My grandfather was an eater of many meats - even possum — but he did not care for the texture of wild boar. His recipe for wild boar stew was simple: cook the boar with various vegetables, then “throw the meat in the garbage and keep the broth.” It is worth noting that he was not exactly the cook of the family, but the fact remains that feral pig can be quite tough if not cooked with care.

When I think about comfort food, a warm and tender, falling apart mass of roasted meat is high on the list. Chuck roasts are great, but pork shoulders have recently been starring in my dreams.

Easter may be over - but how can you make your pre-cooked ham taste better?

We tend to think of dips as white, creamy liquids with flecks of herbs or other greenery hanging out in there, but Serious Eats has a recipe for one that is unlike anything I've ever dipped a carrot in, and it contains pork, miso and walnuts.
