NEW GAME PLAN
Eschewing farmed meat earns you more than eco bragging rights at dinner parties. Game is healthier, too, explains Andy Waugh of Mac & Wild restaurants
Indoor-reared pigs are sedentary, which can make sausages made from their meat fatty and bland. You deserve better. “Wild boar is like a cross between beef and pork,” says Waugh. But ensure you get the real thing: “Despite its name, not all wild boar is actually wild, so ask.”
What’s in it for me?
As well as a stronger, nuttier flavour, boar has a more varied nutrient profile as a result of its diet of foraged foods.
