Cinghiale Hunt

Last week was the opening day of cinghiale hunting for Federico's father, Massimo, in Abruzzo. I'd say they did well! When you meet Federico, ask him to tell you his cinghiale hunt stories!

Of course, our minds went straight to cinghiale ragu, cinghiale sausage, salami, etc. and then Brad mentioned something about pork belly...

We call it Hog Season in Georgia, but the urge to gather together and dress in camo is universal...

Cathy Butero:

Hemmingway wrote about Abruzzo in Farewell to Arms -- nice little connection.

I was happy to discover that Ontario's only wild boar producer is located close to where I travel a lot for meetings. Happy Jerry is picking up a shoulder roast for a big pot of ragu on Monday. :-)


Wow - that is a big boar. I'd love to have some to make a ragu!
