    Hey there Hank – recipe looks fantastic. I’ve been a long time reader, ever since your article on “Lake Erie Perch Chowder” was passed along to me from a fellow Clevelander – really appreciate the positive and honest reporting on the area and its fisheries.

    Anyway, I haven’t done much in the kitchen with rabbit, but was wondering what preparation you’d suggest if I wanted to combine your Pigeon Tortellini recipe with Rabbit? Specifically, would I pan-brown and roast the rabbit or should I braise? And what type of fat would you use with it? Main concern would be drying out the filling…

    Thanks again and keep up the fantastic work! – Ian

    I wish I’d had this recipe when I lived in Japatul Valley outside San Diego years ago. Them rabbits came out every night to steal the hay and it would’ve been nice to even things up a bit.

    Decimated the local rabbit population this summer to save wife’s garden & haven’t yet started on the ABUNDANT squirrel population both in woods & on the bird feeders, but lots of pheasant breast in freezer so used that. Brined for a couple hours first then into buttermilk marinade overnight. This recipe immediately made my top 10 ways to prepare pheasant!!! Thanks a bunch!
