For the cheeks:

  • Make a brown stock.
  • Clean the cheeks of fat. Season with salt and pepper and sauté. Let it brown.
  • Chop up the vegetables and put them in a pressure cooker.
  • Add the meat and add the red wine. Reduce the wine to evaporate the alcohol.
  • Add the brown stock. Close the pot and cook under pressure for 50 or 60 minutes.
  • Remove the meat and set aside the vegetables and the stock to obtain the sauce.
  • Crumble the meat.

For the sauce:

  • Blend and sieve the vegetables and the broth.

For the mille-feuille:

  • Spread a layer of hot meat with sauce on top of the potato.
  • Place another layer of mashed pumpkin.
  • Spread another layer of hot meat with sauce over the mashed potatoes.
  • Finish off the mille-feuille with another layer of potato.
  • Place a greaseproof paper on top of the mille-feuille and, on top of this, a mould like the one in which we used to mount the mille-feuille.
  • Put weight on the mould to compact the mille-feuille and let it cool in a cold room.

For the garnish:

  • For the bacon foam, cook it in cream.
  • Strain and remove the bacon.
  • Thicken with xanthan and add 4 egg whites per litre siphon.
  • Add salt and pepper, strain and put in the warm siphon. Load the siphon.
  • Slice the courgette and grill the slices lightly on a greased griddle.
  • Put some strips of bacon in the oven at 120 ºC until they are crispy.

For decoration:


  • Remove the mille-feuilles from the mould and ration them.
  • Heat in a mixed oven at 150 ºC.
  • Dish up the mille-feuille.
  • Add the foam with the siphon on one of the sides of the mille-feuille.
