This week, we've brought one of Italy's most classic and sumptuous flavours this very special, limited edition lasagne. In it, we layer our wonderful, slow-cooked wild boar ragù between artisan lasagne sheets and magnificently creamy besciamella.
Although a sighting of one in the 21st century England is rare, it is likely that wild boar have been numerous since the Early Pleistocene time, roughly 5,000 years ago, and are native to Eurasia, among other regions. Eating wild boar dates back to Ancient Rome, where hunting and preparing this animal became a rite of passage for young males. Wild boar are quite adaptable and are well populated, meaning that they are classified as the least concern for extinction. Not only is wild boar a sustainable option, it is also leaner & healthier than pork.
