The Beekman Boys (Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge): The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Vegetable Cookbook

Monday, June 2, 2014 at 7:00pm

Central Library, Wheeler Auditorium 400 Cathedral Street, Baltimore, MD 21201

Celebrity authors Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge, hosts of "The Fabulous Beekman Boys" on the Cooking Channel and winners of the 21st season of "The Amazing Race," talk about their new book, a year-long trip through the Beekman vegetable bounty.

Dubbed "gay Green Acres," The Fabulous Beekman Boys chronicles the lives of two city boys, Brent, a physician who previously worked for Marth Stewart Omnimedia, and Josh, a former advertising art director, in their real time adventure as novice farmers. Their working goat farm is renowned for its handcrafted goat milk soaps and artisanal Blaak cheese.

The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Vegetable Cookbook is packed with simple, delicious, and seasonal recipes that demonstrate how we can cook with fresh vegetables year round.

Presented in partnership with Baltimore GreenWorks as part of the Sustainable Speaker Series.

The Ivy Bookshop will have copies of the book for sale at a book signing following the program.
