Amanda Haas

Amanda Haas started her career at Williams Sonoma one month after graduating from college.  After seven years in the corporate world, she decided to attend culinary school full-time at Tante Marie’s.  For the next ten years, Haas developed and tested recipes for over a dozen cookbooks, including A16 Food + Wine; SPQR; and Cooking in Everyday English.  She also launched her first blog One Family One Meal.  During this time period, Haas hosted over 300 cooking videos for Williams Sonoma and contributed to many of their cookbooks.  In 2011, Amanda returned to Williams Sonoma for her dream job as the Director of Culinary. Simultaneously, she published two cookbooks, Cooking Light Real Family Food (Time, Inc., 2012) and The Anti-Inflammation Cookbook: the Delicious Way to Reduce Inflammation and Stay Healthy (Chronicle Books, 2016).  Haas is now focusing on individual pursuits in the wellness space.  She is a brand ambassador for Whole Foods Market and Traeger Grills and also consults for start-up companies such as Brava Ovens and RightRice.  She has also launched her first online cooking class series with Bluprint, titled Mindful Meal Planning. Her next book, The Vibrant Life: Eat Well, Live Well, and Love Your Midlife (Chronicle Books, 2019) will be released in August.
