The art of cooking wild boar is difficult to find in the average cookbook. Cooking game is rumoured to be difficult. Good recipes are rare. However, cooking wild boar is easy and extremely rewarding. Wild boar is the game of kings and noblemen! No medieval feast was complete without wild boar on the table.
The following is a sample recipe specifically for wild boar meat cooking. Wild boar is very tender when done properly, and at the same time, much leaner and healthier than pork. The traditional way to cook wild boar is almost well done, but we prefer it medium or medium rare. Rose hip jam or cranberries will go well with the wild boar. For wine, a dry red wine is a good choice. Cabernet sauvignon my favourite!
We hope you will enjoy this recipe! Joyful cooking!
|1 wild boar roast||celery|
|1 bottle of red wine||salt, oil|
|1 c water||1/2 c cream|
|3 cloves||1/4 c flour|
