Before Peugeot made cars, they made pepper mills. Who knew? We certainly had no idea. So it came as an odd surprise to us when, at our first dinner in paris, at a random restaurant we were given a huge Peugeot branded pepper mill with our dinner. We thought it was a cosmic joke, (being as our raison d’etre in paris was to write ads for Peugeot.) But it was no joke – before he turned to bigger things, Mr Peugeot really did used to make poivre.
