Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Founders Dr. Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell call their 1802 Beekman Heirloom farm and website "a shared experience in seasonal living." Two years ago, these TV stars extended that sharing with The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook, a recipe repository that became a reader-approved cookbook. Now they return with a collection of 100 dessert treats, each accompanied by a mini-history or personal story. The second course of a popular culinary series.

Publishers Weekly
The historic Beekman homestead and goat farm of ex-Manhattanites Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell (The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook) has not only inspired a chic line of goat milk soaps and cheeses, but has now produced a second cookbook. 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. Vintage recipes reflecting the “Four Seasons of Sweetness” include twists on family favorites such as a Creamsicle Angel Food Cake and a banana cake with cream cheese frosting for spring. There’s a summery plum upside-down cake, and for fall, a Blackberry Betty. Recipes for basic pie dough, ice creams, and holiday desserts are also included. The Beekman boys have captured the essence of modern country living in these nostalgic heritage desserts. (Sept.)

"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

"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

    Title: The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook 100 Delicious

    Title: The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook
    100 Delicious Heritage Recipes from the Farm and Garden
    Author: Josh Kilmer-Purcell, Brent Ridge, Sandy Gluck
    Publisher: Rodale Books
    Published: 9-10-2013

    This cookbook is filled to overflowing with the same type of recipes many of us have written in notebooks and on recipe cards that read Aunt Mae's this or Grandmas' that. Recipes that are tried and true and passed down through the generations because the are loved and asked for by all. It is aptly named because this cookbook will become an heirloom to be passed on through the family from generation to generation.

    Divided into the seasons the recipes are broken down seasonal ingredients, but will evoke memories of your own family get togethers. In Winter I found a recipe for Snow Cream, something I remember my grandmother making when we visited Michigan in the winter and a Double Ginger Cake that Great-Aunt Edith would make for me every year that I could not get her to share. When I made it I was 10 again sitting in her kitchen waiting in anticipation for the cake to cool so I might have a piece. The only difference was she used orange juice instead of lemon, but I found lemon was quite tasty too.


    My family is always pleased when I review a cookbook because they get to try so many different dishes, but they all agreed this is one we needed to be sure and place an order for quick delivery. Each of remembers at least one of the recipes with a fondness from our childhood and family reunions. Many of those who made them originally are gone now, but with The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook they come alive once more for us through the memories these dessert bring to mind.


    With easy to follow instructions and little bits of wisdom that comes included with each recipe you will soon be adding this special cookbook to your collection of favorites. With a place to make your personal notes on each recipe and even a place to enter your favorite recipe for each season this is a cookbook to be cherished, loved and passed on as a family heirloom. Be sure to check it out soon you will not want to miss another day without trying some of these wonderful recipes. You will find everything from a basic pie dough recipe to Carmel Apples to Sweet Green Tomato Hand Pies, their are recipes to appeal to everyone. The pictures are absolutely stunning and bring that extra quality that makes you want to take the dessert right off the page and indulge.

    Would recommend this dessert book

    I love this dessert book. It's NOT fussy or stuffy like others but in simple terms with pictures of the desserts. Just received this book so have not been able to try out the desserts but have so many marked to try. I only wish their farm was near by. This would be a great gift for someone that likes heirloom recipes. Also like how the book is divided into seasons.

    Great Recipes, Beautiful Book

    This is not just another dessert cookbook. The care & thought that had gone into this book is evident from cover to cover. I especially liked not having to look at prepared recipes on every page, but rather interesting photos.

    Would highly recommend!
