Dr. T.A. Peterson, known as Dr. Pete to his patients in Savannah, often made house calls. But at home, he enjoyed cooking for family and friends. His grilled steaks and wine marinade was a favorite.

In 1985, his daughter and son-in-law, Jan and Joel Coffee, began bottling some of the family recipes and selling them under the Dr. Pete’s label.

The Burgundy Marinade was their first product, and it continues to be the company’s best-selling marinate.

The company also offers other tasty marinades (Coffee Balsamic) and gluten-free dressings (Parmesan Pepper and Southwest Lime).

But it is Dr. Pete’s Praline Mustard Glaze ($8.25 for an eight-ounce jar) that gets raves from foodies and longtime fans. The glaze, a combination of brown sugar, mustard, spices and pecans, works on meats, cheeses (like brie) and vegetables.

Three years ago, the company began to offer baking mixes, like lemon and Key Lime, wrapped in burlap bags for $7.25 per bag.

Marinades and dressings in 12.7-ounce bottles are $8.25 each.
