Prepare a mash with the crushed chocolate, the ground almonds, the liver and the quarter glass of water thats been reserved. Add the stew along with the meat broth and cook for 15 more minutes.

Prepare the bao bread and fill with the rabbit mix (removing bones), garnish with rocket, pomegranate and drizzle with chocolate sauce.
