Beautifully designed, Cherry Bombe appears twice a year to celebrate women and food. It’s a trend spotter, a nostalgia trip, an occasional provocateur, and a bit of frivolity, all bound together with strong writing. Each issue has a theme that contributors address from a range of viewpoints.
For this issue, the theme is “Feast Your Eyes.” While there are many visually-arresting tidbits of food, clothing, and houseware design, there are also short features that include an account of dining with a six-year-old at the Four Seaons (illustrated by Hilary Knight), and profiles of coverwoman Padma Lakshmi, artist Sarah Illenberger, New Orleans chef Leah Chase, and blogger Molly Yeh.
Color photographs throughout. Paperback.
