Serve two cheeks per person, pour over the sauce and finish with the green beans. Add two fresh chestnuts per person and sprinkle with fleur de sel.

Chef's Remark:
"The black Canary pig is now being bred once again. Its meat is of top gastronomic quality and is especially appropriate for cooking in stews, especially with legumes. In this dish the chestnut honey, possibly the bitterest of honeys and certainly a strong-flavored one, makes the ideal partner." Preparation by: Pedro Rodríguez Dios
