Alison Roman is a cook, writer, author, and columnist for the New York Times food section and for Bon Appétit.
Two of our favorite cookbook authors, Alison Roman of Dining In and Nothing Fancy, and Aran Goyoaga of Cannelle et Vanille: Nourishing, Gluten-Free Recipes for Every Meal and Mood, sat down to chat for the final keynote conversation at the Cherry Bombe Jubilee Conference in Seattle this past November. Alison and Aran talk about the freelance hustle, California vibes, the cookbook creation process, and their least favorite word. (Spoiler alert: it’s “influencer.”). Don’t miss an engaging exchange between these two special members of the Bombesquad. Plus, Radio Cherry Bombe Producer Jess Zeidman tells us why she thinks the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation is the bombe!

Alison Roman, NY Times food writer, joins us along with panelists Maeve Higgins, Tom Bodett, and Helen Hong.
Alison Roman’s bestselling books aren’t about entertaining. They’re “having people over” books, as she explains. So, what better way to celebrate the release of her new book Nothing Fancy than by stopping by her Brooklyn apartment for a chat. She and host Kerry Diamond talk about what’s in her pantry, what’s in her future, and what’s on her mind. Get your tinned fish, chickpeas, and natural wine and get ready. Stay tuned to hear who writer Ashley Elizabeth of Sweet Pea Lifestyle in Asheville, North Carolina, thinks is the bombe!Thank you to Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Schools and Emmi Cheese from Switzerland for supporting our show.
