Heirloom recipes have a value that not even the world’s top chefs’ greatest dishes can surmount. That’s because beyond the ingredients that make up the particular flavors and textures of the meal is a mix of history and culture that make up the narrative of the food.
The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook from New York Times best-selling author Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Dr. Brent Ridge (aka The Fabulous Beekman Boys) is full of simple and delicious recipes from their farm, family and friends. The book is organized by season and showcases fresh fruits and vegetables that let you experience farm-fresh fare—from pea pod risotto and strawberry shortcake to mouth watering chicken ‘n’ dumplings and quick-braised collards—everyone will love. You’ll get a taste of Josh and Brent’s story before The Fabulous Beekman Boys premieres on Cooking Channel on September 20 at 10pm ET.
