    Central Market is a great place to go for lunch! You can walk in and get a salad or a sandwich made, etc. I recommend the "Club 491" or "California Connection", amazing!

    They can teach you wild boar preparation here. I must say, their methods differ from mine. In my experience the best way to prepare for a wild boar is plenty of cardio.

    Never buy spices by the jar again! So much cheaper buying from the bulk section. Saves soooooo much money! You also get more spices and they won't go bad before you get a chance to use them.
