In 1998, a cozy Greenwich Village sandwich shop named Peanut Butter & Co. was born—with a menu consisting entirely of peanut butter creations. The restaurant was an instant hit and launched its own brand of gourmet peanut butter available nationwide.
Now president and founder Lee Zalben continues to spread the joy of peanut butter with The Peanut Butter & Co. Cookbook. Here are more than eighty gooey recipes for everything from decadent desserts (Chocolate–Peanut Butter Pie) to delicious, nutritious snacks (Frozen Dark Chocolate–Banana Bites) and sensational entrées (Sweet and Spicy Peanut Butter–Glazed Chicken Tenders). No peanut butter cookbook would be complete without sandwiches—here are recipes from the traditional (The Lunch Box Special) to the deliciously daring (Cookie Dough Surprise).
With tempting full-color photographs, archival photos of PB&J ephemera, and tons of quirky facts, The Peanut Butter & Co. Cookbook is sure to answer every peanut butter craving!
