Cherie recently curated a culinary series on regional Indian cuisine offered exclusively at the Stonewall Kitchen Cooking School in York, Maine.  She is the host of “Talking Food In Maine, Intimate Conversations” exploring Maine’s rich culinary scene at the historic Lincoln Theater in Damariscotta.

    To celebrate Maine’s bicentennial and gastronomic talent, Cherie launched Mumbai to Maine’s podcast with a signature series: Maine’s Bicentennial Food Podcast – a bi-weekly culinary podcast sponsored by Maine Magazine’s Eat Maine. Each episode showcases Maine’s most creative and accomplished culinary taste-makers, food innovators, cookbook authors and entrepreneurs.

     Cherie has been a long-time subscriber of MSMT and her daughter, Sophia, has acted in many MSMT shows.
