Starter

Ingredients for 3 people

600g rabbit livers (cleaned)

100g butter (softened) + 20g

2 spoonfuls of extra-virgin olive oil 

2 cloves of garlic

4 spoonfuls of brandy 

2 teaspoons of dried thyme 

Fabbri amarenas, as required

Salt and pepper, as required

Juniper berries, as required

Method

Heat the oil and butter in a large non-stick pan and fry the garlic, onions and thyme together with a juniper berry.  Cook until they are soft.  Add the rabbit livers and cook them for a couple of minutes. Pour in the brandy and leave it to evaporate.  Blend the mixture with the butter and cream until it is smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste and blend for a few more minutes. Fill 8 little molds (glasses or little bowls) or a big aluminum mold lined with plastic wrap. Leave to cool in the refrigerator for at least 4 – 5 hours, or even overnight.

Dark chocolate soufflé with amarenas - Recipe by the chef Claudio Sadler

Ingredients for 8 people

2 whole eggs

3 egg yolks 

100g dark chocolate

100g butter

50g flour

100g sugar

For the sauce

250g liquid cream

40g amarena sauce  

100g Fabbri amarenas

400g cinnamon gelato 

Method

Beat the egg yolks, whole eggs and sugar together until the mixture is foamy. Then add the butter and chocolate (which you have previously melted together over a low heat). Add the sifted flour and stir the mixture together. Leave the mixture to rest in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, so that it thickens, and then add the amarenas, cut into little pieces. Put the mixture into individual aluminum soufflé dishes, with a diameter of about 6cm, which you have previously greased and dusted with sugar. Put the cream and amarena juice into a siphon and charge it with the gas required. Shake the siphon well and check that the foam is dense enough. Put it back in the refrigerator. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°C for about 10 minutes. Remove the soufflés from the oven and serve them with the amarena foam and little pieces of amarena, as well as a scoop of cinnamon gelato.
