Firehouse Cookbook recipes range from "Geezer Salad" and "Jim Beam and Cola Barbequed Pork Ribs" to "Spicy Firehouse Chili" and "Fast Truck Chicken," served with a side of stories about the dishes. Renowned chef Wolfgang Puck also shows his support by sharing his barbecued pork ribs with spicy-sweet rub. Sherry Yard, Puck's executive pastry chef and a member of a firefighting family, contributed several recipes including one for warm chocolate truffle cakes.
The Fund launched a California chapter in 2008, which already has raised $30,000 and donated $5,000 to California firefighters and families in need. In August, the California chapter kicked off its scholarship program, helping family members of local firefighters attend college.
The cookbook is Jim Beam's latest show of support for the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund. Jim Beam also provides financial donations and has dedicated a specialty bottle of Bourbon to the Fund. Nationally, Jim Beam(R) has raised $200,000 since 2005, and plans to donate an additional $100,000 this year by expanding commemorative bottle sales from the East Coast to 23 states. The iconic Bourbon brand is distributing more than 36,000 cases of Jim Beam(R) bottles bearing the Fund's emblem - representing a six-fold increase in cases from the previous year.
