On Sunday, March 30, the High Line Hotel in Manhattan will host the Cherry Bombe Jubilee conference, a full day celebration of women in the culinary world. Established chefs, journalists, and newcomers alike will speak during the conference on a variety of subjects, including food politics, building careers in food, and business matters.

Although more guests will be announced in weeks to come, several notable guests have already been named, including Ruth Reichl, April Bloomfield, Gabrielle Hamilton, Christina Tosi, Marion Nestle, Elettra Wiedemann, and many others.

The day-long event will include talks, panels, presentations, and videos from women in all aspects of the food industry.

“We’re honored that such an amazing, accomplished group of women are taking part in Jubilee," announced Kerry Diamond, Cherry Bombe's editorial director. "It’s the first time many of them will be in the same room together, so we’re excited about the outcome. The participants and attendees will have an opportunity to forge new relationships and make connections, which is incredibly meaningful because having a strong network means everything in this industry.”

Tickets are $200 and will go on sale Wednesday, Feb. 19 to Cherry Bombe subscribers and contributors, and on Thursday, Feb. 20 to the general public. Further food, drink, and scheduling details will be announced soon.

On my bookshelf – Cherry Bombe

What could be more perfect than a magazine dedicated to women and food? Not much in my opinion. And Cherry Bombe does just that, celebrating women involved in the food industry, as well as championing beautiful aesthetics and foodie style. I’m a big fan (see previous blog posts here and here)!

It’s really not your typical women’s magazine, both in style and substance. Nothing lowbrow whatsoever, just pure inspiration, beauty and fantastically put together features, printed on lovely paper. You’ll want to read each issue, cover to cover. I was really taken with this feature (see pic below) on Dorie Greenspan, a self-taught baker who has cooked alongside the likes of Julia Child. It’s a great story, and Dorie’s honesty really comes across in the interview.

I absolutely love the illustrations which accompany her Parisian macarons recipe too – perfection!

If I lived in New York, I would have loved to go to the inaugural Cherry’s Jubilee event which brought together women (and men) working in the food industry at a one-day event, featuring inspirational talks, workshops and of course, catering, supplied by local brands run by women! Who knows, maybe I’ll get to attend in the future.

Cherry Bombe is only printed twice a year, which doesn’t seem like much, but I think makes it something special you want to savour and keep, rather than throw away after an hour. Despite this, Cherry Bombe has developed a strong online presence so you can get your fix in between issues – you can follow them on Instagram to get an insight into the aesthetics it’s guided by. You can find them on Facebook and Twitter too, where they post lots of interesting stuff!

If you like what you see, take a look at their website for details of international stockists (they’re not currently shipping globally, but hope to soon) – you won’t be disappointed.

Giveaway alert!

Note this giveaway has now closed – the winner will be announced shortly.

Simply put, Cherry Bombe is one of the most beautiful print publications out there, and for one lucky reader a copy of their Autumn (Fall/Winter!) issue could be yours.

For your chance to win, leave a comment here on my blog (bonus points if you spread the word via your own blog, Twitter, Instagram or Facebook – include the hashtag #RKCherrybombeComp), telling me who or what inspires you. I’ll be drawing a winner on Wednesday 1st October, so you have until Tuesday 30th September to enter. Remember to include your email address, so shipping can be arranged. Good luck!

Lineup Announced for Cherry Bombe's Jubilee Conference

On March 30, the team behind biannual food magazine Cherry Bombe will host the first-ever Jubliee conference at The High Line Hotel. The event will be a "celebration of women and food," with "talks, panels, presentations and videos" featuring chefs and members of the food media. The initial lineup includes April Bloomfield, Gabrielle Hamilton, Amanda Cohen, Anita Lo, Kristen Kish, Ruth Reichl, Charlotte Druckman, Christine Muhlke, Suzanne Goin, and Katie Burton. More speakers will be added to the lineup in the coming weeks. The event will also feature food and drinks, although the lineup has not been announced yet.

