last night's meal

Well, nothing much to mention today, so I hope that you don't mind with a photo from last night. Unless Rev. Dr. Wu Yi prefers me to talk about the latest news regarding police speeding and possibly murdering. A speeding police car ran a red light hitting a 21-year-old woman in Parramatta last night. After all, police are known to be good at booking people slightly over the speed limit.

This is a photo showing last night's la carte menu, combining both offerings.

last night's  la carte menu

One of the option was Thai theme. (The other one was rabbit.) I don't like any hot or spicy food, hence I did not enjoy that very much.

Can you spot the tastiest item in the photo above?

If you look at the photo carefully, you should see a beautiful Nespresso coffee (in
Cashmere bone china square coupe cup and saucer on the far right corner of the table.

Well, the coffee was not part of Laurent's menu, but it was, without a doubt, the best part.

The lighting is a bit suspect Antony, if you give the finished product a quick egg wash and place in the oven briefly, the food will look glossy and more exciting to the camera.

I haven't eaten rabbit for many a decade, but as a child it was a regular dish at my house. My dad used to refer to it as "underground hogget". Hogget is an inferior type of lamb meat, similar to mutton. I can remember setting traps for rabbits in the country when I stayed with my relatives. Rabbit stew ( with apologies to Bugs Bunny) is delicious! Roasted, it's a little dry.

You ate the rabbits you caught???
Posted by Antony on 19 May 2009 12:45 AM.
YES, that's why we trapped them!! I never skinned them or cut them up or cooked them for that matter. Lagomorphs have very little body fat, and have a texture similar to chicken thigh pieces.

How can you eat the rabbit you caught?
Posted by Antony on 20 May 2009 12:32 AM.
Don't be such a dullard Antony, that is the reason they were caught...for food!!
When the head is removed and the skin around the front and back feet is cut, it is quite easy to turn the whole coat inside out, leaving the beautiful flesh clean and fur free.Cut out the innards, throw them away,wash the rabbit all over and dinner will be soon!
The remote village farmers were experts at that, and made useful items from the rabbit skins, and sold the "lucky" rabbits feet at market.

We don't see rabbits often back in the High Class Remote Village. We see them once a year in the annual Spring Festival, the world famous Rabbit and Turtle racing!
(Not the version you know. The baby rabbit would put some oil on the track so the turtle would lost the control. The baby turtle would put some carrots along the track to slow down the rabbit.)

Strangely, I really want to see this someday.

To DON: this is all a work of fiction that Antony and I, have,in our collective madness, created.
Anything to do with the remote village is of our own creation. Something akin to "Wind in the Willows" or "The Hobbits"!

P.S: little turtles are not smart enough to slick down running tracks or lay carrots along the path!!
Posted by Rev.Dr.Wu Yi on 21 May 2009 8:58 PM.
Don, thank you for your interests in Rabbit and Turtle Racing story.
What Rev. Dr. Wu Yi does not know is that the racing is the highlight of the Spring Festival. Once a winner is announced, the other team will immediately spend the next 364 days planning on how to win back the race.
The annual racing competition has been on for centuries. How do you know which team won? Easy, just check in at the local pub and see if party group are a colony of rabbits or a bale of turtles.
