I have included this dish because of the fascinating combination of ingredients, namely rabbit and pears. A simple rabbit stew with carrots, onions and turnips – little baby ones, nicely peeled – cooked in stock would be a nice English way to prepare this. But the addition of pears and a drop of white wine lifts it out of the ordinary and into the exotic and amusing. This recipe is so typical of real Spanish country food, but hard to find in restaurants.
