A tasty appetizer, a great classic of Piedmontese cuisine. It is also known as "rabbit tuna" because of the way it is prepared, very similar to that of tuna in oil. The preservation of the meat - extremely digestible, low in fat and cholesterol, but rich in protein - in the form of strips, takes place after boiling it, in glass, with oil and flavourings. A dish with a delicate and aromatic flavour, enriched by the presence of garlic, spices, white onions, carrots and celery, it is particularly suitable as an appetizer.

The legend places its origins in the nineteenth century, when - in order to circumvent the Lenten fasting rule, which imposed abstinence from meat consumption - the monks of a convent in Avigliana, near Turin, studied this formula in an attempt to pass off as tuna what was instead, precisely, rabbit.