Back in November, Cherry Bombe editorial director/restaurateur Kerry Diamond told Eater that the team had been planning this event "from day one," but the TIME magazine debacle and editor Howard Chua-Eoan's "insulting interview" made them want to move up the date. Tickets will go on sale this Thursday. Head over to Eater National for all the details.

Why She&aposs a Boss

In the seven years since she opened Sqirl in L.A.’s Virgil Village neighborhood, Jessica Koslow has become a food-media darling. She’s graced magazine spreads, modeled for J. Crew, hosted restaurant pop-ups, and conquered the world with her jarred jams. Her cookbook, Everything I Want to Eat, includes, well, everything you want to eat!

Her Story

“I started my career at Bacchanalia in Atlanta, where Anne Quatrano runs the show, so my first mentor was a woman who’s a powerhouse in the food industry. I also grew up with a mom who’s a successful doctor, has two offices, and still works six days a week. She taught me not to see gender as something that stands in the way. It didn’t matter if I was a man or a woman—I could do whatever I want. In the kitchen at Sqirl, we now have three women and three men, and our pastry team is all female. Everyone calls me ‘Mom,’ which is really funny, but I think there’s a truth to it. Mentorship is kind of maternal: listening, being present, and providing support.”

Her Mission

“There can be a bit of a bro culture at times. At a lot of food events, I end up being the only woman there. It’s hard to get into the mix, because it’s the same guys hanging out, doing the same events. But I just had chef Tatiana Levha’s food at Le Servan in Paris, and she is magic. Those are the women who, when you find them, you’re like, Let’s lift up all of these women. Will Best Chef–type awards be 50-50 with five women nominated for every five guys? Probably not. But should there be a female in there? Absolutely.”

Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu: Be the Bombe in the Kitchen


A certain toddler I know enjoys food like nothing I’ve seen before. Give him a cupcake and he’ll hold it, look at it and really take it all in before his first bite. Then he’ll discuss how delicious said cupcake is. As I wolfed down a spicy-chicken sandwich in the drive-thru lane today, I thought about that little boy, and I was touched by some inspiration. Let’s put the fun and fascination back into our meals. Schedule one leisurely meal—think Sundays at Granny’s house—and choose a recipe, follow each step, have guests set the table, and nibble and chat at your own enjoyable pace.


Venezuelan chef Maria Fernanda Di Giacobbe knows a little something about savoring the delicious things in life. Maria, an expert chocolatier, opened a school to train women and farmers how to make chocolate with local cacao, all with the goal of empowering Venezuelan people and boosting the local economy. With that, she earned recognition for improving communities through gastronomy and was awarded the first-ever Basque Culinary World Prize, drawing international attention and praise.

WOMEN TO WATCH: Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu, Co-founders of Cherry Bombe

If you’ve ever been to a holiday dinner hosted by a female relative, you’ve probably noticed that she is the one basting, searing and mincing. The table’s set, but she barely has a chance to sit down and partake in the meal. Female cooks of the past have been far too courteous but finally, women are making the time to enjoy the dang meal.

Today’s Women to Watch are applauding ladies for our remarkable talents with all things culinary. Cherry Bombe, a biannual indie magazine founded by Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu, celebrates women and food to the extreme, and readers are gobbling up the content in droves. The project found its footing following a wonderfully successful Kickstarter campaign. Now, more than 10 issues later, the dynamic mag continues to be adored by readers, celebs and ultimate foodies alike.

Nearly all of Cherry Bombe’s contributors are women, and featured cover gals have included some of the most prominent and up-and-coming stars of the food world, from the one-and-only Martha Stewart to Top Chefwinner Kristen Kish and pastry chef extraordinaire Christina Tosi. Each issue of Cherry Bombe includes in-depth features, profiles, recipes and a whole lot of downright mouthwatering photos.

These gals have long had a passion for the culinary industry and talent in the world of publication, with Kerry having opened a couple restaurants and a coffee shop, and Claudia having launched an indie publication and a graphic-design firm, so it’s no wonder their Cherry Bombe mag is such a smashing success.

