Cherry Bombe Issue Nº 21: 10th Anniversary Issue: Melissa King


Meet our Issue 21 cover star, Melissa King! Melissa is the Top Chef All-Stars winner and star of the National Geographic show Tasting Wild. Throughout her career, Melissa has combined her passion for food, fashion, and far-flung travel, and she’s redefining what it means to be a chef. 

In our exclusive portfolio on Melissa, you’ll find new photos by Jennifer Livingston, an interview by Cherry Bombe founder Kerry Diamond, and a special recipe from Melissa. 

You’ll also find photographs and an interview with our other cover stars, the trio behind NYC’s King & Jupiter restaurants—Annie Shi, Jess Shadbolt, and Clare de Boer. 

Also in this issue: A Jennifer Livingston portfolio celebrating her 10 years of covers for Cherry Bombe; She’s My Cherry Pie host Jessie Sheehan; The Future Of Food Is You host Abena Anim-Somuah; Top Chef’s Gail Simmons; a cake recipe excerpt from baker Loria Stern’s first cookbook, and more. 

Please note, while we have two different covers for Issue 21, the inside is exactly the same.
