What do you do when you can’t find peanut butter that’s just the way you like it? In Mark Overbay’s case, the answer was to make it himself, just the way he remembered it from his days in the Peace Corps in Zimbabwe, where communities have been making peanut butter for generations. What started out as a side project making 30 jars at a time quickly turned into Big Spoon Roasters.
Almond Cocoa Butter is available at shop.bigspoonroasters.com and in stores nationwide. Big Spoon Roasters is part of the Good Food Awards, a project to honor food and drink producers making the sort of food we all want to eat – tasty, authentic and responsible.
From her grassroots work at the Good Food Awards to her continued education at NYU’s Food Studies Master’s Program, Kate Malin brings an unparalleled passion for great food and good people.More Food Finds:
