“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea.” - Roald Dahl
In the middle of reading this book. Fascinating (no, it really is fascinating) look behind the scenes of how peanut butter came to be such an iconic staple of American cuisine.
What I've learned so far is that George Washington Carver, the African-American scientist who is attributed with inventing peanut butter, DID NOT invent peanut butter and all of the things I was taught about him in school were false. Very surprising indeed.
The downside, of course, of reading this book is that I'm now constantly craving PB&J sandwiches.
