The Fabulous Beekman Boys release 'Heirloom Cookbook,' join Sonja Morgan in going purple for Spirit Day

Cooking their way into hearts everywhere, The Fabulous Beekman Boys—Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge—recently launched a new cookbook titled, “The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook.”  

Aptly titled and noted as an heirloom, the book is intended to be a family keepsake that can be handed down from table to table across family generations.  The Beekman Boys have created an interactive cooking experience that allows families to adjust the recipes in the book to suit their own tastes and food experiences.  Once adjusted, families can find the original recipes online at and then share or comment on the changes made to the recipes with others.

The “Heirloom Cookbook” is intended to create a sense of community in which recipes and family experiences are inspired and shared across multiple tables from generation to generation. Organically, one can think of the book as a member of his/her family as it grows and changes with each adjustment.  The book also includes blank recipe cards and special holders that can be used to document recipes to place in the book and share through the generations.

Nominated for a 2011 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Reality Program, The Fabulous Beekman Boys presented at this year’s Amplifier Awards in New York City. In attendance were a number of other celebrity guests and honorees including star of the Real Housewives of New York City Sonja Morgan. Morgan and the Beekman Boys have recently pledged to go purple with GLAAD and other LGBT supporters by participating in Spirit Day coming up on Thursday, October 20. Join them by taking the Spirit Day pledge here!

GLAAD is excited to share with you the Beekman Boys “Heirloom Cookbook,” which includes a number of great recipes for the upcoming holiday season and is also the perfect keepsake to continually use and pass down from table to table.

Published by Sterling Epicure, “The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook” can be purchased from Barnes and Nobles bookstores and
