CULINARY CORNER with Chef Caputo

What is Welsh Rarebit? I had never heard of this infamous dish until my first day of work as a stagiere (apprentice) on my externship from the Culinary Institute of America, at the Creek Club on Long Island. Welsh Rarebit, I figured, definitely consisted of rabbit. Really. I cannot say I was disheartened when I found out it did not contain rabbit because at the time my culinary palate didn’t have me eating Oscar, who was my pet rabbit as a kid! Now many years later I subscribe to Craig Claiborne’s version that a Welshman came home without any rabbit from his hunt and his wife named her new rabbit-less creation “Welsh Rabbit”. Years later, just as the recipe varies, we have come to know this as Welsh Rarebit, a staple at Mory’s. There are existing recipes from the mid 1700’s where Rarebit is little more than toast with melted cheese. Most recipes involve toast points and some type of cheddar cheese sauce made with ale. There are milk versions too. Some thicken with roux (butter and flour) while some do not. Most add mustard powder and Worcestershire sauce and pepper. My beloved chef’s bible since culinary school for all classical preparations is Escoffier’s “Le Guide Culinaire”. Escoffier recommends melted Gloucester or Cheshire cheese over toast with cayenne pepper or a sauce of cheese, ale and mustard. Though a bit different from other recipes, all Welsh Rarebit dishes seem to center around melted cheese and bread. And don’t forget the favorite beverage to be consumed with Rarebit: Beer. It seems there are as many recipes for Welsh Rarebit as there are tale’s about its humble origins. I expect one day soon in this modern world where “all things food” have given rise to television networks, too many cookbooks, numerous bloggers and “food experts” at every turn, that someone will write the definitive version of “Welsh Rarebit: The Untold Story”. Until then, enjoy. Bon Apetit.
