Cannelloni of Braised Rabbit with Glazed Vegetables & Black Pudding Purée | Matthew Tomkinson

Ingredients

For the Rabbit Cannelloni

For the Black Pudding Purée

  • 200g of Boudin Noir, preferably with Apple
  • 40ml fresh Apple Juice
  • Salt & Ground White Pepper, for seasoning

For the Ham Velouté

For the Glazed Vegetables

Method

  1. To prepare the rabbit legs, season the legs heavily with the salt and place them in a tight-fitting bowl with the herbs and garlic. Cover loosely with cling film and place a heavy weight on top. Leave for 24 hours and then remove and wash the legs well in running water.
  2. Bring the chicken stock up to a gentle simmer in a pan, and place the rabbit legs in so they are just covered. Cook for 2 hours or until tender. Allow to rest in the liquid off the heat for 1 hour and then remove.
  3. Pick all of the meat from the bones and reduce the stock until strong tasting but not salty. Reheat the rabbit meat in a few tablespoons of the stock, then add the butter and emulsify. Check the seasoning and add the chives.
  4. Place a mound of the mixture onto each of the fresh cannelloni sheets and roll up, making sure they are sealed tight. Keep warm until serving.
  5. For the black pudding, remove any skin from the black pudding and blend with the apple juice until very smooth. Season with salt and pepper and warm gently and keep to one side.
  6. For the ham velouté, sweat the onion in a little olive oil until translucent, then add the ham and the wine. Boil for 5 minutes or until almost dry and add the cream, mustard and milk. Season and pass through a fine sieve, then keep warm.
  7. For the glazed vegetables, reheat the vegetables in the rabbit stock and add the butter, sugar, seasoning and herbs. Gently stir, making sure all the vegetables are coated, and keep warm until serving.

To Serve: Place a large spoon of the black pudding purée on a warm serving plate, then top with a rabbit cannelloni. Heap some of the glazed vegetables on top, blend the ham velouté with a stick blender and spoon over. Serve immediately.
