Featured Recipe: Wild Boar Ragú
At our cooking class focused on Tuscany, the hands-down favorite dish was the Wild Boar Ragú. The hearty, spicy, and meaty flavors of the ragú were perfectly mirrored in the accompanying 2008 Syrah. This pairing exemplifies the amplification of taste which results from the flavors in the food closely matching those of the wine. Try it for yourself!
