The Beekman brothers have a farm and a TV show, on which they pride themselves with their natural, seasonal and artisan products. This is the cookbook that is a result of their philosophies using heirloom and seasonal fruits and vegetables.
Their aim is to have this as keepsake to hand down to your family too. The book has 6 pages with protective covers and inserts to include your own recipes. There are pictures for every 3rd or 4th recipe and also of their home, farm and and the ingredients they use. An introduction is included where they explain their food, philosophies and inform the reader about their lives at Beekman Farm.

Each recipe has a place for you to write your own notes and a few sentences about the recipe itself. Tips are also included, such as toasting nuts and buying and ripening peaches. The recipes are divided by spring, summer, fall and winter. Each section has starters, main dishes, side dishes and desserts.
We have already tried the ham and cheese strata which can be fixed the night before and was a hit with our family; the pumpkin cheese bread is marvelous, with the cheese adding a different flavor than normal pumpkin bread. Other winners were beer-braised beef with onion dumplings. We also fixed harvest beef chili which includes pumpkin and has very interesting flavors, and roast pork loin with gingerbread stuffing and also mushroom pilaf.

All of the dishes we tried and others in the book have unexpected but interesting and different flavors and make for some very remarkable dishes. This would definitely make a great addition for any cookbook collection for you or as a gift.

I think that people who have a garden and grow heirloom vegetables will love this cookbook. It has a lot of interesting recipes.

The directions are clear and for each recipe you will get the number of servings and a short comment.

In conclusion: a cookbook for gardeners. If you don’t have a garden it can be tricky to cook using the recipes from this book because some of the ingredients may prove to be hard to find.
