I have noticed that Anne Burrell has NEVER used black pepper in her cooking show. Whether it be seasoning a steak, roasting vegetables, or making mashed potatoes the pepper is nowhere to be found. She is professionally trained, so who am I to criticize, right? Anyone know if she has a reason for the lack of beautiful ground peppercorns in her cooking or is it just personal preference?
I tune in sometimes in the hope that she might say "I never use pepper because..." but she never does and now it is a great curiosity of mine.
