Single-use equipment is pointless, the scourge of ordered kitchens everywhere, or so we're often told. Normally, I agree. The blini pan above was cradled home from a trip to Auckland, but it turned out that the blinis themselves weren't quite as exciting as Nigella Lawson had led me to believe.
Fortunately a blini pan has uses beside; perfect individual b'astilla's come out of mine, crisp and golden, and, I'm now happy to report, it makes the perfect single, cyclopean olive oil-fried egg. (It was Nigella, I am sure, who wittily described the blini pan fried egg as cyclopean) Served on a big bed of greenery, it makes a good post-run lunch for one.
