Cherry Bombe is a magazine that fosters and celebrates a growing community of women in various aspects of the culinary world: chefs, entrepreneurs, farmers, and producers. Launched in 2013, after a successful kickstarter campaign by former colleagues at Harper’s Bazaar- Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu, Cherry Bombe is published twice a year.
