Salt Lake City–Traeger Grills, inventor of the original wood pellet grill, today announced that it has partnered with Amanda Haas, bringing her unique style and approach to cooking to the Traeger community. Ms. Haas brings over a decade of culinary expertise, including time spent overseeing recipe development and testing as Williams-Sonoma’s culinary director, as well as authoring several cookbooks.
“We’re always looking for partners that exemplify our company values, and when it comes to our value of bringing families together through food and cooking, Amanda was a perfect match,” said Jeremy Andrus, Traeger Grills CEO. “She has so much experience—with culinary development and cookbook writing—and the Traeger community stands to learn a lot from her deep knowledge. We’re looking forward to collaborating and expanding our brand to new audiences.”
Ms. Haas has hosted hundreds of cooking videos for Williams-Sonoma and spent more than a decade testing and developing recipes for over a dozen cookbooks. She is the author of two best-selling cookbooks, “Cooking Light Real Family Food” and “The Anti-Inflammation Cookbook: The Delicious Way to Reduce Inflammation and Stay Healthy.” Her next title “The Vibrant Life: Eat Well, Live Well, and Love Your Midlife” will be released in early 2019 by Chronicle Books. In 2012, she was recognized for her work in MAKERS: Women Who Make America, a digital video and broadcast initiative with AOL and PBS that celebrates women who inspire change in the way we live.
“This is an exciting opportunity and I’m thrilled to be partnering with Traeger,” said Ms. Haas. “I’ve always loved working with food and the sense of community that comes with it, and I’m excited to represent an innovative and growing brand that aligns with those values. I can’t wait to start working with the Traeger team to share my love of family cooking, healthy eating, and to show the community how easy it is to create meals on my Traeger, one recipe at a time.”
