Both chefs will also be involved with the company’s new H.O.M.E platform: Health, Organization, Money, Environment. H.O.M.E showcases how Tupperware(R) products can support healthier and more sustainable habits, and will educate and enthuse consumers to commit to a healthier lifestyle; through health conscious cooking, a more organized space inside the home, cost efficient kitchen routines and incredible earning opportunities, and environmentally-friendly food storage habits. The chefs will specifically focus on the health portion of the platform.
Chef O’Keeffe and Chef Lucceti, who will focus on Tupperware’s growing Hispanic business, will highlight healthy alternatives to classic recipes, while showcasing the benefits of Tupperware’s wide range of cooking tools and on-the-go meal solutions. Tupperware’s contemporary product line includes food prep, service and storage products ranging from the high-end Chef Series(TM) cookware and knives, to such favorites as the Quick Chef and Season-Serve(R) Container. Both Chefs will also illustrate their approachable philosophy to cooking simple, delicious meals using key products and healthy ingredients.
Chef O’Keeffe is thrilled to join the Tupperware team, saying, “Working with such a respected, iconic brand is a dream come true. My philosophy is to eat healthy and keep it fun and Tupperware(R) products provide the perfect way to fulfill both aspects!” Chef Lucceti added, “I am excited to show people how great cooking tools and healthy, fresh ingredients can change their entire cooking experience and ultimately their lives!”
Chef O’Keeffe is a graduate of the Dublin Institute of Technology, with a BA in the Culinary Arts.
