New Cookbook: The Short Stack Cookbook

February 14th, 2017

The Short Stack Cookbook: Ingredients That Speak Volumes

Another new cookbook I came across in my reading. I was able to quickly and easy download the cookbook as an ebook from my local library — and perhaps you can, too. Don’t forget this excellent source for new books of all sorts.

The Short Stack Cookbook is an interesting complication — selecting 18 “essential ingredients” and then finding some of the best food writers available today to select their best and favorite recipes for that ingredient.

I found a few recipes to check out here in my own kitchen and most of the ingredients were something that I would normally cook and eat — being a bit fussy about my food choices. Brussel sprouts and squash aren’t going to show up on my table unless I am making them for family or guests, but there are plenty of other ingredients to choose from including lemon, apples, cheddar, honey, rice, tomatoes and more.

A few of the recipes I found interesting include:

  • Cheddar Obatzda (Beer Cheese)
  • Cheddar-Walnut Shortbread
  • Lemon-Cornmeal Poundcake
  • Lemony Ricotta Pancakes
  • Smoked Mozzarella & Sage in Sourdough Carrozza
  • Pappardelle wth Bacon & Root Vegetable Ragu
  • and many more!


The first cookbook from Short Stack Editions, an artful collection of 150 new and original recipes organized by ingredient from IACP and James Beard Award–winning cookbook authors, chefs, food writers, recipe testers, and editors.

The ethos behind Short Stack Editions is simple: Pair honest, common ingredients with trusted voices in the culinary world for inspired recipes home cooks can actually use. And for their first cookbook, Short Stack founders Nick Fauchald and Kaitlyn Goalen call upon their acclaimed contributors to extend their love letters to favorite ingredients. Exclusively created for this cookbook, these recipes–from all-star chefs, food writers, editors, and stylists–are destined to become favorites.
