If you don't already subscribe to both of these publications, you're missing out (and yes, I did end this last sentence with a preposition).
Cherry Bombe, a bi-annual journal -now on their second issue, is best described on their kickstarter profile, from which they raised over $40,000.00 in just 21 days. The brainchild of Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu, "Cherry Bombe is a beautifully designed, biannual indie magazine that celebrates women and food—those who grow it, make it, serve it, study it, enjoy it and everything in between. It is about sustenance and style and the things that nourish the mind, the eye and, of course, the stomach. Cherry Bombe features a variety of cultures, cuisines and voices—chefs and servers, food stylists and scientists, culinary icons and up-and-coming entrepreneurs—as documented by some of the most interesting food and fashion writers and photographers around.
Almost all of the subjects and contributors are women."
This is absolute truth. I have devoured this issue, many times over, and I'm already starving for the next. Beautifully written, photographed, and editorialized, Cherry Bombe will bring you both inspiration and joy for all things food.
Porter magazine, published every two months, is a, "fashion magazine for the stylish, intelligent woman of now. Combining the intimacy of the printed page with the instant gratification technology allows, PORTER delivers an authoritative global point of view and a bespoke curation of fashion, beauty, travel and culture in one luxurious glossy package, brought to life by an innovative digital edition."
Porter celebrates women in fashion, and women in the world. Already published in 60 countries, after just being launched at New York Fashion Week. Read more from Christy Binkley in a recent WSJ article here.
I brought this magazine to Palm Beach last week, and spent several hours reading, and re-reading the articles, as well as lusting after all of the gorgeous fashion spreads. I might have even done a bit of shopping. Porter brings to the table so much more than beautiful photo spreads, but with just enough to keep us shopping.
