Doreen Colondres Named First Ever Latina Celebrity Chef as New Brand Ambassador for Bumble Bee’s General Market Consumers

Partnership to Demonstrate the Ease of Living a Healthy and Delicious Life

MIAMI, FL (April 21, 2014) – Hispanic Celebrity Chef Doreen Colondres has been named the first ever Latina to partner with Bumble Bee Foods, North America’s premium seafood company, as the brand’s exclusive chef partner and brand ambassador targeting the U.S. general market consumers.  Colondres, a leading figure in today’s “Latin kitchen” movement and creator of the brand and website The Kitchen Doesn’t Bite®, will join Bumble Bee in its mission to inspire consumers to embrace a healthy and delicious lifestyle. Colondres first teamed up with Bumble Bee last year to connect the brand with the growing U.S. Hispanic market and extend Bumble Bee’s successful “BeeWell for Life®” brandphilosophy.

“We’re thrilled to work with Doreen again and share her passion for inspiring people to cook and have fun doing it,” said Dave Melbourne, Bumble Bee senior vice president, consumer marketing and corporate social responsibility. “Her extensive knowledge of Hispanic cooking and food expertise brings fresh creativity and international flair to the brand, helping relate to consumers everywhere.”

Doreen, who is also known for her TV cooking segments on FoxLife, created new recipes for Bumble Bee, sharing cooking tips and teaching consumers how to use fresh, seasonal ingredients to create healthy, convenient meal solutions.  Born into a family of cooks, Colondres’ family kitchen was the epicenter of her childhood.  She developed a passion for local ingredients, fresh food and merging classic flavors with new ingredients.  Doreen is also working on the launch of her first book, La Cocina No Muerde, to be released this fall, which takes readers with her on a journey to discover authentic Hispanic cuisine.

“Bumble Bee has always been a favorite of mine because it celebrates good food and promotes an overall healthy lifestyle,” said Colondres. “I love introducing people to exceptional quality ingredients like those found in Bumble Bee products that allow them to get out of their normal routine in the kitchen and enjoy cooking simple, healthy yet savory recipes.”