Since its launch, the company has exploded into other mediums, including a wildly popular radio show, which gives listeners an all-access pass to some of the world’s most elite female chefs, and a crave-worthy cookbook that was dubbed by one industry pub as “for badass women in the kitchen, by badass women in the kitchen.”

Kerry and Claudia know part of what makes a good meal with good friends so soul-enriching is that in-person engagement. They follow through on that idea with their annual Cherry Bombe Jubilee, a daylong conference featuring speakers, chefs, bakers and winemakers that’s dedicated to great conversations, making connections and, of course, lots of tempting edible delights.


As always, we must say farewell with a quote. Today, let’s get inspired by Cherry Bombe fave Martha Stewart:

“Once you realize that you have identified a passion, invest in yourself. Figure out what you need to know, what kind of experience and expertise you need to develop to do the things that you feel in your heart you will enjoy and that will sustain you both mentally and economically.”

This is Melinda Garvey signing off until next time. Remember, ladies, empowered women empower other women. Share On the Dot so more women can have a voice. Thanks for getting ready with us.

Cherry Bombe Jubilee

Busy week on the horizon. On Wednesday, we’re off to New Orleans to participate in Hogs for the Cause, a barbecue and music event with proceeds going to families fighting pediatric brain cancer. If you’re in the New Orleans area, please come by and say hello!

On Sunday, I’ll be in Manhattan for the second-ever Cherry Bombe Jubilee. Cherry Bombe is the biannual food magazine created by Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu, and they’ve organized a sold-out, one-day conference with a fascinating line-up of food world rockstars.

Below are a few photos from last year’s Jubilee. The soaring, light-filled refectory at the High Line Hotel was buzzing with 300 women who traveled from all over the country. From Alice Waters and Ruth Reichl to Barbara Lynch and April Bloomfield, chefs, food media, and PR professionals, the room was filled with women who are creating the current culinary landscape.

Le Creuset was one of the sponsors who made the day possible. Here’s their gorgeous, new, matte-finish collection.

You can read some of the best quips and quotes from last year’s event here and here. The panels on being a chef and a working mother and the relationship between chefs and the media were especially thought provoking.

The day was strategically designed with several long breaks and lunch so there was plenty of time to network, chat, and meet new people while weaving through three connected rooms filled with delicious bites of food.

Top: Four and Twenty Blackbirds lemon chess and salted honey pies.
Bottom: Kerry and I are toasting with a special Cherry Bombe macaron created especially for the event.

Looking forward to this year’s Jubilee!

It’s Here It’s Here It’s Here: Tickets for Cherry Bombe’s Second Jubilee On Sale Now

This is like, exactly who you’d want at your dream dinner party. Or Galentine’s Day brunch. (Was that a coincidence to release tickets to Cherry Bombe Jubilee on Galentine’s Day?)

Our current obsession Cherry Bombe magazine announced the line-up for the second annual Jubilee food conference, in which lady chefs and awesome ladies in general gather to talk about food and issues. Last year’s conference had stellar speakers like Christina Tosi, April Bloomfield, Kristin Kish, Gabrielle Hamilton, and Ruth Reichl this year, the speaker lineup is no short of awesome either. Joining Bloomfield in her second go-round of speaking? Dominique Crenn (Michelin-starred bad-a**), Ina Garten (Taylor Swift’s bestie and therefore our de facto bestie), Vivian Howard (star of A Chef’s Life aka “chef we most want to be like”), Padma Lakshmi (Top Chef judge and object of Andy Cohen’s affections), and “other surprises.”

It’s a cool mix of women too: beyond the recognizable lady chef names, there are up-and-comers (Amanda Chantal Bacon of Moon Juice, Elise Kornack of Take Root, Iliana Regan of Elizabeth and Bunny), restauranteurs (Martha Hoover of Indianapolis’ Patachou restaurant group), nonprofit founders (Lauren Bush Lauren of FEED), authors (Andie Mitchell, It Was Me All Along, Danielle Walker, Against All Grain), and journalists (Jordana Rothman). Whew! Get us on board, pretty please.

