The biannual food magazine Cherry Bombe held its second-annual Jubilee conference yesterday in NYC. The magazine invited an impressive roster of female powerhouses in the culinary world to come share their wisdom.

Speakers at the conference included: The Spotted Pig and The Breslin chef April Bloomfield, Atelier Crenn chef Dominique Crenn, Food Network host Ina Garten, Chez Panisse owner Alice Waters, Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, food and drink writer Jordana Rothman, and more. The magazine’s cofounder, Kerry Diamond, wanted this year’s Jubilee to focus on helping women in the food and restaurant industry network and meet.
