Although I have stopped eating meat, I still cook it for the family and it has made meal preparation a little more of a challenge. I realized I needed a small frying pan in which to cook their meat so I could add it to whatever else I was making later. All this to justify why I *needed* a Le Creuset frying pan! Of course, a new one was a little out of my budget so I have been looking at ebay and le bon coin. What I would have loved is a marmitout - where you have a saucepan with a frying pan that doubles as a lid. But they are rather hard to come by second hand. So in my search for a small frying pan, I came across someone selling a mix of stuff for 20€. Here's what I got: an almost brand new dutch oven, a saucepan, a fabulous old gratin dish (perfect for tartiflette) and the exact style of little frying pan that I was after. Bargain!
