The authors say “The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook” is based on the idea that the meals people love and pass down through generations of family members are heirlooms in and of themselves. When creating their first cookbook, farmers-cum-entrepreneurs, Dr. Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell, say they wanted to create a book that would become a part of these traditions.

In addition to the 100+ recipes that the two have adapted from their own families’ archives, the book includes blank recipe cards and specially designed pockets in the book to collect them so that when the book is given as a gift (perfect for holidays, housewarming, and weddings) the recipient not only gets a set of new recipes but also hand-written versions of their family’s own classics.

Additional card designs are available for download from the authors’ website at beekman1802.com

Ridge says, “We wanted to create a cookbook that wasn’t just ‘our’ cookbook, but one that truly becomes ‘your’ cookbook”.

Hardcover edition of the book is expected to be available for purchase at Boston area book signings and can also be purchased online or at bookstores everywhere in the USA.
