Last week I ate my first 'bunny'! Not a rabbit, but the South African dish which originated in Durban!It consists of hollowed out loaf of bread, filled with curry. It came into being as an easy form of take-away for labourers in the 1940s. The bread contains the curry and pieces are broken off and dipped into the stew.
My daughter and I ordered Quarter Bunnies [1/4 loaf of bread]. I had deboned mutton and she ordered chicken. I don't do hot stuff well, and we choked and cried and laughed and blew our noses and drank milk and water in an attempt to make progress!I am glad I did it! Not sure that I will try it again though!

Tomorrow's a public holiday here, so I'll see you on Wednesday!
