What a delicious story, Myriam!

That said, I must confess that my tastes have changed ever so slightly regarding certain meats since acquiring a pet rabbit - so I found your menu slightly hare-raising!! ;)

Best wishes,

Robin :)

Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

What a wonderful story and thanks for sharing our such an amazing experience with us! :)

Catherine White

Your story is riveting Myriam -- but like Robin, my tastes have changed over the years. I now don't eat meat.

However, I will tell you my first husband took me out with his father on a number of rabbit hunting expeditions.

It literally was a hare raising experience, as the rabbits were skinned when they were captured.

I became a vegetarian, not because I'm demonstrating for land rights for gay whales, but for health reasons.

Needless to say, after reading your blog, my mouth is watering ...what time is it? 3.00 pm ...is that too early to crack open a bottle of vino? :-)



Lorraine > Thank you my dear, wish you could have been with us in Champagne ;-)


Robin > ah ah, you're hilarious!! We also have that rule in France to stay away from pet animals, but I guess we don't have that many domestic rabbits around, so we don't mind eating them ;-)


Catherine > Thank you my dear for your lovely comments, coming from you that's an honour... I know, I can't stand hunting, a bit too gore from me.

I have to say, I'm not a meat person myself. Just like you, it's not for moral reasons but rather because of personal taste preferences. I eat meat maybe 2 or 3 times a week, max (part when I'm in France of course, then I go crazy on charcuterie!).

Anyway, might grab myself a nice glass of red now that's it's 4pm, I thought yours was a rather good idea ;-)


Don't you mean hare-larious! ;)


you're just splitting hares, Rob ;-)

Epernay france

I have been to Epernay and is a very pretty town. It is having perfectly maintained vineyards into the valleys. There are about 15,000 growers out of which 4,100 produce their own champagne to taste different champagne we occasionally stopped off in the vicinity.
