Team OpenTable spent the weekend as sponsors of the 4th annual Cherry Bombe Jubilee, two days of networking, conversation, and celebration among some of the coolest, most successful, and most inspiring women in the world of food. Throughout the course of the Jubilee we had the honour and privilege of hearing from leaders like chefs Stephanie Izard, Barbara Lynch, and Elisabeth Prueitt, in addition to renowned scholars, activists, and bloggers.
What makes the Jubilee so special is that it’s all about learning, growing, and lifting each other up. Time and time again we were humbled to hear stories of challenges, failures, disappointments, and new beginnings – the highs, the lows, and everything in between. By sharing openly and honestly and being willing to be vulnerable, we all got a little bit smarter and stronger. Old adages were challenged and turned on their heads; outdated notions and expectations were thrown out.
Here, we have a few takeaways from an important, empowering day and truly awe-inspiring group.
