    Let’s Eat! With Stanley Tucci And The New York Times’ Nikita Richardson

    Summer’s here and we hope that means good eats for you this season. On today’s show, two folks who want to help: writer/actor/producer Stanley Tucci and The New York Times Food & Cooking editor Nikita Richardson. Stanley joins us in the second part of the show to chat about his summer plans, his summer reading list, and the San Pellegrino "Summer like an Italian" sweepstakes. (Pro tip: enter!) At the start of the show, host Kerry Diamond catches up with Nikita to hear about her job at the Times and her restaurant newsletter, Where To Eat: New York City. Nikita shares a few faves, her advice for snagging restaurant reservations, and how she tries to have a work-life balance.

    This episode is supported by Costa Brazil, a line of skincare and aroma for the body, the spirit, and the earth founded by Francisco Costa. Visit livecostabrazil.com for more.

    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.

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.

Love Cherry Bombe! Disappointed by Meta Eva Chen

I love Cherry Bombe and am usually so impressed by the guests and compelling interviews. Very lame to interview Eva Chen, who has been complicit to Instagram/FB/Meta poisoning our teen girls among other malices. LEAVE Mark Z., Eva! Working for Meta is tres uncool and not fashion.
