We had the most delicious rabbit stifado when we were staying at the Petrino Studios on the island of Naxos. Not only is this place magical to stay at, but the food is out of this world delicious! A true farm to table experience, everything is grown right there on their land, and the wine they serve is from their own vineyards that surround the property. We highly recommend a stay there, whether you are travelling alone or with your family. We were so impressed by this dish that we wrote the family that owns Petrino and asked if they would kindly give us the recipe. In true greek fashion, they were happy to oblige. To this day, it is my husband's favorite meal.
