Game dishes in the Black Forest go together like sausage and mash. In this case wild boar sausage with mash potato, plus bacon, gravy, a hill of red cabbage and, possibly to foster the illusion there’s a healthy element to all this, grapes, pear and cranberries. It’s a Black Forest classic and especially warming when eaten during one of the cooler months of the year.
Kleiner Meyerhof (Rathausgasse 27; open 9,30am to 11pm daily) is a traditional Baden tavern in old Freiburg which specialises in game and lake fish. At various times of the year goose, deer, boar, trout and carp make seasonal appearances on the menu. The staff aren’t always the jolliest lot on the restaurant scene, but when it comes to having an opportunity to tuck into boar sausages I can overlook the fact they might be served by a surly fräulein.
