    Black Lives Matter. Black Voices Matter.

    We’re not airing an episode of Radio Cherry Bombe today. Instead, we’d like you to take the time you spend listening to our show and seek out new voices, in particular food podcasts by Black women. Some suggestions: Afros + Knives by Tiffani Rozier, The Food Truck Scholar by Ariel Smith, the Pro Food Maker Podcast by Mercedes Gosby, A Hungry Society by Korsha Wilson, and Dinner for One by Sutanya Dacres. There are many, many others and we’ll be seeking them out and listening as well. If you know of other Black female-fueled food podcasts, please share them on social media and tag Cherry Bombe so we can learn and share as well.

    Top Chef Champ Kristen Kish Makes It Personal

    Top Chef Champ Kristen Kish Makes It Personal

    “I know that when I go back to ‘working normally,’ I will not live the same way that I used to,” said Kristen Kish, reflecting on the past few months. “I’ve learned an incredible amount… just by being still.” Kristen is the winner of Top Chef Season 10, author of Kristen Kish Cooking: Recipes and Techniques, and the executive chef at Arlo Grey in The Line Hotel in Austin, Texas. Radio Cherry Bombe host Kerry Diamond caught up with her to hear how she’s doing, what she’s cooking up, and her takeaways on Mental Health Awareness Month and Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, as both come to a close.

    From Stephen Colbert to Camembert: The Journey of a Cheese Board Queen

    Marissa Mullen loves cheese plates so much that she quit her job with Stephen Colbert and dedicated herself to sharing her enthusiasm for all things fromage with the world.

Marissa chats with host Kerry Diamond about her crazy journey, getting rejected by 20 cookbook publishers and dropped by her agent, and finding her place in the community of cheesemongers, cheesemakers, and cheese lovers. Tune in and maybe a cheese plate will save your life too.

    Baked Goods and Gratitude with Grandbaby Cakes

    Baked Goods and Gratitude with Grandbaby Cakes

    “Being in the present has totally changed so much of my perspective,” says Jocelyn Delk Adams, founder of the Grandbaby Cakes blog and author of the cookbook Grandbaby Cakes: Modern Recipes, Vintage Charm, Soulful Memories and several e-cookbooks. The busy entrepreneur has stayed focused through the current crisis by reminding herself what she’s thankful for, taking care of her young daughter, and tending to the business she started as a hobby back in 2012. Today, Jocelyn is known for her luscious layer cakes, foolproof poundcakes, and other updated comfort food classics, but it’s her business acumen as much as her baking ability that has kept her at the top of the blogging game.

    Inside the Smitten Kitchen with Deb Perelman

    Inside the Smitten Kitchen with Deb Perelman

    “When I see these perfect pantries, I’m like… ‘This isn’t how real people live,’” laughs Deb Perelman. “This is a real-life overstuffed kitchen.” Deb is the cook, writer, and photographer behind the much-loved Smitten Kitchen blog and the two companion cookbooks. Tune in to hear what this down-to-earth personality is up to and why she’s loving things cooked low and slow right now, from sweet potatoes to broccoli, why she’s not baking sourdough bread, and why you can never go wrong with Rice Krispie Treats (especially when they’re made with browned butter).

    Plus, Chicago-based vegan chef Sam Spoll tells us why she thinks Tanya Lozano, founder of Healthy Hood Chicago, is the Bombe!

    Thank you to our sponsors for supporting today’s episode: The wines of Rioja and, our newest sponsor, Red Clay Hot Sauce. You folks are the Bombe!

    Meet The Craftswomen

    “If you don’t see representation of someone who looks like you, it’s difficult to see yourself in that position,” said Emma Walker, the master blender responsible for Jane Walker by Johnnie Walker and a panelist at the Craftswomen event hosted by the spirits powerhouse Diageo earlier this year to celebrate the makers behind some of the world’s best spirits. We’re bringing you the panel, recorded live at the High Line Hotel in NYC earlier this year, as a special episode of Radio Cherry Bombe. The other spirits superstars you’ll hear from: Eboni Major, a whiskey blender and food scientist at Bulleit Frontier Whiskey; United States Bartenders Guild 2019 Bartender of the year Katie Renshaw; and Lynnette Marrero, co-founder of the Speed Rack bartending competition and a MasterClass instructor. Don’t miss this conversation about community, collaboration, and visibility.

    Thank you to Jane Walker by Johnnie Walker for supporting our show.

    And find out why Bombesquad member Meaghan Dorman, bar director for Dear Irving and Raines Law Room in NYC, thinks Kellie Thorn, beverage director of Hugh Acheson Restaurants in Atlanta, is the Bombe!

SO inspiring!

This podcast has saved me on so many occasions. Kerry asks such insightful questions and is so genuine in her approach to each interview. I look forward to each episode, and even though I am not in the food industry—it never fails to touch my heart with a sense of true belonging. Thank you for all that you do! Love love love it!

“Women prefer male fashion designers???” Really Kerry you should have called her out on that.

Favorite podcast!

This show never fails to inspire me! I love the mix of practical career advice and broader conversations about the politics of food.
