Praise For The Short Stack Cookbook: Ingredients That Speak Volumes

“Just riffling through the pages of this book is enough to make you race into the kitchen and start cooking.  Short Stack is long on smart writing, terrific recipes and inspiring ideas.  It’s a book that’s bound to energize a cook’s creative spirit.”

— Dorie Greenspan

"The Short Stack Cookbook offers a fresh new approach to instructional cooking.  All of the recipes are exciting, creative, and simple to prepare.  Professional chefs often start with a singular ingredient – it could range from a childhood memory to a leftover loaf of sourdough in the fridge.  This is the first book of its kind to encourage heartfelt cooking of the two with family, friends, and people you have yet to meet."

— Michael Solomonov

“This book has the charm of the covetable small-scale Short Stack Editions, with the same beautiful, playful design and ingredient-respectful recipes. Enchanting and inspiring.”

— Nigella Lawson

“There is a spirit, a craftiness to Short Stack-- a celebration of the new, with an embrace of the handy, homemade that anchors us all. It is the ultimate celebration of charmed focus and the perfect place to take your curious kitchen spirit one ingredient at a time.”

"The one big Short Stack tome I can really sink my teeth into.”

— Erin Gleeson

"A food publication that is honest-to-goodness about cooking."

"Old-Fashioned Cookbooks for a New Century."

"Holding one of these Short Stack mini-cookbooks feels like being handed something special—a secret note passed in class, a mix tape made just for you, a slim diary found in the back of a garage sale book."

“This is a visually hip, color-coded compilation of ingredient-focused recipes. The emphasis is on ease, and you’ll find some of the most accomplished and reliable chefs and cookbook authors among the book’s contributors.”
