If the restaurant world was a baseball league and we had to pick our rookie of the year, Cherry Bombe’s money would be on Kia Damon. This young chef is mindful, stylish, and hilarious, and she cooks like a dream at her restaurant Lalito in Manhattan’s Chinatown. Tune in to hear what Harry Potter has to do with Kia’s career trajectory, her early days in Florida, and what icon Edna Lewis means to her.

Plus, Natalie Popkave of The Bee And The Baker tells us who she thinks is the Bombe!

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.

Thanks to Kerrygold for sponsoring our tour!
