Our movie night theme on Sunday was “hunting”. For some reason this got me thinking about Wild Boar, and the way that cooks used to make fake versions of food when the king demanded a beef roast when there were no cows on hand. So I made a fake wild boar.
Stella was really into the process and wanted to see the pig at each step of the way.
I was worried that once I put it in the oven the dough would rise and obliterate the basic pig shape, but thankfully it stayed put.
It’s actually a goat-cheese, mozarella, and prosciutto calzone, btw. And yes, I used food coloring in my egg wash.
