    Serves 4

    1kg (2 1/4 lb) wild boar meat, cut into chunks
    Plain flour for dusting
    100ml (3 1/2 fl oz) olive oil
    2 carrots, finely sliced
    1 large onion, finely chopped
    2 celery sticks, finely diced
    2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    4 fresh bay leaves
    1 chilli, chopped
    100ml (3 1/2 fl oz) dry white or red wine
    800g (1 lb 12 oz) ripe tomato pulp (either from skinned tomatoes or bought in cartons)
    1 sprig fresh rosemary
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Dust the meat pieces in flour, and shake off the excess. Brown on all sides in the oil in a large casserole. Add vegetables, garlic, bay leaves and chilli and cook slowly until soft, about 15 minutes. Add the wine and let it evaporate. Add the tomatoes and leave to cook slowly, covered, for a couple of hours. Add some water if necessary during this time.

    Just before the end of the cooking time, add the rosemary, salt and abundant pepper. Check for tenderness and seasoning. Serve hot with Tuscan bread or boiled potatoes.
