Boar Meat

Boar meat is one of those meats that home cooks tend to shy away from, but don’t you do that! It is a wonderful meat to cook with, full of flavor, nutritionally sound, and low in fat. Most boar meat available at your butcher is from a young animal with a mellow game flavor, but still possessing enough of the complexity of the flavor that one expects from game meat. When I braise boar meat to dress pasta or gnocchi, I use Barolo wine which adds fruitiness and complexity, but any good full-bodied red wine will do. Remember that the end product is the sum of all its parts. The better the wine you use the better the sauce will be.
