Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) July 09, 2011
Jeanne Ambrose has been named editor of Taste of Home, the wildly popular 3.2-million circulation food and entertaining magazine, effective Monday, June 20. Most recently a freelance editor and writer specializing in food, nutrition and health, Ambrose is an industry veteran widely known in food publishing circles.
Her most recent project before starting her new role at Taste of Home was to edit and manage every aspect of a MasterChef newsstand special, the first such publication from the popular television show to appear on American shelves. She has also been a contributing food editor at Organic Gardening magazine and a contributing writer and editor for many national magazines. Ambrose is the co-author - with her daughter Lindsey - of the book Heartbreak Recovery Kitchen: Recipes and Remedies for Mending and Moving On. Previous staff positions include editor of Heart-Healthy Living magazine, and food and nutrition editor for Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Her first gigs in the business were in newspapers; first at The Pacific Daily News in Guam, then at The Honolulu Star-Bulletin.
"We're beyond excited to welcome Jeanne to Taste of Home," said Catherine Cassidy, Editor in Chief of Taste of Home. "Jeanne's background in the publishing industry, coupled with her passion for the world of food and entertaining make her a great addition to our robust and growing team."
