I love pig cheeks! They are one of the most under-rated cuts of a pig. (4 pig cheeks for £0.92- enough to feed two!) Most chefs like slow cooking them by braising (and charge over £15 for them!) but the meat always turns out to be too tough and dry for my liking. It is best to roast pig cheeks! Personally, I think they are even more tasty than the classic Chinese barbecued pork as they more succulent and juicy. Braising is just so wrong!
