I cannot wait to spend Sunday morning delving in to my early copy of Cherry Bombe: The Cookbook, which is launching October 10th (and available for pre-order). When I interviewed Cherry Bombe co-founder Kerry Diamond months back (read her profile here) she discussed the best, and hardest part, about creating it.
“I have much respect for people who do cookbooks because I didn’t realize how hard they are. We asked 100 women in the Cherry Bombe universe to contribute a meaningful recipe–something they always make, or has a special story or was passed down by a family member. It wound up being more emotional than I thought. Food has become so trendy I think you forget how deep-down emotional food is. It’s tied to so many things–self-worth, self-image, family. Working on this book reminded me of that.”
The cookbook is full of the kind of recipes made for a Sunday cook like me, relatively simple and mostly healthy. There is nothing more pleasurable or deeply satisfying than sharing a meal with family and friends. I cannot wait to make this book part of that ritual.
