Quick but classy: “porchetta”-style rabbit by Arturo Dori

This is a simple and elegant dish, just like Arturo Dori. Rabbit is a very lean meat that is high in vitamins and low in cholesterol. In Italy you often find it on menus and in Tuscany it is often cooked with wine, tomatoes and vegetables (alla cacciatora), with olives or simply baked. “Porchetta”-style rabbit is cooked using the same technique as Italian "porchetta" (roast pork): boneless rabbit stuffed with garlic, rosemary, sage and especially wild fennel, and then roasted.

Without further preamble, here is a quick but very classy recipe!
