“The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook” is “heirloom” in every sense of the word: The Fabulous Beekman Boys, Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge, showcase heirloom fruits and vegetables; offer delicious heirloom recipes from farm, family, and friends; and include a section in the back of each chapter so you can personalize the book with your own treasured recipes — and create a unique keepsake to hand down to your family. From springtime pea pod risotto and summery strawberry shortcake to quick braised collards in autumn and yummy chicken 'n' dumplings for a snowy winter's day, this is simple yet luscious farm-fresh fare that everyone will love.

There has been a slow, steady and excited buzz permeating Cazenovia in recent weeks that can all be boiled down to the fact that the nationally-known “Fabulous Beekman Boys” — bestselling authors, farmers, entrepreneurs and recent winners of television’s “The Amazing Race” — are coming to town on Saturday, Jan. 26. The two-hour event, sponsored by the Historic Cazenovia Business District committee of the chamber of commerce, will feature Josh Kilmer-Purcell and his partner Brent Ridge giving a special book signing of their “Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook” and Kilmer-Purcell’s New York Times best-selling nonfiction book, “The Bucolic Plague: How two Manhattanites became gentleman farmers: An unconventional memoir,” from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Lincklaen House on Albany Street.
