Short Stack Collections
One-ingredient (many-recipe) cookbooks.
We’re a world of multitaskers, but sometimes it pays to focus on thing at a time. Short Stacks’ cookbooks are small-format guides to the use of one ingredient, spotlighting some traditional and not-so-traditional uses for a single food. Each volume contains a collection of recipes highlighting, for example, avocados, eggs, peaches, eggplant, ginger, and more! They’re written by well-known chefs and other experts from the culinary world—and their retro-cool design makes them a natural star for the coffee table or cookbook shelf.
