New Small-Format Cookbook Short Stack Launches Kickstarter Campaign

The covers look like chocolate bars!

Riding the wave of food journals is Short Stack, Nick Fauchald's series of small-format, hand-stitched cookbooks. Each edition is inspired by a specific ingredient and written by a single author — a "love letter" of sorts. The first three volumes are "Eggs," by writer Ian Knauer; "Tomatoes," by hospitality consultant Soa Davies (formerly of Le Bernardin); and "Strawberries," by author and food stylist Susan Spungen. Fauchald's aiming to raise $50,000 so he can begin printing books by the end of July and get them into bookstores in August. You can donate to his campaign here. [Earlier, Kickstarter]
