Ugh. Even that question stresses us out! On today’s show, we talk to two women who tackled their stress-related health issues by taking matters into their own hands. First up, Katrine van Wyk, wellness coach and author of the new book, Super Powders: Adaptogenic Herbs and Mushrooms for Energy, Beauty, Mood, and Well-Being. Katrine was feeling run down all the time when a wellness practitioner introduced her to the world of adaptogens. Katrine joins us to explain what an adaptogen is and discusses some of the most popular ones, from reishi to maca to ashwagandha, and how you can incorporate them into your life. Our second guest is entrepreneur Hannah Habes, the founder of Matchaful, a Brooklyn-based company specializing in organic matcha from Japan. Hannah was stressed and unhealthy and losing her hair when a friend introduced her to matcha and changed her life. Whether you’re a fan of this magical green beverage or a matcha newbie, tune to learn more.

Are you ready? Today’s one of those rare episodes of Radio Cherry Bombe where we interview… a guy! But not any guy. It’s Jamie Oliver, philanthropist, dad, and one of the world’s most recognizable chefs. We couldn’t pass up the chance to speak with Jamie about his work fighting childhood obesity, his female mentors, and his wildly practical new book, Five Ingredients: Quick & Easy Food. Whether you’re a seasoned home cook looking for some inspiration, a kitchen newbie, or just a Jamie Oliver fan, you’ll love it.
Who are the two legendary chefs Jamie credits with kickstarting his career? “Anything good I’ve ever done, I wouldn’t have done without them,” he tells host Kerry Diamond. “I hear them on a daily basis in my head.” Tune in to find out.
Also on today’s show, Kerry pays tribute to her late Aunt Olive and her all-red kitchen.

“When people ask me what I do for a living, I tell them I’m a resource,” says Sophia Roe, the wellness advocate, personal chef, and newest Cherry Bombe cover girl who joins us for today’s show. Sophia, who has done a lot of living in her 30 years, shares the challenges that have shaped her and how she faces adversity head-on. We talk everything from resolutions to stress solutions to her favorite pantry items. If you’re looking to reset, restart, or re-evaluate, we have you covered. “All that I’ve been through,” she says. “I’m still here. I’m still Soph.”
It’s our final episode of 2018! We won’t go into the long story of how we lost—and found—these interviews, but we’re happy to share them with you because they represent two very different facets of the food world. First up, Jen Agg, the Toronto restaurateur who penned the autobiography titled I Hear She’s a Real Bitch. Jen’s a fantastic writer and she’s always fighting for the industry to be a better place for women—and for everyone. Jen joined us in April and discusses the #MeToo movement, her book, her businesses, and more. In the second half of the show, Christene Barberich joins us. Co-founder and global editor in chief of Refinery29, Christene worked at the legendary Gourmet magazine and shares how she learned to be an editor and what it takes to make a bulletproof recipe.
