CHERRY BOMBE 100:
Home Cook Heroes
“I really didn’t know how to cook anything,” swears Deb Perelman, the wildly popular founder of the website Smitten Kitchen. That’s not a humble brag. For all her success, Deb remains remarkably modest and low key. She started off as a self-taught home cook and photographer and went on to create one of the most popular food blogs around. She’s also a mom and the author of two best-selling cookbooks, Smitten Kitchen Every Day: Triumphant and Unfussy New Favorites and The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook: Recipes and Wisdom from an Obsessive Home Cook.
