Peanut Butter & Co. Cookbook
About the Book
In 1998, a cozy Greenwich Village café named Peanut Butter & Co. was born—with a menu consisting entirely of peanut butter creations. The restaurant was an instant hit, with features on Good Morning America and Nightline, and profiles in Time, Newsweek, and the New York Times. People liked their peanut butter so much that it’s now available in gourmet shops and grocery stores around the United States.
Now proprietor and restaurateur Lee Zalben is spreading the joy of peanut butter with The Peanut Butter & Co. Cookbook. Here are more than 80 gooey recipes for everything from decadent desserts (Four-Layer Peanut Butter–Honey Cake) to delicious, nutritious snacks (Baked Apples with Peanut Butter) and sensational entrées (Peanut Butter Pad Thai). Of course, no peanut butter cookbook would be complete without sandwiches—here are recipes from the traditional (The Lunch Box Special) to the deliciously daring (Peanut Butter BLT).
With full-color photographs and tons of quirky statistics, The Peanut Butter & Co. Cookbook is sure to answer every peanut butter craving!
LEE ZALBEN, a.k.a. “The Peanut Butter Guy,” is the president and founder of Peanut Butter & Co. Having created an entire menu of peanut butter sandwiches and desserts, he is, without a doubt, peanut butter’s number one fan!
