CHERRY BOMBE – A New Magazine That Celebrates Women and Food

CHERRY BOMBE is a new biannual magazine that celebrates women and food—those who grow it, make it, serve it, study it, enjoy it and everything in between.Cherry-Bomb-Magazine

This magazine explores women’s contribution to the indie food scene, and almost all of its contributors are women, as well. It features a variety of cultures, cuisines and people, including chefs, servers, food stylists and scientists, culinary icons and up-and-coming entrepreneurs. The magazine is described on its Kickstarter page as, “sustenance and style and the things that nourish the mind, the eye and, of course, the stomach.” The first issue hits bookstores May 10.

Recently, I’ve blogged about print publications that have been born from websites with a huge following, such as ALLRECIPES, or publications that are purposefully building an audience online before launching in print, such as NAUTILUS. Cherry Bombe is an example of the exact opposite tactic. At $18 per issue, the founders are hoping to create a publication that lands on the bookshelf, not in the recycling bin. And according to their Kickstart page, the Cherry Bombe website will connect their community of readers but not duplicate any of its print content. “We’ll have plenty to offer the person who still loves the printed page and having an actual, physical thing to read and linger over.”

This magazine will be available in select bookstores, magazine shops and boutiques worldwide. Cherry Bombe is the creation of Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu, former colleagues at HARPER’S BAZAAR, info@cherrybombe.com.
