On today’s THE FOOD SEEN, Kerry Diamond & Claudia Wu, the ladies behind Cherry Bombe, a magazine about women and food, premier No. 2: “The Baked Issue”, with vegan bakery owner Erin McKenna of Babycakes. Their first issue’s cover girl, Victoria Secret’s model and Momofuku Milk Bar cookie maker, Karlie Kloss, bookend a bunch of powerful females working in all walks of culinary life. From artists (food stylists, photographers, ceramicists …) to bloggers, writers and musicians. And of course chefs, like Prune’s Gabrielle Hamilton,Chez Panisse’s Alice Waters, and The Spotted Pig’s April Bloomfield. So, what is a woman’s place in the kitchen, if it’s in the kitchen at all? This program has been brought to you by Many Kitchens. Thanks to Cookies for today’s music.

“We do like white space. A lot of magazines don’t. They just try and cram as much onto the page as they can. Being 172 pages, we have that luxury of being white..” [36:45]
