Beekman Cookbook Preview
This October, our Fabulous Beekman Boys (Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell) will release their first cookbook, filled with seasonal recipes, most of which were developed at their farm in Sharon Springs, New York, using only their best homegrown ingredients. To accompany the recipes, Brent and Josh asked brilliant photographer Paulette Tavormina to illustrate the book. Deep, painterly and teeming with the vitality only an artist could convey, Paulette's photographs give the book a rich sense of style that is a unique and refreshing departure from the standard cookbook. Brent says, "We were tired of all the cookbooks using the same old overlit, soft-focus photography. It was time to shake it up a bit." Paulette tells me she just finished shooting all the recipes for the book and says it was intense but fun. Below is a preview of some of Paulette's amazing work that will appear in the cookbook.