And if you can’t afford tickets this Galentine’s Day, the conference will be broadcast by Heritage Radio Network for later listening. We say “treat yo’self” (how many more Parks and Recreation references can we fit into one story?) and get it — it’s the empowerment event of the year.

Alison Roman apologizes again to Chrissy Teigen for her 'tone deaf remarks'

Food columnist Alison Roman has apologized — again — to model-turned-cookbook author Chrissy Teigen and organization guru Marie Kondo for her critical comments about both women which kicked off a firestorm of controversy on Twitter over the weekend.

The drama began after a recent interview Roman gave to The New Consumer in which she referred to Teigen's cooking-themed website, Cravings by Chrissy Teigen, as a "content farm," which "horrifies" her.

"Like, what Chrissy Teigen has done is so crazy to me," Roman, 34, said in the interview. "She had a successful cookbook. And then it was like: Boom, line at Target. Boom, now she has an Instagram page that has over a million followers where it’s just, like, people running a content farm for her. That horrifies me and it’s not something that I ever want to do. I don’t aspire to that. But like, who’s laughing now? Because she’s making a ton of (expletive) money."

Teigen, also 34, responded to the interview by tweeting out a message on Friday saying she was hit hard by Roman's swipe.

this is a huge bummer and hit me hard. I have made her recipes for years now, bought the cookbooks, supported her on social and praised her in interviews. I even signed on to executive produce the very show she talks about doing in this article. https://t.co/9xrvQBInAp

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 8, 2020

"this is a huge bummer and hit me hard," Teigen posted. "I have made her recipes for years now, bought the cookbooks, supported her on social and praised her in interviews. I even signed on to executive produce the very show she talks about doing in this article."

Many of Teigen's followers replied to her with messages of support.

"Your trajectory isn't remotely as quick as she makes it out to be. Don't stress, Chrissy," commented one follower.

"Your products are quality, so is your vibe. Be you everyday, that’s why we show up for you!" wrote another.

And although Teigen was buoyed by the kind words of her followers, she still felt the need to defend her work, saying that she started Cravings so she could have something that was truly her own, apart from the success of her multi award-winning husband, John Legend.

I started cravings because I wanted something for myself. I wanted something John didn't buy, I wanted something to do that calmed me, made me happy and made others happy, too. Cravings isn't a "machine" or "farmed content" - it's me and 2 other women.

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 8, 2020

Legend also tweeted his support, writing, "I love what you are building. I love that it comes straight from your heart and your brilliant, creative mind. I'm so proud of you"

The model and mom of two went on to say that she was "so bummed out by the words of a fellow food-lover" and that she "had no idea I was perceived that way, especially by her."

She also defended Marie Kondo who Roman, a New York Times food columnist, called a sellout for her decision to lend her name to a product line.

I don't think I've ever been so bummed out by the words of a fellow food-lover. I just had no idea I was perceived that way, by her especially. And Marie, too. Marie is awesome.

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 8, 2020

Cherry Bombe magazine, which showcases women in the food industry (and has had both Teigen and Roman as cover stars), shared a statement on Instagram.

"Women calling other women sell-outs and bitches for their hard-earned accomplishments is not acceptable. White women calling women of color sell-outs and bitches for their hard-earned accomplishments is not acceptable.

"There’s no excuse in 2020 for not knowing better, especially when you’re a gatekeeper or celebrated individual in the food world. Those in a privileged position need to check their privilege and humility on a regular basis," the post continued.

On Friday, Roman took to Twitter to explain the context of her comments.

I want to clarify, I am not coming for anyone who's successful, especially not women. I was trying to clarify that my business model does not include a product line, which work very well for some, but I don't see working for me.

