Recipe Resources

While I have every magazine and every book ever published by Martha Stewart Living, I'm always looking for recipe resources. My recipe resources are probably not unlike your own: food websites and blogs, hand-me-down recipes from family members, television cooking shows, and word of mouth. If I find a good recipe resource, I add that resource to a series of binders I keep filled with recipes, hints, tips and the like. They may be hand written, photo copied, or downloads from a website. Each recipe is an inspiration to try something new, or try a new twist on an old classic. I love recipes.

I've touted the joys of the Beekman 1802 website from time to time here on this blog. One section of the blog that I've grown to really enjoy is the 'Learn' section. Most recently, there have been several great recipes with wonderful photos that take you on an inspiring food preparation journey. For instance, this weeks entry in the learn section, is crispy string beans with a lemon basil aioli. Delicious. Previously, there was an excellent recipe for Risi e Bisi which is a wonderful dish made with fresh peas (and was one of the best summertime dinners I've made this year!). From sour cherry pie to cooking with nettles - the Beekman learn website has become an excellent resource for great food inspiration. So much so, it now has it's own 'binder' in my recipe collection. (no pressure Josh and Brent.. but keep those recipes coming!)

Please take a few moments to visit Beekman Farm website and enjoy all it has to offer. Take your time when you visit... you're going to learn so many things.

I tell you what, you and Andrew are going to have to make a pilgrimage to Beekman one day

Andrew said...

A pilgrimage! I'm in, Kenn. You? I've got my bonnet ready.

Kenn said...

I'm there! Actually, we hope to make a 'field trip' out to the farm and surrounding area in the Fall as a late vacation. I'd love to see the farm in the fall.
