RABBIT AND ROASTED PUMPKIN / 2012 ICON SERIES GRENACHE
Rabbit and bacon rolls with roasted cashew nut and pumpkin puree, game jus topped with fresh leaves.
This dish was created out of my love for rabbit, not too much bacon so you don’t over power it. Earthy tones really match Grenache, so roasting the nuts and making a puree gives the smooth mouth feel and complex flavors a hit. I used spring roll pastry to make my rolls but brik pastry would be a much better alternative (Karena’s suggestion GOLD). Tim loves traditional jus and it is a luxury to be able to pair this match up with it.
