In which our plucky young hero learns something old every day.

Today, Cook Like A Chef was all about small game.

It began with a skinned rabbit laid out on a cutting board, parsley rubbed over its skin, and today's chef gave a quick course in how to debone it. "Save these entrails" was one of the important lessons. "You can use them later."

Save these entrails.

This was news to me.

I'm part of a society that has the luxury of forgetting about the culinary uses of rabbit entrails. This is no longer part of our need-to-know, need-to-live daily curriculum. Terry Pratchett once remarked, in essence, that most great cuisine came about when peasants had to choose between eating the parts of the animal nobody else would touch and starving. I'm sure rabbit kidney was part of that creative process. Like it or die, it's up to you.