— alison roman (@alisoneroman) May 8, 2020

"I want to clarify, I am not coming for anyone who's successful, especially not women. I was trying to clarify that my business model does not include a product line, which work very well for some, but I don't see working for me," she wrote.

Roman posted again late Friday, this time to issue Teigen an apology, saying she had also sent the star an email. She called her comments "flippant" and "careless."

Hi @chrissyteigen! I sent an email but also wanted to say here that I’m genuinely sorry I caused you pain with what I said. I shouldn’t have used you /your business (or Marie’s!) as an example to show what I wanted for my own career- it was flippant, careless and I’m so sorry

— alison roman (@alisoneroman) May 9, 2020

"Hi @chrissyteigen!" Roman posted. "I sent an email but also wanted to say here that I’m genuinely sorry I caused you pain with what I said. I shouldn’t have used you /your business (or Marie’s!) as an example to show what I wanted for my own career- it was flippant, careless and I’m so sorry," wrote the "Nothing Fancy" author.

Roman went on to say that it's not her "thing" to take down other women and thinks if they ever had the chance to meet, she and Teigen would hit it off.

Being a woman who takes down other women is absolutely not my thing and don’t think it’s yours, either (I obviously failed to effectively communicate that). I hope we can meet one day, I think we’d probably get along.

— alison roman (@alisoneroman) May 9, 2020

In the statement from Cherry Bombe, the magazine also said, "If you’re not using your platform today to lift others, you don’t deserve the platform. We were disappointed yesterday to read Alison Roman’s comments about Chrissy Teigen, Marie Kondo, and content creators. Alison has been a good friend to Cherry Bombe, as has Chrissy, and we have celebrated both of their accomplishments on our covers and beyond. We hope Alison takes the time to understand why her comments were offensive to so many and issue genuine apologies to both women."

In the meantime, Teigen had her own solution to the situation.

anyhow. now that that's out there, I guess we should probably unfollow each other @alisoneroman

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 8, 2020

"anyhow. now that that's out there, I guess we should probably unfollow each other @alisoneroman," wrote the star.

On Monday, Roman issued another lengthy apology to both Teigen and Kondo on Twitter.

I’ve thought a lot this weekend about my interview and the things I said. I know this is a lengthy note (succinctness has never been my strong suit). I appreciate you taking the time to read. pic.twitter.com/3iGAyN3c9d

— alison roman (@alisoneroman) May 11, 2020

“I need to formally apologize to Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo,” she wrote. “I used their names disparagingly to try and distinguish myself, which I absolutely do not have an excuse for. It was stupid, careless and insensitive. I need to learn, and respect, the difference between being unfiltered and honest vs. uneducated and flippant. The burden is not on them (or anyone else) to teach me, and I’m deeply sorry that my learning came at Marie’s expense. They’ve worked extremely hard to get to where they are and both deserve better than my tone deaf remarks.”

She also apologized for attacking two women of color, something she had received a lot of criticism for on Twitter.

“The fact that it didn’t occur to me that I had singled out two Asian women is one hundred percent a function of my privilege (being blind to racial insensitivities is a discriminatory luxury),” Roman wrote. “I know that our culture frequently goes after women, especially women of color, and I’m ashamed to have contributed to that. I want to lift up and support women of color, my actions indicated the opposite.”

thank u for this, @alisoneroman. To be clear, it never once crossed my mind for u to apologize for what you genuinely thought! The comments stung, but they moreso stung because they came from u! It wasn’t my usual news break of some random person hating everything about me!

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 12, 2020

Soon after Roman shared her apology message on Twitter, Teigen responded with a series of tweets.

“thank u for this, @alisoneroman. To be clear, it never once crossed my mind for u to apologize for what you genuinely thought!” she wrote. “The comments stung, but they more so stung because they came from u! It wasn’t my usual news break of some random person hating everything about me!”

