous at its core; but when you come down to it, it's simple, beautiful and delicious."
