I bookmarked this recipe straightaway when I saw the picture at Foodess. The pile of gnocchi has nice really nice golden hue to it, how can anyone resist that greasy shine on food?! The sauce is really simple yet full of wonderful flavours. The brown butter has this nice nutty flavour, which adds a really nice touch to just regular fatty buttery taste. I added a splash of lemon juice to freshen up the dish, and also to cut through the fattiness of the butter (the wild boar is very sensitive to the strong taste of butter). I also added some leftover meat as the wild boar needs his meat. All in all, it turned out amazingly tasty with just simple ingredients.
