• 600g fresh porcini mushrooms
• 900g wild boar sausages or sweet Italian sausages
• 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
• 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
• 3 garlic cloves, chopped
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint or thyme
Clean the mushrooms by rubbing them with a dampened cloth, do not wash them. Trim the mushroom stems, then slice the mushrooms; set aside.
Prick the sausages with a fork. In a skillet over moderate heat, warm the olive oil. Add the sausages and fry until they start to turn brown, about 5 minutes. Remove some of the cooking fat and pour in the vinegar. Continue cooking until the vinegar evaporates, about 5 minutes.
Add the mushrooms and garlic and cook for another 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt, sprinkle with the mint and stir well.
Arrange the sausages on a platter and serve very hot.

Cut the meat into bite sized pieces. In a roasting pan over moderate heat, warm the olive oil. Add the garlic and fry gently for a few minutes. Add the wild boar and brown on all sides, about 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Add the carrot, celery, parsley, thyme and chilli. Stir well and pour in the wine. Lower the heat and cook until the wine evaporates, about 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook for 2 hours, gradually adding the stock when the pan becomes too dry.
