A Spiced Rabbit Pie - 26th or 27th February (Collection Only)
'Pie is an expression of power. Put your trust in a pie. All will be well.'
This week, we bring you a warming Spiced Rabbit Pie. Our head chef Farokh uses touches of his Parsi heritage to create this beautiful pie. The legs and shoulders are marinated overnight in his special Parsi spice blend. The rabbit is then braised with shallots, garlic, chicken stock and a splash of Worcestershire Sauce. And for the final flourish, the suet pastry top, lying in readiness to yield to the pie's rich filling beneath, is sprinkled with a pinch of cumin, caraway and fennel seeds. Racy.
Bread and Wine has always been the restaurant where the St. JOHN repertoire has the freedom to be, in Fergus' words, "a little bit cheeky". So here it is; a cheeky, generous pie for two to share, complete with its own enamel dish. Yours to lick clean (should you feel so inclined)!
Once your pie has made it home, cook in a medium oven (180°C/350°F) for ~40 minutes, until it is piping hot throughout and the pastry is showing a deep, golden brown. Serve immediately with purple sprouting broccoli and vinaigrette. For two to share.
For each pie sold, St. JOHN will donate £2.00 to StreetSmart, which helps support homeless and vulnerable people across the UK.
