In the true nature of Beekman 1802, where we believe in doing it yourself and in sharing, we like the fans of the shows to do the recaps.

Since this week’s episode is all about where food comes from and about the creation of our first Beekman 1802 cookbook, we thought we’d see if you can do a re-cap in recipe format (2 cups of this, a dash of that).  Give your recipe a clever name.

Leave your recipe recap for this week’s episode in the comments section below.

Remember that your goal is not only to fill people in on what happened but also to inspire newcomers to tune in.

Let’s see what you can cook up.
