I Say It's Wabbit Season
By John Havel
Rarebit, Welsh rarebit, or Welsh rabbit, is traditionally a sauce
made from a mixture of cheese and butter, poured over toasted bread
which has been buttered. An English dish, it is normally made with
Cheddar cheese, in contrast to the Continental European fondue which
classically depends on Swiss cheeses and of which Welsh rabbit was
a local variant.
The first recorded use of the term Welsh rabbit was in 1725, but
the origin of the term is uncertain. It may be an ironic name coined
in the days when the Welsh were notoriously poor: only better-off
people could afford butcher's meat, and while in England rabbit was
the poor man's meat, in Wales the poor man's meat was cheese.
Creative application by various chefs has led to the term rarebit
being used for a variety of other dishes comprising cheese on
toasted bread, a notable example being buck rarebit which has a
poached egg added, either on top of or beneath the cheese sauce.
Because such variants depend only on the creativity of chefs, the
list of names is endless.
