    "The Bear’s" Jeremy Allen White

    "The Bear" might be the best TV show about restaurant life ever, and its emotional center is Jeremy Allen White, formerly of "Shameless," who plays Chef Carmen “Carmy” Berzotto. Carmy, a rising star in the culinary world, returns to Chicago after the death of his brother in an attempt to save his family’s failing eatery. He’s supported and sometimes thwarted in his mission by family, his brother’s longtime crew, and an upstart sous chef named Sydney. Jeremy joins host Kerry Diamond to talk about how he prepared for his role, the team behind the show, and his take on restaurants today. Don’t miss this episode! And be sure to catch "The Bear" on Hulu.

    Healthy Candy? Yes, Says Honey Mama’s Mama, Christy Goldsby

    Healthy Candy? Yes, Says Honey Mama’s Mama, Christy Goldsby

    Christy Goldsby was helping a friend through a health crisis when she came upon a sweet but healthy treat that made her stop in her tracks. That discovery led to the creation of Honey Mama’s, the line of cocoa truffle bars—think better-for-you chocolates with nourishing ingredients—that you keep in the fridge. Christy joins host Kerry Diamond to talk about taking Honey Mama’s from local Portland, Oregon, fave to a nationally distributed darling. Christy also shares what she’s learned along the way, the tools she relies on as an entrepreneur, and how the brand has raised money over the years.

    Avec’s Dee Charlemagne On Building A Beverage Start-Up

    Avec’s Dee Charlemagne On Building A Beverage Start-Up

    The beverage category is a crowded place these days, especially with all the launches in the low-ABV and no-alcohol space. (Why are there so many spiked seltzers?) But that didn’t deter Dee Charlemagne, co-founder of Avec, the fizzy mixers you can drink straight up or in a cocktail or mocktail. The brand launched early in the pandemic and has found a devoted audience for its modern flavors, ingredients, and low-to-no-sugar stance. Dee joins host Kerry Diamond to talk about entrepreneurship, funding, Starbucks super fans, and the future of Avec.

    Heart Of Dinner’s Yin Chang And Moonlynn Tsai

    Heart Of Dinner’s Yin Chang And Moonlynn Tsai

    Actor and storyteller Yin Chang and restaurateur Moonlynn Tsai met over a meal, fell in love at Burning Man (yes, they share that story), and put their personal lives on hold to care for elders in New York’s Chinatown with nutritious, culturally appropriate meals. At the start of the pandemic, the two realized the elder community needed help, so they stepped forward, bringing their friends and colleagues along in support of the cause and creating Heart of Dinner in the process. The violence directed toward the AAPI community over the past few years has only intensified their desire to make a difference. Yin and Moonlyn stopped by Radio Cherry Bombe to share their story with host Kerry Diamond. Learn about the work Heart of Dinner is doing today and what you can do to help.

    Three food world dynamos got together for a fireside chat at this year’s sold-out Cherry Bombe Jubilee conference, held in New York City this past April. Hetty McKinnon of Peddler Journal and "To Asia, With Love" moderated a conversation with Sana Javeri Kadri of Diaspora Co. and Zoe Adjonyoh of "Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen" and the James Beard Foundation on a wide range of topics, from “diasporic angst” to growth and failure. “If you don’t push yourself out of your comfort zone, where’s the grace going to happen?” asked Zoe. Don’t miss their thoughtful conversation.

    Their talk was introduced by Jannell Lo, the chef and creator of the #DumptheHate AAPI anti-violence campaign and My BF is GF.
