I don't bake as much as I'd like but one thing that always inspires me is a great cookbook. These pint size beauties were born last summer as a result of a savvy Kickstarter Project by Nick Fauchald.
Starting with three titles, Nick was able to secure all the necessary funds, (and thensome) through Kickstarter. His idea for Short Stack is that each book is inspired by a single ingredient and written by a single author. They are, as their name suggests, short. Each edition is about 50 pages long and full of various ways to cook, bake and prepare that featured food item.
The Short Stack cookbooks have quickly garnered a large fan base and in just over a year, Nick has expanded his line to include a dozen different titles. These three are all written by southern chefs- Angie Mosier writes about Buttermilk, Virginia Willis shares her love of Grits, and for the newest edition, Libbie Summers executes the most scrumptious dishes with Brown Sugar.
And the best part is Angie, Virginia and Libbie will be on hand to demonstrate recipes from their Short Stack cookbooks this Saturday, November 22 at the Preserving Place in Atlanta. Sadly, I'll be out of town but if I could, I'd be there early, in the front row, eager to meet and mingle and taste and admire... If you're in this part of town, I hope you can make it. (They'd make amazing holiday gifts too) Just click here to learn more.
