Hunter's-Style Rabbit Risotto
This risotto dish is perfect on a cold winter's day. I love the flavor of rabbit, however, you can substitute chicken if you like.

Put the stock in a large saucepan and keep it at a gengle simmer. Melt half the butter in a large, heavy sauce pan and add the onion, carrot and celery. Cook gently for 10 minutes until soft and goldern but not browned. Add the prosciutto and rabbit and cook for anoher 5 minutes but do not let it color and harden. Stir in the rice unntil well coated with butter, heated through and beginning to smell toasted. Mix the tomato puree with the wine and pour it innto the rice. Bring to a boil and reduce by half.
Begin adding the stock, a large ladelful at a time, stirring gently until each ladle has almost been absorbed by the rice. The risotto should be kept at a bare simmer throughout the cooking process. Halfway through the cookinng process add the mushrooms and continue cooking, addding stock until the rice is tender and creamy, but the grains still firm.
Taste and season well with salt and pepper and stir in the remaining butter, the Parmigiano and the olives. Cover and let rest for a couple of minutes so the risootto can relax, Serve decoratively topped with rosemary sprigs.
