With Thanksgiving looming, my mouth waters with thoughts of turkey and traditional trimmings. In 17th century Normandy, Thanksgiving was not celebrated as we know it today, but Delphine Dupres enjoyed concocting new recipes for her family to enjoy. In Chapter 7 of Midwife of Normandy, Clare receives a skinned rabbit as payment for delivering a baby and she gives it to Delphine to make ragout du lapin. If you are feeling adventurous, you may wish to cook a rabbit stew instead of turkey this year. Here is a recipe I found on the internet. Just don’t use the mushrooms from the cellar at Maison Dupres!