I don’t agree with the pile-on, ppl waiting with bated breath for apologies, deciding if that apology is good, the ppl who say u were right & never needed to in the first place - there are so many different types in this kind of situation & tbh, I just want it to be over

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 12, 2020

She added later in her Twitter thread that she still thinks Roman is “incredibly talented.”

“And in an industry that doesn’t really lend itself to supporting more than a handful of people at a time, I feel like all we have are each other!” she wrote, adding, “And honestly, for the past few days, every time I saw a shallot I wanted to cry, but I do appreciate this and hopefully we can all be better and learn from the dumb (stuff) we have all said and done.”

This story has been updated to include Alison Roman's second apology and Chrissy Teigen's response.

US general: As US scales back in Mideast, China may step in

As the United States scales back its military presence across the Middle East to focus on great power competition with China and Russia, it risks giving those two countries a chance to fill the gap and expand their influence around the Gulf, the top U.S. commander for the region said Sunday. While traveling through the Middle East over the past week, Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie, who heads U.S. Central Command, fielded a persistent question from the military and political leaders he met: Is the U.S. still committed to their country and the region, and what more support can they get.

Cherry Bombe to Launch Food Conference in March

Kerry Diamond and the team from Cherry Bombe magazine are planning a food conference in NYC on March 9, 2014 called Jubilee. Like the magazine, the conference will "celebrate women and food." Diamond, who operates Seersucker and Nightingale 9 when she's not working as the editorial director of the mag, says that the team had been thinking about organizing a 2015 conference "from day one," but the recent Time magazine "Gods of Food" debacle made them want to get this off the ground at an earlier date.

Diamond explains that Eater National's pie charts depicting the ratios of male chefs to female chefs at major food events were "the final straw." Ms. Diamond tells Eater National that the event will have "a large percentage of women, in terms of the attendees, the presenters, and the panelists." The venue and lineup will be announced in January, but for now, anyone that's interested in participating should contact the Jubilee team directly. Head over to Eater National for more details on the event.

FAB Aims to Empower Women in Food Like Never Before

“It’s like I predicted the future,” Randi Weinstein says with a light laugh. Has there ever been a better time for a workshop created by women, for women in the hospitality industry?

Weinstein wasn’t sure at first, until she picked up the phone and called 50 objective bystanders. “Nobody said I was crazy, and I was like, ‘Shit, should I call 50 more until somebody tells me I’m crazy?’”

For the former director of events of the Charleston Wine + Food Festival, the decision to create FAB, a two-day educational program aimed at women in foodservice, has been met with overwhelming fervor. In fact, she’s had to keep scaling back the agenda.

“My biggest problem was that I had more speakers than I had slots for, which I was like, ‘OK, I’ll bring 20 people. OK I’ll bring 23. OK I’ll bring 25. It was a good problem to have.”

FAB, which is set for June 11—13 at the College of Charleston in South Carolina, is unlike anything else out there, she says. While there are other female empowerment conferences, including Cherry Bombe’s Jubilee, which is built around food, there hasn’t been something this “totally unsexy” before. And Weinstein says that with the utmost affection.

This workshop is really about what it’s like to walk the coals in the restaurant industry as a woman. The programming is centered on education and the gritty details of the business, from real estate law to food waste to media outreach, technology, and more.

It’s split into two tracks: Fab 101 and Fab 202. The first is for women currently working in the hospitality industry who might be interested in owning their own business, and also for those who simply want to learn how to standout from the pack. Topics will cover hiring, writing business plans, and other foundational skills critical to getting started and keeping the doors open.

Fab 202 focuses on women who “find themselves as a business owner in a mostly male dominated industry,” according to the website. The content covers issues affecting business as well as tracking future trends. This is where themes like mentorship, labor laws, and some of the next-level tools will be discussed.

“What’s unbelievable is that all of the speakers are super pumped,” she says. “Mostly people get really excited to travel to other areas just to be part of some type of camaraderie of a food festival. But this is different because they’re part of this movement to be able to instill their knowledge and what it takes for other women to see them mature and grow and spread their wings.”

