    Peel the carrots and cut them into nice slices.  

    Peel the onions and finely chop them.

    Peel the shallots and finely chop them.

  • Piglet cheeks

    In a pot, warm a thread of olive oil.  Seer the piglet cheeks on all sides so as to give them a nice coloration.  Next, add the carrots, onions, garlic, thyme and bay leaf.  Continue to cook to give the vegetables a nice coloration as well.  Sprinkle with the flower and mix well.  Deglaze with the red wine and continue to cook until half the wine has reduced.  Then add water to cover all the elements in the pot.  Bring it back to a boil then place a cover on the pot.  Place in the oven for 45 minutes at 320°F (160°C).

    Bring to a boil and cook for 20 minutes.

    Add the sherry vinegar, stir, then continue to cook for another 15 minutes.

    Once done cooking, verify and adjust the seasoning.
