Had my first taste of wild boar the other night. It tasted like . . . no, not chicken, but something in between a veal chop and a pork chop. The civilized setting was Pattaya Grill, a new Thai-French restaurant on Chestnut Street near 40th, occupying the spot where Sweet Basil used to be. Pattaya is named for a beach resort in Thailand and has a sister restaurant directly across the street: Owner Manoch Pornmukda also operates the Thai Singha House...

For Valentine's Day, how about something wild? You could rent the 1986 movie by that name and watch drab Wall Streeter Jeff Daniels get scared stiff by a kinky, handcuff-toting Melanie Griffith. Or you could opt for something tamer, like a dinner of wild boar, New Zealand venison, Canadian elk or black bear. Games or game - your choice. Since this column is not into handcuffs, you're going to read about dinner. Many area restaurants add an exotic special or two to their menus during the winter months, when game is traditionally in season, even though the products are likely to be farm-bred and available year-round.

Maybe it is the holidays, but Totaro's Restaurant, an old landmark here, recalls Martini's in that movie classic It's a Wonderful Life. In this era of fashionable renovation, the building is almost shockingly dated. It stands unobtrusively along a side street, amid rows of narrow frame houses. A small wooden sign reads Totaro's Tavern - a remnant of when Vincent Totaro Sr. ran the place. Now it is in the hands of his son Andrew, who also is a wrestling coach in the Plymouth Whitemarsh School District.

Coleen Williams' husband, Tom, doesn't miss his mom's meat loaf. "He always thought it tasted too mushy," Williams says. Not so his wife's - especially not since inspiration descended upon her during the Blizzard of '96. Williams, a self-described "adventurous cook," had braved the elements and trekked to the Italian Market from her home in Queen Village. "I was across the street from Sonny's," she recalls, "and the thought occurred to me, 'Why not make a meat loaf using game?

Wacky Florida DJ defends on-air slaughter A Florida radio announcer known as "Bubba the Love Sponge" testified yesterday that he wasn't trying to be cruel last year when a wild boar was castrated and killed on his program. Bubba, whose real name is Todd Clem, is on trial in Tampa over the killing of the boar during a broadcast last February. As the boar, named Andy, was being killed in the station's parking lot during a "road-kill barbecue" promotion, Clem, 35, played recorded sounds of a pig squealing over the air. Clem, who said his show "is controversial," is on trial with his producer.

They're b-a-a-a-a-ck. Sausages, that is. Long held in semi-contempt - except in South Philly, where Italians never gave in to food fad pressure or the unending demands of nutrition Nazis - ground meats stuffed in casing have become the darling of diet dilettantes. They were even a hit this week in Kansas City, where the annual meeting of the American Dietetic Association was held. "I couldn't believe it. All these dietitians standing in line for sausage sandwiches," says Philadelphia-based ADA spokeswoman Althea Zanecosky.

Amid the lush fields, stone houses, small diners and aromas of the countryside along West Baltimore Pike in Chester County lies a restaurant that plays an exotic game - and serves it. Hardyhoo's, in Penn Township, is the fulfilled dream of Joan Tribulas, 52. She describes herself as flamboyant, and today she is dressed for the part, attired in purple-and-gold cotton lounge outfit, gold-and-rhinestone earrings and shiny gold sandals. If she is flamboyant, her menu is more so - from A (alligator)

The latest allegations of Hollywood sexism center on the fashionable assertion that some of the industry's leading men are too old to be credibly paired on screen with young women. Examples include Harrison Ford, 57, starring opposite Anne Heche, 28, in "Six Days, Seven Nights. " Let's think about this. If Harrison Ford walked into virtually any singles bar in America, how long would it take him to leave with a 28-year-old woman? Twenty minutes? Ten? Five?

A side of Tuscan beef is no match for an Italian chef with a cleaver. But as young Marc Vetri watched a master dismantle a Chianina steer into steaks in his Bergamo kitchen, then grill them over an oak fire for lunch, he was simply awestruck. "Always be able to do everything with your hands," Graziato Pinato told Vetri, then in the final months of his yearlong training at Taverna Colleoni dell'Angelo. Recounted in Vetri's new cookbook, Il Viaggio di Vetri (Ten Speed Press)

GASPÉ PENINSULA, New Brunswick - I am coaxing my 1999 Toyota along a road in a pelting rainstorm. Logging trucks career by, coating the windshield with water. A construction detour off Canadian Route 2N has us in country that would be idyllic if we could see it. My 12-year-old daughter Anne's iPod is on the fritz; my 15-year-old son, Noah, announces that our printed-out directions have west and east reversed. My lower back screams, "Stop and stretch"; my better judgment whispers, "What were you thinking, taking the kids solo on a 2,500-mile round trip to the Gaspé Peninsula?"

HUNTING WILD boar in the Florida swamps in daylight with rifles on a fat-tire machine - now, that's fun. Nate Allen prefers it when the sun goes down and the hounds come out. "We go out there in the marshland in a swamp buggy, from 1 o'clock in the afternoon. You can shoot guns in the daytime. At nighttime, the guns go away. You go get 'em by hand. "That's when it gets intense. " With caramel skin and a porcelain smile and light brown eyes, Allen might look like a soap opera star, but he's a fan of "Duck Dynasty.

HARRISBURG - It wasn't exactly pork-barrel legislation. But at a time when lawmakers are wrestling over whether to privatize state liquor stores after 80 years of discussion, a bill to change the definition of wild animals in Pennsylvania zipped through the Senate in 21/2 weeks - like, some might say, a greased pig. The bill, sponsored by Senate President Joe Scarnati (R., Jefferson), would establish that captive feral swine - those used in hunting preserves - are not wild animals and therefore do not fall under the auspices of the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

Paris has the boulevards. Rome has the fountains. But here, well, they've got the pigs. Lots of pigs. Big ones. Wild ones. They don't call them pigs, of course. Here, they're called Wildschwein, which translates to wild pigs, or wild boars. And they're all over the news. Look in Der Tagesspiegel and there's a picture of a sow suckling five piglets. She's resting against the passenger side wheel of a sedan, which is parked in front of an apartment building. A few days ago, in southwestern Berlin, a man encountered a boar hiding, of all places, under his dining room table.

Goodbye, gazpacho. So long, softshells. Farewell, fruit salsas. It's time to make way for butternut squash bisque, briny oysters, ragouts of wild mushrooms, bubbling cassoulets, and roasted root vegetables. Restaurant chefs who spent the summer chilling soups, grilling fish and dreaming up 101 ways to use Silver Queen corn are now phasing in the dishes we instinctively crave when the weather turns cool: Chowders laced with bacon, slow-braised lamb shanks and wine-scented stews, creamy risottos and sturdy apple desserts.
