“I think the funny thing in food is that there are so many women. There’s just been this outside focus on women having to be the chef and I think if you step back for a minute there are so many women doing interesting things.” [13:51]
“One thing we’re definitely trying to do at Cherry Bombe is shine the spotlight on all the different women in this industry. You don’t have to be the chef to be making a contribution and an impact on this industry.” [14:17]

“We just started doing chocolate and vanilla vegan ice cream and I was pretty excited when I came across a vegan so I dragged him [Greg] into the store and got him to try it and we got to talking about music and made a very loose plan to jam.” [41:19]
