The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook - autographed
The reviews are in for the newest cookbook from Josh & Brent, The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook. And they're even sweeter than the recipes:
"Their new book takes what was superb and about The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook and sophisticated it in a way that is more classic and grown-up while always staying true to themselves and their audience."—BROADWAY + THRESHER
"In harmony with local and seasonal bounty of their upstate gardens in Sharon Springs, N.Y., the authors take a look back at the desserts they grew up with and offer a collection of 100 recipes for classic confections. Highlighted by personal reflections about their first encounters with these inherited and treasured recipes, the selected heirloom desserts make the cut by fitting a set of basic criteria: each must be delicious, made with readily available ingredients, and be simple to prepare. Followed by lined pages where readers can enter their own notes or versions of each seasonal dessert, this anthology encourages cooks to make their own memories relating to each dish....The Beekman boys have captured the essence of modern country living in these nostalgic heritage desserts."—Publisher's Weekly
"Organized by seasons, these desserts offer plenty of sweet satisfaction. Simpler temptations, such as lemon meringue pie, give way to chocolate-éclair pie and figgy pudding. Favorite childhood flavors appear in Dreamsicle angel-food cake. Not content with the richness of ordinary brownies, they enhance their version with chopped candy bars. Fruit in season comes into its own with such classics as peach cobbler and roasted rhubarb crisp."—Booklist
Each of the 100+ recipes in The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook have their roots in our families' history, with our own signature tweaks to make them our own. And like everything about life on Beekman 1802 Farm, our cookbook is divided by season to highlight the freshest garden ingredients and holiday favorites.
Unlike any other cookbook, we designed ours to be a generational keepsake with blank pages so that your family heirloom recipes can be stored safely in one place and handed down to the next generation. And because our own personal cookbook collection has our scribbles written in nearly every margin, we left a column on every single recipe page to add your own notes.
