One of our favorite food magazines is back and just in time for Thanksgiving. This baking-themed issue of Cherry Bombe is filled with festive recipes, from a “blushing apple pie” by Brooklyn pie shop Four & Twenty Blackbirds to perfectly mashed sweet potatoes from a dinner party, above, hosted by Gagosian Gallery’s Sarah Hoover (a.k.a. Mrs. Tom Sachs). The biannual magazine — devoted to women, style and sustenance — also features a charming interview with the legendary Alice Waters and shares the recipe for the madeleines served at Hermès’ headquarters. If that’s not enough to sate your appetite for all things Cherry Bombe, take note: co-founders Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu just announced their first-ever food conference, taking place in New York City on March 9th, 2014.
In 2009, New York-based Danielle Chang founded the popular Asian food festival LuckyRice, whose culinary council includes chef superstars Masaharu Morimoto, José Andrés, Anita Lo, Eric Ripert, Jean-Georges Vongerichten and David Chang. She’s since expanded nationwide, with the most recent event in Miami last week. Not bad for someone who’s worked pretty much everywhere — publishing, banking, fashion — except in the food industry. Here, wearing Tory’s Lainey dress, Danielle shares her advice on building a business and talks holidays in Taiwan.Read More

And be sure to save room for dessert…

From a star on the Walk of Fame to an Oscar on your mantelpiece, there are many signs of having “arrived” in Hollywood, but as far as any sushi devotee is concerned, there’s nothing quite like having a roll named after you at Hamasaku on Santa Monica Boulevard. The menu is filled with plates dedicated to the restaurant’s bold-faced patrons — the spicy tuna Charlize Theron, the Sarah Michelle Gellar (with jalapeño pearls) and Christina Applegate’s baked salmon nigiri. In celebration of our Food Issue this week, chef Yoya Takahashi created a special roll in honor of a certain sushi-loving designer who always visits when she’s in town…
L.A. restaurateur Suzanne Goin, the mastermind behind a.o.c., Lucques, Tavern and The Hungry Cat (which she runs with her husband), is known for taking seasonal staples and presenting them in fresh, flavorful and unexpected ways. Think soft-shell crab with green romesco and cherry tomato, chickpea soup with pecorino and roasted peach with burrata. Here, the celebrated chef, wearing Tory’s Thea dress and whose new cookbook recently debuted, gives us the scoop on her hometown — from where to get the best martini to where she eats on her nights off.Read More
Chilly weather calls for a little chocolate indulgence — and in New York, these two are culinary must-haves. There’s City Bakery’s hot chocolate, famous for its thick, melted bar texture and homemade marshmallow topping. Add a dense, gooey Levain Bakery chocolate chip cookie — hockey puck-sized and the subject of pilgrimages uptown — and that cozy craving will be more than satisfied.

“For Pre-Fall 2014, we turned to photographer Gertrud Arndt, one of the few female artists to come out of the Bauhaus movement. We were inspired by the effortlessness of her self-portraits as well as the era’s streamlined mood and bold graphics — clean shapes, strong tailoring, stripes, polka dots…. Accessories, meanwhile, include a nod to Gertrud herself: our version of the camera bag.” — Tory
Before Bon Appétit, before Saveur, before Food & Wine, there was Gourmet magazine. It’s the original foodie bible, the first to launch in the U.S. back in 1941. Month after month, the publication brought its readers mouthwatering recipes, beautiful imagery and now-iconic essays (such as David Foster Wallace’s Consider the Lobster) — but it also went beyond that, covering travel and all things, as the tagline went, “good living.” For seven decades, with contributors as wide-ranging as James Beard and Anita Loos, Gourmet inspired generations of devotees — and delivered a page-turning experience as dreamy as the cover here.
