    The Beekman Shandy

    BY:Josh and Brent

    Variations of the Shandy can be found in countries from Germany to Africa.  (We first tasted one while traveling in China!)   Classically, a Shandy is made by filling a glass half-full with a dark beer and then topping it off with lemonade.    A Shandygaff is made by mixing beer and ginger ale or root […]

    Cherry, Forever

    BY:Josh and Brent

Over the years we’ve made Sour Cherry Pie Sour Cherry Scones Sour Cherry Strudel Sour Cherry Sorbet Sour Cherry Caflouti and even Sour Cherry Bounce But we’re certainly not the first to carry out a love affair with the […]

    Rose Petal Custard Puffs

    BY:Josh and Brent

    We have several very old cottage rose bushes in the garden at the Beekman, and each time we pass by their intoxicating blooms we wonder “how can we capture that in a recipe?” Of course there are lots of rose recipes out there already. Tea breads. Rose jellies. Candied roses. But we wanted to try […]

    Strawberry Rhubarb Pie with Hazelnut Crumble

    BY:Josh and Brent

    We used to be very anti-strawberry rhubarb pie. We thought there was something…oh…weak about adding strawberries to rhubarb. If you’re not (wo)man enough to handle a straight rhubarb pie, then maybe you shouldn’t be eating rhubarb in the first place, you know? A plain rhubarb pie has always been the first fresh fruit pie we […]

    Pickled Radish Pods

    BY:Josh and Brent

    There’s never an “okay” radish season. It seems that each year is either a bumper crop of perfectly bulbous spicy delicacies, or a complete bust of bolted, measly, woody tap-roots. But even in the worst years, when late frosts kills the earliest radish seedlings and early heat waves force the surviving plants to bolt, there’s […]

    Dried Garlic Scapes

    BY:Josh and Brent

    Tell an old-timer that New York City foodies buy garlic scapes for $6/lb, and they’ll shake their heads so hard you can feel the breeze.  It wasn’t too long ago that garlic farmers simply left their snapped-off scapes in the fields to rot. The idea that top chefs would be clamoring for these garlic farm […]
