Curiosities and Anecdotes

Literally Rabbit Tuna, it is a typical Piedmontese dish, originally from Monferrato and Alta Val Tanaro, both areas that claim their authorship.
The history of this dish is very curious: according to legend, its name was invented by the friars of a convent in Avigliana, in the Turin area. It is said that the friars created a stratagem to circumvent the ban on eating meat in the period of Lent. The religious dipped their rabbits in oil (as is done with tuna) and passed them off as tuna, so that they could eat them without seeming to sin!
If you do not listen to the legend, you may think that the name, more likely, is due to the preparation and final consistency of this dish, reminiscent of that of tuna.
Whatever the true story of this recipe we recommend you try it, it’s really delicious!
