The other day I overheard Anne Burrell on Secrets of a Restaurant Chef say that she loves black pepper and pretty much adds it to everything.  Besides the many other reasons I’m convinced she and I would be BFF’s in the kitchen, that one adds a major bonus point.

I’m a freak for black pepper. I don’t think any recipe (baking aside) gets plated without black pepper. But here’s the secret. I’m super cheap. I have always just kept the dollar store pepper grinder near by. I can see the shock on your face from here. Don’t judge. But today I get to finally spice up my breakfast some fancy freshly ground black pepper and not only while I’m out to eat.

Peugeot USA sent me a beautiful black pepper grinder – and it came with peppercorns in it! Its beautiful and sleek. It grinds perfect little pepper specks all over my food and that makes me very happy. So, if you would like to win your own fancy pepper grinder and put away your dollar store version – check out the details below.



BBQ Pork Frittata for Two


  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1/2 teas shallot, minced
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup shredded pulled pork
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbs milk

  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Whisk eggs, milk, thyme, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and set aside.

Heat a 6″ oven safe skillet over medium heat until just smoking. Add butter and swirl to coat. Add shallot and cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add pulled pork and toss until headed through. Pour egg mixture into skillet and scatter shredded cheese on top.

Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until cooked through.

    I could really use the nutmeg mill. I have one of those little metal graters now, either I through away half of every nut or I scrape the end of my finger every time I use nutmeg.

    Peogeot coffee grinders have a great rep, though I don’t have one (hint, hint). I use a Zassenhaus for travel and a German war surplus coffee grinder made by Trösser for home (this was literally made to go to war, cast iron & steel construction, can easily hold a pound of beans).

  4. From their website, i really liked the Mahé u’Select – Salt Mill

  5. i’d love any of their products, but the wooden mill would look best in my kitchen. 🙂

  6. i want the elis sense stainless steel mills, they would look beautiful in my kitchen 😉

  7. Wow, that pepper grinder from Peugeot is a thing of beauty. It sure beats the heck out of my Costco grinder. I went over and liked Peugeot on Facebook. Great frittata too.

  8. The Nostalgie – Coffee Grinder is so cool – a real conversation piece. I did not know that Peugeot made wine glasses and I am totally wanting a set of their Esprit 180 Blanc.

    I could really use a salt and pepper mill in my kitchen – I don’t have either one!! I always end up using the Costco sized salt and pepper containers and it makes a huge mess because so much comes out at once.

    I could use a good salt grinder. I only have my housemates salt shaker and it has large holes the allow way to much salt to pass through. Nothing as bad as salty eggs or fries !!
    I like your page !! The recipes are really great !!

    I have been on a mission to find a good set of salt & pepper mills, seems the ones i purchase break due to too much use…good thing i follow pass the sushi on FB and the twitter machine, other wise i would not have found out about the quality products from the fine people at peugeot-usa…Like the Châteauneuf mills offered in Black or Wild Cherry made with select french beech wood and accented with brushed stainless steel. And please dont get me started on Peugeot’s exclusive u’Select grind adjustment system! Also being that i am pork enthusiast (to say the least) i will be making the above frittata…-Jon Alcoff

  28. I too love pepper. A friend that travels to Borneo shares some of the pepper he gets from there with us. It is the best I’ve ever had. Any of those pepper mills would be great. But if I had to choose just one I guess I would go with the Promo Mill.

  29. Their website seems to be locked…
