The Beekan 1802 Heirloom Cookbook

Turn to your friends when you need a good recipe and you won’t be disappointed.

That’s how the Fabulous Beekman Boys Josh and Brent ensured their Beekman1802 Heirloom Cookbook would be full of useful recipes.

Heirloom vegetable and fruits on their goat farm in upstate New York inspired the partners, goat farmers and Planet Green television stars to collect heirloom recipes from family and friends.

Changing seasons on the farm and in the garden shaped the chapters. Spring brings the joy of baby peas for Linguine with Peas and Garlic Scapes. Summer means peaches for Peach Cake. Pumpkins make an autumnal chili and winter brings cabbages and root vegetables for hearty soups and sides.

Good food, whether for family or guests, can come from the garden as easily as a restaurant, when you’ve got the right recipe.

Cook an heirloom-inspired recipe and taste for yourself how good the past tastes when it meets the present.
