Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge, MD, stars of Planet Green’s “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” love to pull things from the dirt and put healthy farm-fresh twists on family recipes. It’s one of the their favorite parts of living on their upstate New York farm, Beekman 1802.

But the couple of urbanites-turned-farmers realized they weren’t really recording the variations on favorite recipes from childhood.

Rather than scrawl them on index cards, they created a cookbook, which debuted this month—The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook—that would share their own recipes and also allow every cook to record their modifications down to that extra handful of basil.

“The book is not just ours,” says Dr. Ridge. “It literally becomes your book as well.”

Beekman Boys Heirloom CookbookEach recipe comes with lined space to record notes, and cookbook owners also get access to an online community where they can post tips and variations as they try each recipe, along with photos of their finished products.

The 112 recipes they chose to include in the book are organized into seasons and call for ingredients they harvest on the farm. (Hence no tropical fruits or exotic spices.)

Ultimately, the Beekman Boys hope that the cookbook will be passed down through families, with their heirlooms becoming yours, in a home more secure than memory.

Says Ridge, “Fifty years from now, when you see your mom’s meatloaf written in her handwriting, it will be an important and emotional experience.” —Lisa Elaine Held
