Last week, I ventured into Omnivore Books as I was exploring Noe Valley (which is such an adorable section of SF), and walked out with a copy of Cherry Bombe Magazine.
Cherry Bombe is a magazine dedicated to all things woman and food–the pages are filled with profiles on amazing women who grow, cook, serve, and style food. While the magazine is about food (imagine profiles on culinary greats like Dorie Greenspan and Ruth Reichl scattered with amazing recipes like Pecorino Romano cake with candied tomatoes), the magazine has a strong bent towards style (see their amazing spread of custom candy created to look like bejeweled necklaces, bracelets, and rings).
I loved that the magazine had a strong food bent, but managed to work in topics like skincare, health, and handbags. Cherry Bombe also has an impressive amount of patisserie-related articles.
After just a few pages in, I immediately wanted to devour the whole magazine. The writing is smart, witty, and incredibly authentic. The design feels very feminine, but also clean and simple. I felt as if the writers were my best friends, and we were chatting over a cup of coffee.
I cannot wait for the next issue. Cherry Bombe is only a biannual magazine, so I will be waiting for the next Fall/Winter 2014 release. At $20 an issue, it certainly isn’t cheap, but there are NO advertisements whatsoever!
