What could be more perfect than a magazine dedicated to women and food? Not much in my opinion. And Cherry Bombe does just that, celebrating women involved in the food industry, as well as championing beautiful aesthetics and foodie style. I’m a big fan (see previous blog posts here and here)!
It’s really not your typical women’s magazine, both in style and substance. Nothing lowbrow whatsoever, just pure inspiration, beauty and fantastically put together features, printed on lovely paper. You’ll want to read each issue, cover to cover. I was really taken with this feature (see pic below) on Dorie Greenspan, a self-taught baker who has cooked alongside the likes of Julia Child. It’s a great story, and Dorie’s honesty really comes across in the interview.
I absolutely love the illustrations which accompany her Parisian macarons recipe too – perfection!
If I lived in New York, I would have loved to go to the inaugural Cherry’s Jubilee event which brought together women (and men) working in the food industry at a one-day event, featuring inspirational talks, workshops and of course, catering, supplied by local brands run by women! Who knows, maybe I’ll get to attend in the future.
Cherry Bombe is only printed twice a year, which doesn’t seem like much, but I think makes it something special you want to savour and keep, rather than throw away after an hour. Despite this, Cherry Bombe has developed a strong online presence so you can get your fix in between issues – you can follow them on Instagram to get an insight into the aesthetics it’s guided by. You can find them on Facebook and Twitter too, where they post lots of interesting stuff!
If you like what you see, take a look at their website for details of international stockists (they’re not currently shipping globally, but hope to soon) – you won’t be disappointed.
Note this giveaway has now closed – the winner will be announced shortly.
Simply put, Cherry Bombe is one of the most beautiful print publications out there, and for one lucky reader a copy of their Autumn (Fall/Winter!) issue could be yours.
