Short Stack Cookbooks
Short Stack is a series of small-format cookbooks authored by America’s top culinary talents. Each edition is a collectible, single-subject booklet packed with recipes that offer ingenious new ways to cook our favorite ingredients.
Each Short Stack focuses on a single ingredient and is written by a single author. Every volume consists of 20 to 25 recipes, but beyond that, no two volumes are alike. In any given Short Stack Edition, there is a wide spectrum of recipes, ranging from sweet to savory, and breakfast to dinner.
We work with some of the best recipe creators in the business.Our authors have decades of experience working as cookbook authors, food writers, chefs,food stylists and more. You can learn more about our individual authors here. Interested in authoring a Short Stack edition? Read about our pitching guidelines and requirements here.
Launched in 2013, Short Stack Editions published its first three volumes through the success of a Kickstarter campaign. We publish six titles each year, and sell our volumes in retail outlets across America and around the world.
In creating Short Stack, we drew from our experience working in cookbook and magazine publishing. Like the best cookbooks, Short Stack Editions consist of original recipes created and rigorously tested by a single author with the home cook in mind. They are beautiful objects meant to be collected, gifted and, most importantly, cooked from. And, like the best food magazines, Short Stack editions are concise, affordable and built for function.
Short Stack is a contemporary offering of old-school craftsmanship. Each book is printed in America on high-quality paper and our production process is intimate and specialized.
All of Short Stack’s covers and illustrations are original artwork designed by our creative director, Rotem Raffe. You can see more of her work here.