And the difference will be clear, Weinstein says, from the outset. “You’re getting a group of women who aren’t typically used to sitting down, sitting there for two whole days, listening to stuff that they’re going to walk away and be like, ‘Oh shit, I never really thought about that.’”

Weinstein says, in general, women in the industry get stuck in a corner and are left with little room to grow. She hopes FAB can cover a spectrum of topics to arm women with the confidence and know-how to branch out and dominate with confidence.

“I think a lot of people just rely on their one skill that they posses,” she says. “And then all of sudden it’s this voice in them, or other voices speaking to them, saying you should do this or you should do that. You’d be great at this or you’d be great at that. And all of sudden it starts becoming a reality. But they don’t know the first thing, whether it’s investors, whether it’s looking at real estate, whether it’s looking at PNL statements. Looking at labor laws, HR. And the cost of these things. We’re going to fix that.”

That isn’t to say this conference won’t be entertaining. The speaker lineup is stellar. Here it is:

  • Alice Cheng, founder and CEO of Culinary Agents.
  • Amanda Kludt, editor in chief of Eater
  • Angie Mosier, food writer, stylist, and photographer
  • Barbara Lynch, chef/owner of Barbara Lynch Gruppo
  • Camilla Marcus, co-founder TechTable
  • Carolyn Richmond, partner Fox Rothschild LLP
  • Carrie Morey, founder of Callie’s Biscuits and Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit
  • Dana Cowin, journalist (former editor in chief of Food & Wine)
  • Jenny Badman, copy director/writer, Blue Ion
  • Elizabeth Meltz, director of environmental health, Batali and Bastianich Hospitality Group
  • Helen Johannesen, partner in Helen’s Wines and Jon & Vinny’s, beverage director for Animal, Son of a Gun, Trois Mec, Petit Trois, and Kismet
  • Jennifer Cole, writer/editor
  • Jen Hidinger, co-founder of Staplehouse Restaurant in Atlanta
  • Kat Kinsman, author, senior food and drinks editor, Extra Crispy
  • Karalee Fallert, founding partner and co-owner in Charleston
  • Maneet Chauhan, chef and owner of Morph Hospitality Group
  • Marie Petulla, owner, Union Restaurant and Knead and Co. Pasta Bar + Market
  • Maureen Cushing, vice president of technology and processes, USHG
  • Missy Robbins, owner and head chef, Lilia
  • Molly Cherry, attorney, Nexsen Pruet, LLC
  • Nancy Cushman, founder/creator Cushman Concepts
  • Nancy Selzer, managing partner, Tarry Lodge in Port Chester
  • Pam Lewy, Mario Batali, LLC
  • Rosanne Martino, national coordinator, ROC United’s Colors Restaurants
  • Sam Appel, director of community and programming, Journee
  • Sarah Abell, executive vice president/partner, Baltz and Company
  • Sarah Robbins, Chief Hospitality Officer, 21C Museum Hotels
  • Susan Spikes, executive vice president of operations, Hill Country Barbecue Market, Hill Country Chicken, and Hill Country Live
  • Tara Berman, founder, managing partner, TaraPaige Group

Weinstein also imagines end-of-day stretches and yoga to shake out the day’s cobwebs. And then there will be a cocktail hour followed by intimate dinners where attendees can sign up to dine with one of the featured guests.

So yes, you can share wine with Barbara Lynch at the Charleston Grill if you like. The prices change based on the dinner you choose. There will also be curated salons, introspection, and conversations with panels of industry leaders.

Weinstein says she knows this year will be a bit of test run.

“The first time is always that learning curve,” she says. “Kind of what I did was I didn’t let people pick and choose the topics they would sit in on, So when you’re buying a ticket to the 101 or 202 you’re buying it for the full ride. I didn’t want people to sit there and say, ‘Oh my gosh, should I choose between business or should I choose between HR?’ I just felt that it was all so important that it would be hard to utilize those same speakers and then branch them out.”
