I live nowhere near Mr. Zalben's shop, but at least I can enjoy Peanut Butter & Co.’s awesome peanut butter, Cinnamon Raisin Swirl being my very favorite! I also was able to get my hands on a copy of Mr. Zalben’s book, titled The Peanut Butter & Co. Cookbook: Recipes from the World’s Nuttiest Sandwich Shop and published by Quirk Books. The author tells the story of him making his college dream come true of having a peanut butter sandwich shop, and I loved the part of the story where soon after opening he had a packed house and his main sandwich maker quit. Luckily, his wonderful mother came to the rescue and received a huge round of applause from the crowds! The recipes in The Peanut Butter & Co. Cookbook encompass all kinds of delicious ways to use peanut butter, including breakfast, dessert, savory and even his famous sandwiches (like the Fluffernutter and the Elvis). The Thai Peanut Soup and the Maple Peanut Butter Mousse also look excellent. Mr. Zalben even kindly shares his expert tips on how to make your own peanut butter. The Peanut Butter & Co. Cookbook is filled with really yummy treats, like Peanut Butter Popcorn Balls or Peanut Butter Caramel Apples. If you are a peanut butter fan, The Peanut Butter & Co. Cookbook offers lots of delicious and creative suggestions for using this tasty and nutritious food!
