Now pour in the white wine and continue cooking until it evaporates. At this point, add the milk and the sachet of saffron, seasoning with salt and pepper. Cook for about 40 minutes over a gentle heat. Now toast the sliced bread until crisp. Season the salad with extra virgin olive oil, salt and serve the rabbit.
