My pal and former coworker, Nick Fauchald, launched Short Stack in the summer of 2013, along with creative director Rotem Raffe and editor/also-pal Kaitlyn Goalen.
Their concept is inspired: 48-page recipe booklets focused on a single ingredient. Nick asked me to write one, and we winnowed the choice down to one of my favorite vegetables, sweet potatoes.
There are savory recipes, like Sweet-Potato Gnocchi with Marjoram-Almond Sauce and Shepherd's Pie. There are sweet recipes, like Thanksgiving Casserole with Ginger Meringue and Sweet-Potato Jam.
There are a lot fewer orange roots mounded on my counters these days. I hope the book inspires you to welcome new ways with sweet potatoes into your own kitchen.
