Allrecipes Aims To Make The Home Cook This Year’s Thanksgiving Hero


Allrecipes, the world’s largest digital food brand, with more than 1 billion visits annually, in partnership with Campbell’s®, is poised to make home cooks across the country the holiday’s ultimate Thanksgiving Heroes. In 2012, a record-breaking number of home cooks visited Allrecipes sites and apps during the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving Day. This year, whether seeking inspiration about how to feed a crowd of hungry friends, serve tried-and-true recipes at an intimate family gathering, or prepare a homemade food gift to share; Allrecipes has recipes, allreceipes_new-sizevideos, and meal ideas available across devices for every dish on the Thanksgiving table.

At Allrecipes, our focus is to help our community of home cooks shine this holiday season,” said Stan Pavlovsky, Allrecipes’ President. “We’re excited to share our extensive suite of resources, tools, and comprehensive collection of top-rated recipes with this tech-savvy generation and others to create a stress-free Thanksgiving.”

Findings in the Allrecipes 2013 Holiday Trends Report  (proved that the role of digital resources is increasingly significant when it comes to planning, shopping, and preparing for holiday meals. This is especially true for Millennial home cooks, 39 percent of whom plan to host Thanksgiving gatherings this year at their homes.

In addition, Millennials are the most likely generation of home cooks to complement traditional cookbooks and media with digital resources such as recipe websites and apps (44%), social media (25%), online videos (25%), and blogs (20%) for inspiration and guidance.

For example, if a home cook finds the gravy too lumpy or discovers the turkey just won’t cook through, they can simply text the word “holiday” to 63485 on their mobile phones for immediate help and links to resources to prevent or resolve nearly any Thanksgiving crisis.


We’re thrilled to be partnering with Allrecipes again this year in its mission to provide a superior level of inspiration and support for all home cooks,” said Mark Tumelty, Brand Manager, at Campbell’s. “The Campbell’s brand is synonymous with Thanksgiving celebrations and we can’t think of a better platform to reach the Holiday Hostess MEREDITH CORPORATION LOGOduring the year’s busiest cooking season.”

Jaguar to Air First Ever Commercial During The Super Bowl Television Broadcast In New Campaign To Launch 2014 F-TYPE Coupe





Have you ever noticed how in Hollywood movies, all the villains are played by Brits?”

Jaguar announced it will launch a new brand and product advertising campaign, themed “British Villains,” for the launch of the new Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe. The campaign will include the brand’s first television commercial produced for running in the broadcast of the Super Bowl.  The ad is scheduled to have its broadcast debut on Fox during the 2nd half of Super Bowl XLVIII.

Jaguar’s debut commercial in the broadcast of the Super Bowl reflects the momentum the brand has achieved through its sales growth.  It also follows the high-profile sponsorship announced earlier this month that Jaguar will elevate their presence in Hollywood by joining with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles (BAFTA LA) as the official 2013 title sponsor of the BAFTA LA JAGUAR BRITANNIA AWARDS.

Jaguar will debut the new F-TYPE Coupe, at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show and Tokyo Motor Show in November. Year-to-date through October, Jaguar sales have increased 36 percent in the United States, the highest growth in the industry.

The campaign features a 30-second spot and a wide range of digital assets and executions and will play off the idea that Brits have long made the best villains in landmark films, combining intelligence with charm, restlessness with calm, and always confident.  In the world of pop culture, villains disrupt the status quo and challenge the establishment, while living one step ahead of, and better than, the pack. The campaign asks the question, “Have you ever noticed how in Hollywood movies, all the villains are played by Brits?” It will launch with a unique hashtag, #GoodToBeBad, linking to the overall allure of the F-TYPE Coupe and British villains.



The Jaguar campaign, which will feature renowned British actors, is being filmed by Academy Award-winning British film and television director Tom Hooper in London.  “This is one of those jobs that can really be a lot of fun, so I was quite happy to oblige when Jaguar asked me to be a part of their first Super Bowl commercial,” said Hooper.
