From ftajjar to pizza, there was a lot to choose from when looking for innovative recipes including rabbit meat!
Apart from that, there were some traditional dishes which bring back all those childhood memories from Sunday lunch with the family.
These include the quintessential fenek stuffat and the Italian-Maltese hybrid which is rabbit spaghetti.
In a more contemporary and modern light, there was the fried battered rabbit that was served on a bed of wakame with some delicious dressing and bright red peppercorns. Presentation on point!
The episode comes to an emotional close as Johnathan attends a lunch together with his tight-knit family and friends where his father cooks a nostalgic dish of fenek moqli and homemade fried chips.
