Oct. 4 2011
Welcome to Beekman 1802, in Sharon Springs, NY--the historic home of The Fabulous Beekman Boys, Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge. Josh and Brent star in the popular show on Planet Green TV, and they have built a worldwide reputation for their goat's milk soaps and superb, artisanal Blaak cheese.

Together, Josh and Brent have created a gorgeous cookbook that is “heirloom” in every sense of the word: they showcase heirloom fruits and vegetables; offer delicious heirloom recipes from farm, family, and friends; and include a section in the back of each chapter so you can personalize the book with your own treasured recipes--and create a unique keepsake to hand down to your family.

From springtime pea pod risotto and summery strawberry shortcake to quick braised collards in autumn and yummy chicken 'n' dumplings for a snowy winter's day, this is simple yet luscious farm-fresh fare that everyone will love.

Product Description


“Manhattanites-turned-farmers Ridge and Kilmer-Purcell (beekman1802.com), of reality TV's The Fabulous Beekman Boys, present a brilliantly simple, flawlessly executed collection of seasonal starters, main dishes, sides, and desserts. Readers can expect familiar recipes with a twist, like Homemade Lemonade with Lavender and Vanilla, Mac and Cheese with Kale and Mushrooms, and Bourbon Roast Turkey. Several dishes feature hard-to-find ingredients or heirloom produce, but generally it can be substituted with conventional equivalents and the recipes include variations. The beverages are especially good, and there are a number of fall and winter recipes suitable for the holiday table.”  -- Library Journal (STARRED REVIEW)
“Borrowing not so much the title as the spirit behind a now-classic cookbook, this enchanting food celebration is all about the joy of cooking. It is also about the joy of using local and seasonal produce and sharing recipes. The authors own a goat farm in upstate New York...and their cookbook is based on their experiences. Its 110 recipes are arranged in four chapters according to the seasons, and the guiding theme for inclusion is that the food is “simple and delicious.” Stress is placed on fresh ingredients, and everyday recipes appear alongside special-event recipes. As every cookbook should, this one shows a deep layer of personalization; the authors' personalities and tastes sweetly enrich the whole book. And foodies will appreciate the ample supply of illustrations of finished products. The first recipe in the collection is deviled eggs with smoked trout, and the reader will rightly guess that this rich treat kicks off an entire book of exciting recipes. A summer meal is topped off with a jumble berry pie, fall brings beef chili with pumpkin and beans, and the holiday season sees bourbon roast turkey served with cornbread stuffing. Oh my!” --Booklist (STARRED REVIEW)
“The dynamic stars of Planet Green TV's The Fabulous Beekman Boys offer up the ultimate volume of their most treasured, hand-me-down recipes. In order to “relinquish the overly indulgent and instantly gratified existence to which we had become accustomed,” memoirist Kilmer-Purcell (The Bucolic Plague, 2010, etc.) and Ridge, a former vice president at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, relocated to the 60-acre Beekman farm in upstate New York. Inspired by the country life, their cookbook emphasizes the use of fresh, organic, homegrown ingredients--and not just because their farmhouse is located 20 miles from the nearest grocery store. The authors organize the sections seasonally, beginning with springtime offerings that include greens from the garden to make Dandelion or Spinach salads; asparagus, both roasted and baked into a “custardy” torte; and homegrown peas in a white wine risotto with freshly picked strawberries and rhubarb for sweeter creations. While somewhat light on creativity, heirloom garden fruits and vegetables highlight cool, basic summery offerings such as Chanterais Melon Salad, Grandma's Potato Salad, Meat Loaf Burgers using the authors' signature “Blaak Cheese,” and Buttery Peach Cake. The bountiful harvests from fall and winter inspire more rustic, hearty meals like Hungarian Pork Goulash, Baked Apple Dumplings and Spiced Carrot Cake. Vibrant photographs and personal memories and anecdotes round out this obvious labor of love. The authors shine best when tweaking commonplace recipes with alterations of their own, which, they write, add flavor, sophistication and spicy diversity. For instance, “Supermoist Corn Bread” benefits from the addition of buttermilk and sour cream, while linguine is transformed with freshly chopped mint and lavender. Epicurean advice on toasting nuts and making buttermilk, poultry stocks and greens further enhances this uniquely homespun collection of throwback recipes.
Classic, unfettered goodness with a sustainable mindset.” --Kirkus Reviews

