Product Details


“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

“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
