Alinea Cookbook: PB&J

Inspired by both the blog Alinea At Home ( and by Grant Achatz’ comment from the November 2008 issue of Chicago magazine where he said:

"…the recipes are not hard. I challenge anyone to find a recipe in that book that is more complicated than your basic scratch chocolate cake,”

I have taken it upon myself to cook as much from the Alinea cookbook as I can.

I don’t mean to be a braggart, Mr. Achatz, but I make a mean chocolate cake.

For my first experiment, I’ve made Alinea’s take on the American lunchbox classic, PB&J.

It ain’t perfect, but I’m damn proud of how these eight little bread and PB wrapped grapes turned out.
