Dr. Brent Ridge and "New York Times "bestselling author Josh
Kilmer-Purcell are not your average couple: The two Manhattanites
left their big city lives behind, and found themselves living in
bucolic Sharon Springs, New York, where they became "accidental
goat farmers." But what began as a way to reconnect with their own
style of modern country living soon exploded into a wildly
successful brand, Beekman 1802, named after their historic home.
Brent and Josh are now world-renowned for producing everything from
magnificent handcrafted goat's milk soaps to artisanal Blaak
cheese, and now, with "The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook,"
they're bringing their special vintage-modern touch to classic,
remarkable recipes bound to become family favorites year after
The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook "will show off the
delicious and decadent recipes that the Beekman Boys have collected
from across the generations of their family, from Brent's
grandmother's Fourth of July Fruitcake to Josh's mother's Hot
Chocolate Dumplings. Each recipe will be accompanied by a personal
memory from the authors or a story about how that recipe came to
be. With eco-conscious and vintage-oriented food production gaining
traction as a major culinary trend, this beautiful package will
reel in readers, whether they're nostalgic for some classic
Americana in their kitchen or just hankering for the perfect
Blackberry Betty recipe.
