    Greetings -
    I've been away far too long... I request help to locate a truly 'impressive' rabbit ballotine recipe as part of a six course celebration (graduation) dinner in September. I intend to serve it with a New World Pinot Noir or a French Burgundy (haven't selected yet - depends on recipe). I have located terrine recipes, but not ballotine. Any and all suggestions would be deeply appreciated - my dinner guests deserve the best!

    Have you checked Ranhoffer's Epicurean? Page 662. Not called a ballotine, but it is. If you don't have access to the book, let me know and I'll type it out.

    Hi Jim -
    Managed to get hold of a copy of Ranhofer's Epicurean. Impressive book. Went to page 662, but not certain the rabbit recipe listed there is the one you meant? At your liesure, would you pass the recipe number to confirm? Thanks.
