boar? (Not that I have really looked for a source
but it sounds intriguing). Also, how are you preparing it? >>>
Even in period the number of wild boars was diminishing and they were
gradually getting replaced by domestic pigs on feast tables.
<<< And is there anything in the Florilegium on how to do it? >>>
Are you talking about a whole pig or a pig's head? As others have
mentioned, there is the pigs-head-msg file in the Florilegium which
covers using both real and artificial pig heads.
Cooking-Piggy-art (5K) 9/27/01 A humorous adventure cooking a pig.
whole-pig-msg (66K) 4/18/05 Info. on roasting a whole pig.
Some of these places might have wild boar or an approximation:
food-sources-msg (68K) 1/31/08 Modern sources for unusual medieval
meats and other foods.
<<< I am interested in making a wild boar centerpiece for
Christmas but I haven't decided whether to do a real one,
a fake one, or a cake one. >>>
We have some mighty ambitious cooks and pastry folks on this list:
cak-soteltes-msg (60K) 3/ 7/08 Cake based sotelties. Decorated
<<< (I'm sure it would be very tasty, but once we
did the stuffed beef tenderloin in pasty and ate it by ourselves
for a week and by the end of the week we decided
we wouldn't be fixing it again any time soon--that was 11 years ago).
Lol. Yes, I wanted a ham so I bought one a couple of weeks ago and
baked it recently. My wife has shown little interest in it, so I've
still got more than half of it left. I guess some of it is going to
have to go into the freezer.

We are considering traveling up there for 12th Night. Are you going to
be attending that event?
