“A Seat at the Table” with Beekman 1802

Sunday, September 17, 2017, 4:00 pm
When Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell both lost their jobs in the Recession of 2008 and decamped to a small farming community in upstate NY to start their lives over, they relied on the help of their neighbors to teach them virtually everything they needed to know to start a surprisingly complex "simple life". As their farm grew, so did their collection of artisans that make up the lifestyle company they created and named Beekman 1802. 

A SEAT AT THE TABLE: Recipes to Nourish Your Family, Friends, and Community is Ridge and Kilmer-Purcell's fourth cookbook, and their most personal yet. Based on the beautiful community the authors found when they moved from New York City to Sharon Springs, this gorgeously illustrated cookbook embodies the traditional story of stone soup, in which everyone brings their small piece to the pot to create a sum much greater than its parts. 

This Fall, join the "Beekman Boys" at Proctors for a presentation on their cookbook. 
VIP ticketholders will enjoy the presentation, a copy of A SEAT AT THE TABLE, Cocktail hour and dinner with Josh and Brent featuring a 4-course meal from recipes pulled from their brand-new cookbook. Cocktail hour features four small plate offerings. 
 
Dinner Menu for VIP ticketholders:
Field Greens, Fig, and Brie Salad
Beekman Burnt Broccoli Soup
Fried Chicken Cutler with Egg & Arugula or Linguine with Lemon Sauce (Vegetarian Option)
Salvation Chocolate Mousse Cake

Copies of A SEAT AT THE TABLE: Recipes to Nourish Your Family, Friends, and Community will be sold immediately following the presentation.
