“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.”
author of Dorie’s Cookies and the New York Times bestseller, Baking Chez Moi, 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."
James Beard award-winning chef and author of Zahav, Michael Solomonov

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

"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."
The Kitchn
