How do you save family recipes when your grandmother never writes them down? Anna Francese Gass tackles this culinary conundrum in her new cookbook, Heirloom Kitchen: Heritage Recipes and Family Stories from the Tables of Immigrant Women. Anna spent time cooking with matriarchs who immigrated to America and learned the secrets behind their greatest hits. The cookbook is based on Anna’s blog, which she launched after years of testing recipes for the likes of Martha Stewart and Food52. We talk everything from her mother’s meatballs (the best we’ve ever had) to getting stranded on a desert island with Oprah.

What does the Future of Food mean to you?


The Cherry Bombe team toured America last year to ask women in the food space this very question.

Check out this new Radio Cherry Bombe Miniseries to hear from members of the Bombesquad across the country about what they think the future has in store for them, the food world, and the planet.

We hope the Future of Food inspires you to think about your future.
