Waar komt Pindakaas vandaan?

Book cover

Do you know where peanut butter comes from? We certainly didn’t, but we found out quickly when the Institute for Dutch Lexicology asked us to create the cover for a booklet about the Dutch language.

The Dutch word for peanut butter is ‘pindakaas’ (peanut cheese) and to show where ‘peanut cheese’ comes from, we crafted a peanut cheese; a chunk of cheese made out of a peanut. We presented it on a cheeseboard and it looks like the real deal. It’s really a Dutch thing though.
