After catching up with Kerry Diamond over lunch on New Year’s Day, I felt it was time to run an updated post on my dear friend, and one of KiC’s earliest profiles. While VP of PR for Coach, Kerry and her boyfriend, chef Robert Newton, opened three restaurants in Brooklyn, Seersucker, Smith Canteen, and my favorite, Nightingale 9. If this wasn’t enough to keep her busy, Kerry also launched, with friend Claudia Wu, the indy foodie mag, Cherry Bombe.
Today, Kerry is solely focused on the restaurants and Cherry Bombe. The magazine’s second issue, which celebrates baking, was published this winter. Chock-full of so many stories and interviews, there is enough content to fill three conventional magazines. My favorite piece is by the writer, and beauty director of W, Jane Larkworthy. Jane shares memories of her mother’s love of cooking and updates her favorite childhood recipes with organic ingredients. I have actually been meaning to profile Jane for a while as I am a huge fan of her page in W.
Over lunch Kerry and I reminisced about our days at Harper’s Bazaar, I congratulated her on being profiled in Vogue, and we talked about how lucky and happy we both are doing our own thing. A great way to start the new year.On My Mind, People