“The Beekman Boys, aka Kilmer-Purcell and Ridge, two former city dwellers who share tales of country life through posts on cooking, health, decorating, gardening, and more on their popular Web site, Beekman1802.com, and in their regularly e-mailed newsletter, are stars on the rise. Featured on Planet Green TV, the duo take their 'heirloom' lifestyle to the masses, creating goat's milk soaps and artisanal cheese, and with their latest endeavor, a cookbook. Organized by season (and subdivided by course), this well-designed gift title presents Heirloom Recipes the authors hope will be passed down through generations, created by 'using ingredients the minute they are plucked out of the garden.' While new cooks may be intimidated by the lack of information on technique or instructional photos or illustrations, the appealing collection of seasonal recipes--spring's dandelion salad with hot bacon dressing; summer's lemonade with lavender and vanilla; fall's roast pork loin with gingerbread stuffing; and winter's macaroni and cheese with kale and mushroom--entice and inspire anyone with a nearby farmers' market. A 'Notes' section gives the title an old-fashioned, personal feel, and top-notch photography by Paulette Tavormina, along with chapter-opening quotes by authors including Henry James, create a complete package that will make even the die-hard urbanite fantasize about country living or at the very least, eating at the farmhouse table. “-- Publishers Weekly

5.0 out of 5 stars A family's cookbook Oct. 18 2011
By wogan - Published on Amazon.com
The Beekman brothers have a farm and a TV show, on which they pride themselves with their natural, seasonal and artisan products. This is the cookbook that is a result of their philosophies using heirloom and seasonal fruits and vegetables.
Their aim is to have this as keepsake to hand down to your family too. The book has 6 pages with protective covers and inserts to include your own recipes. There are pictures for every 3rd or 4th recipe and also of their home, farm and and the ingredients they use. An introduction is included where they explain their food, philosophies and inform the reader about their lives at Beekman Farm.

Each recipe has a place for you to write your own notes and a few sentences about the recipe itself. Tips are also included, such as toasting nuts and buying and ripening peaches. The recipes are divided by spring, summer, fall and winter. Each section has starters, main dishes, side dishes and desserts.
We have already tried the ham and cheese strata which can be fixed the night before and was a hit with our family; the pumpkin cheese bread is marvelous, with the cheese adding a different flavor than normal pumpkin bread. Other winners were beer-braised beef with onion dumplings. We also fixed harvest beef chili which includes pumpkin and has very interesting flavors, and roast pork loin with gingerbread stuffing and also mushroom pilaf.

All of the dishes we tried and others in the book have unexpected but interesting and different flavors and make for some very remarkable dishes. This would definitely make a great addition for any cookbook collection for you or as a gift.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Heirloom Gift Oct. 4 2011
By Fairyhouse Lady - Published on Amazon.com
I have three daughters and I like to pass along Cook Books. This is the perfect gift for a person who wants to learn time honored recipes. The recipes in this book are easy to follow and it has photos that belong in a frame on your wall. There is an area on the side of the page for notes and it also has room to add your heirloom recipes in the beginning of the book. Great addition to your cook book collection. I ended up purchasing four books, one for me of course!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well done and thoughtful! Oct. 27 2011
By Eric D Kankaala - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this cookbook when the boys visited the San Francisco Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. Josh and Brent were kind enough to not only host a cooking demonstration, but also stuck around to visit with everyone. I have met them a couple of times now, and they always are very genuine and exactly how you would expect them to be. Anyways, back to the book. You can tell that the recipes have been very well thought out and I love how they have split the cookbook into the different seasons of the year. The blank spaces in the book, where you can add your own notes, is a thoughtful touch, and the pictures are some of the most beautiful pictures of food I have ever seen! The Beekman Boys promote a lifestyle of knowing and respecting the food you consume, and their cookbook goes a long way to promote just that. So, follow their lead... know where your food comes from and how it is grown or raised, garden if you can, and enjoy and share food and recipes with those you love!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great cookbook! Nov. 1 2011
By John E. Sica - Published on Amazon.com
I love this cookbook! It's different than any other cookbook I have and I have alot of cookbooks. It's set up by season. I've had it now for about a month and having a great time cooking up the recipes in Fall chapter! Their is a section for each recipe to write down your changes you made so it's your own recipe. Also includes a section to write your own recipes in that you would like to pass down to the next generation.
Another reason why this cookbook is so great is because it is for any type of cook. They are not complicated recipes and have ingredients that are in your regular supermarket or better yet, your local farmers market. Quick and easy recipes that are full of flavor. Even my family members are asking me for recipes from dishes I made from this book that don't like to cook but say they can make these meals.
Do yourself a FLAVOR and get this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, and unlike any other! Nov. 3 2011
By JeniAnn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Like the Beekman Boys themselves, this cookbook is like no other that I have (and I'm a cookbook junkie)! It is beautifully photographed, and there are so many wonderful recipes that are sorted by season, so you can get what is fresh. They live on the east coast, and I the west, so some things won't be available locally for me, but there is a "notes" section on each individual recipe so you can add your changes and keep track of what works! The recipes are unique and I can't wait to cook my way through this cookbook, which isn't something I can say for most of the ones I have, typically its a few recipes, but I want to try nearly everything in this book!

I would highly recommend this as an addition to your collection or a gift for the cookbook junkie in your life. They will love it! There's even a section for you to add your own recipes to the book so that it can be passed down for generations.
