Cherry Bombe Jubilee

CherryBombeJubilee-01Busy week on the horizon. On Wednesday, we’re off to New Orleans to participate in Hogs for the Cause, a barbecue and music event with proceeds going to families fighting pediatric brain cancer. If you’re in the New Orleans area, please come by and say hello!

On Sunday, I’ll be in Manhattan for the second-ever Cherry Bombe JubileeCherry Bombe is the biannual food magazine created by Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu, and they’ve organized a sold-out, one-day conference with a fascinating line-up of food world rockstars.

Below are a few photos from last year’s Jubilee. The soaring, light-filled refectory at the High Line Hotel was buzzing with 300 women who traveled from all over the country. From Alice Waters and Ruth Reichl to Barbara Lynch and April Bloomfield, chefs, food media, and PR professionals, the room was filled with women {and a few brave men} who are creating the current culinary landscape.

CherryBombeJubilee-02Le Creuset was one of the sponsors who made the day possible. Here’s their gorgeous, new, matte-finish collection.
