Exciting new ways to enjoy America's favorite comfort food
Americans consume nearly 800 million pounds of peanut butter each year. With new medical findings showing that this delicious and economical powerhouse is actually nutritious--and can even help reduce cholesterol--peanut butter aficionados are eager to find sophisticated new recipes that make use of this sumptuous spread.
Peanut Butter Planet introduces dozens of vibrant dishes from the world's cuisines--from the spicy peanut sauces of Southeast Asia to the hearty stews of West Africa. Unique creations such as Spicy Peanut Burgers, Linguine with Peanut Butter Pesto, and a decadent Peanut Butter Tiramisu are among the innovative recipes that veteran cookbook author and chef Robin Robertson provides. Sandwich-lovers will find not only the PB&J lunchbox classic of their childhood, but variations ranging from Elvis's banana-studded favorite to a fabulous peanut butter wrap made with shredded carrots, celery, apple, and raisins.
Peanut Butter Planet is for everyone who fell in love with peanut butter when they were kids--and love it
to this day.
