wild boar

Wild boar is popular in the autumn and winter. Favourite ways of eating it include salame and prosciutto, and in dishes such as pappardelle al cinghiale (with a boar meat ragù) and cinghiale a bujone (sautéed with garlic, rosemary, and chillis, then slowly cooked with wine and tomatoes) is a popular dish around Viterbo and the Maremma.
