‘PB&J for Good’ benefit event challenges local chefs’ creativity
The PB&J for Good fundraiser encourages chefs to embrace the creative, offering a gourmet take on the classic combination of peanut butter and jelly, ranging from the nostalgic to gourmet.
For instance, Buckhead diners can look forward to dishes like American Food & Beverage’s boiled peanut hummus served with bacon jelly and wood-grilled flatbread or Canoe’s PB&J cream puffs served with peanuts, strawberries, goats’ milk and chocolate.
ONE Midtown Kitchen is offering wood-grilled pork belly with mulled apple cider glaze, red onion jam, pumpkin seed brittle, kale and peanut butter and Wahoo! Grill has a peanut quesadilla with Sweet Grass Dairy’s Asher blue cheese, toasted peanuts and Emily G’s cabernet jam.
Co-founders Luke Mysse and Mike Levison created Stop SAM in 2013 after being moved by a 60 Minutes TV segment highlighting the use of a newly created fortified peanut butter formulation in treating Severe Acute Malnutrition.
PB&J for Good launched initially in Orange County, California, in 2013. Following its successful debut, Levison and Mysse launched PB&J for Good in Levison’s hometown market of Atlanta in October 2014.
