Tee Vee Machine Alert : @Beekman1802Boys Marathon Tonight On @CookingChannel

The Fabulous Beekman Boys are, well, fabulous and starting tonight at 9pm EST Cooking Channel will run a marathon of the Fabulous Beekman Boys!

If your only reference point for the Beekman Boys is knowing them as the winners of the most recent season of the Amazing Race, you are in for a treat!

In this series two Manhattanites move to a 200 year old farm in upstate New York and discover that the live of the gentleman farmer is not as simple as they expected. Think of it as a modern "Green Acres" with Josh and Brent both cast in the role of Oliver and a diva llama called "PolkaSpot" as Lisa. There'll be goats, and cheese, and farm festivals and, well let's just say that it will be fabulous.

In addition to reality television, the Beekman Boys are accomplished foodies and farmers. The cheese from their farm receives praise and accolades wherever it is sold. The goat milk soaps and dry goods inspired by discoveries at their farm are available in some speciality stores around the country and have a knack of selling out quickly. Of course one of my favorite Beekman items is their cookbook.

Read my review of the Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook  on Hot From The Kettle. (Did I mention that its the best cookbook of 2012?)
