It’s the first-ever cookbook from the team behind Cherry Bombe, the hit indie magazine about women and food, and the Radio Cherry Bombe podcast. Inside are 100+ recipes from some of the most interesting chefs, bakers, food stylists, pastry chefs, and creatives on the food scene today, including:

Jeni Britton Bauer, founder of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
Melissa Clark, New York Times columnist and cookbook author
Amanda Cohen, chef/owner of Dirt Candy
Angela Dimayuga, executive chef of Mission Chinese Food
Melissa & Emily Elsen, founders of Four & Twenty Blackbirds
Karlie Kloss, supermodel and cookie entrepreneur

Chrissy Teigen, supermodel and bestselling cookbook author
Christina Tosi, chef and founder of Milk Bar
Joy Wilson, of Joy the Baker

The Cherry Bombe team asked these women and others for their most meaningful recipes. The result is a beautifully styled and photographed collection that you will turn to again and again in the kitchen.


"Your kitchen shelf needs a hard copy of this bubblegum-pink book fresh off the press." —Vogue

"The cookbook is as fun, surprising, diverse, and drop-dead beautiful as the contributors it features. Scratch-made manicotti, crab cakes with corn salsa, and classic yellow cake with chocolate frosting are, like everything in this book, totally delicious, eclectic home-runs." —Goop

"A beautifully photographed compendium of modern recipes from women in the food world. Overall this eye-catching and spirited volume celebrates culinary diversity while retaining a cohesive feel." —Publisher's Weekly
