Packer great Leroy Butler’s second cookbook, “Leroy Butler’s Leaping Into Your Kitchen Again,” will be available exclusively at Sendik’s Food Markets beginning Wednesday, October 10.  The book features many of Butler’s favorite recipes, which are prepared with ingredients from Sendik’s. The book will sell for $25 with proceeds benefiting the Leroy Butler Foundationa charity that provides financial assistance to families impacted by breast cancer.

“I’m excited to share my favorite recipes with the fans,” said Butler. “These are recipes I’ve had in my head for years, and it was fun to write them down. More importantly, the cookbook helps us do a lot of good by supporting women who are impacted by breast cancer.”

Butler will be making personal appearances at all 10 local Sendik’s stores to autograph copies of the book for customers and share information about his foundation. Customers can also support the charity by purchasing the Leroy Butler Burger. The gourmet burger is sold exclusively in Sendik’s full-service meat department.

“Leroy’s Foundation is doing great things in our community,” said Nick Balistreri, who owns Sendik’s, along with brothers Ted and Patrick, and sister, Margaret Harris. “It’s rewarding for us to be able to support this charity, and it’s fun for our customers to have the chance to meet Leroy. We look forward to raising even more money with this new cookbook.”

This is the second cookbook by Butler, following 2009’s “Leaping into the Kitchen with Leroy Butler.” The title plays off Butler’s famous, spontaneous leap into the stands at Lambeau Field, inventing the now-famous “Lambeau Leap.”
