I can't believe I'm posting this - it seems so trivial. But I will carry on regardless! Today, it occurred to me that I might be using pepper and salt mills incorrectly. I've always turned pepper and salt mills in one direction; clockwise. Today, for some reason I started to doubt this was correct. Images of attentive Italian waiters with tall pepper mills poised for action, came into my head. How did they turn the pepper mill? I seemed to remember that it was a backwards/forwards motion - so clockwise then anti-clockwise. This could, of course, be a false memory... but I wondered if I might have been doing it wrong all these years. How do you turn your pepper/salt mill? Is there a right and wrong way?
