This is a signature Tuscan dish and this recipe reflects its authentic roots. Wild Boar roams freely in the Tuscan hills and Italians have traditionally created dishes from what was available in their backyards. This recipe calls for wild boar meat, however you can substitute it with whatever meat you prefer, as well as serve it with other types of pasta. Traditional pastas used with this ragù are pappardelle or tagliatelle because of their texture and the way they absorb the ragù expressing the rich and hearty flavors. This is a great dish for fall/winter and for your holiday guests!

Before my husband and I fulfilled a dream of opening a restaurant, I rarely traveled north on Hawthorne Boulevard from my home in Redondo Beach — unless I was headed to the spectacular Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes for a night out, party, or wedding. (By the way, if you’ve never been to Terranea, it’s a must!) Every time I go to there I feel like I’ve been transported to the Mediterranean. Palos Verdes is simply stunning with its rolling hills and ocean views. But recently I discovered something completely new that I wasn’t aware of in this community.
