Issue Nº 25: The Icons Issue (Jessica B. Harris)
Cherry Bombe


Meet Cherry Bombe's Issue 25 cover star: Dr. Jessica B. Harris!

Dr. Jessica is a revered professor, prolific author, and surprise streaming star. You might have spotted her on Netflix’s High on the Hog: How African American Cuisine Transformed America series, which is based on her book of the same name.

Other Issue 25 cover stars include:

Madhur is the award-winning actress and culinary superstar who has taught millions about the regional foods of India through her TV shows and 30+ cookbooks (and her beautiful memoir, Climbing the Mango Trees).

Grace Young is an award-winning cookbook author known as the Chinatown Champion and has been recognized for her work by The James Beard Foundation, Forbes 50 Over 50, The Julia Child Foundation, and others. ⁠

In our exclusive portfolios, you’ll find new photos by Jennifer Livingston (who's shot all of our covers) and interviews by Cherry Bombe founder Kerry Diamond. We are honored to feature these three women and can't wait for you to learn more about them. 

A few other icons featured in this issue are: Italian food superstar Marcella Hazan, cookbook author Claudia Roden, pastry legend Claudia Fleming in convo with pastry chef Natasha Pickowicz, and La Caravelle's Rita Jammet interviewed by sommelier Victoria James. Plus, we go on a pastry crawl with budding fashion icon Abi Balingit of The Dusky Kitchen and have a beautiful story on cake artist From Lucie's wedding ceremonies (yes, plural!).
