A gentleman knows how to prepare a proper dish with just his favorite ingredients, and we at GNTLMN are excited to help. Presenting the Short Stack Cookbooks. A handmade set of three cookbooks, each focusing on a different key ingredient (eggs, tomatoes, and strawberries).
The set is hand-stitched and bound with a limited edition towel featuring a beautiful Short Stack print. Written by Ian Knauer (Gourmet Magazine), Soa Davies (Le Bernardin, HBO, Bon Appétit) and Susan Spungen (Martha Stewart Living, Food & Wine).
Below a little insight from publisher and friend of GNTLMN Nick Fauchald.
Q: After having supplied readers with recipes via apps and websites in the past, you’ve taken a decidedly analog approach with the Short Stack Cookbooks. What motivated this change, and how did the creation process differ from creating apps and web content?
A: Producing these booklets was a refreshing return to my magazine roots. I’m all too aware of the short half-life recipes can have in digital form. It sounds counter-intuitive, yes, but I still think great recipes are most permanent when printed on a sheet of paper. There’s something about flipping through a cookbook that you can replicate on a computer. The Internet is great for searching for a recipe, but I don’t trust just anything I find via Google; I want to know who created the recipe and if they took the time to make sure it will work in my kitchen. I hope our readers will keep their Short Stack editions handy for whenever they need a new idea for cooking a favorite ingredients. And, like all good cookbooks, we hope our readers will collect Short Stacks and pass them along to their friends and family.
