Being a multi-cultural family, creating fusion recipes comes easily and often for me. Recently my husband and I traveled to Tuscany for a culinary vacation. One of our hands on cooking classes was making classic Italian Bolognese sauce featuring local wild boar. The sauce was served over homemade pasta.To bring me home I knew I wanted to change this long simmered sauce to a quicker dish with the Oriental flavors I use in everyday meals.
