Miriam Clegg Loves Pig’s Head

Nick Clegg’s wife Miriam Gonzalez Durantez has published a curious recipe on her food blog this week: “Pig’s Cheeks in Wine Sauce”. Miriam says the best way to make the recipe is by “roasting a whole pig’s head“. If you don’t fancy using a pig head, Mrs Clegg says buying pig cheeks from the butchers will do just fine.

“Salt the cheeks, dust them with flour and fry them in the olive oil on both sides until they get golden (a couple of minutes on each side). Take them off the pan and reserve them. Then add all the vegetables, fry them for 5 minutes over medium heat, add the checks, pour the wine and water, wait until there are bubbles in the sauce, cover with a lid, reduce the heat and let it simmer for 1 hour. Then add the vinegar and let it simmer for another 45 minutes. The result should be really tender, buttery meat with a thick sauce.”

Interesting timing…
