Wild Boar Bolognese: Not your mum’s spaghetti sauce!

Updated: Feb 28, 2019


I’m sure everyone had a go to recipe for a tomato meat sauce over noodles that their mum used to make, either from scratch or using (shutter) jarred ragu. (I’m a sauce snob, sorry). I love to chop, sauté and simmer beautiful tomatoes, home grown herbs, onion, garlic and a bit of flesh creating the comfort food of my youth. And I will always go back to this recipe when I need the soothing arms of nostalgia to ease my weariness. But, when I’m having my usual glass half full moment, I’m going for the wild boar sauce. Oh yeah, the foods of Tuscany, enhanced by excellent wines, can bring a Joy even your mum can’t dampen. Every restaurant or trattoria has their mama‘s Bolognese con Cinghiale.
