Tasty Brand

After many years of friendship & creative collaboration, Liane Weintraub & Shannan Swanson started Tasty Brand, Inc. to fulfill their vision for healthy & safe snack foods that offer kids & families all the fun of conventional snacks, but none of the junk. Liane was born & raised in Manhattan, NY where city life presents some challenges to healthy eating & living. After attending Columbia University (BA), Oxford University & the Annenberg School of Journalism at USC (MA), she worked as a local television news reporter (United Paramount Network). She has also been a regular contributor to a number of local & national print/online publications. In that capacity, she encountered many people with heart-gripping stories, the most touching of whom were children. Her commitment to the environment & to children’s causes are an integral part of Tasty Brand. As a journalist, she understands the power of story-telling & is committed to spreading Tasty Brand’s message far & wide. A self-taught cook, Liane has a passion for food & good nutrition. Liane & her husband Richard have 2 children – Ava, 9 & Cole, 8. Shannan grew up in an iconic American family in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Her grandfather & his family founded Swanson Frozen Foods which literally changed the face of American at-home dining. The Swanson TV-Dinner became the must-have item of its generation virtually overnight. After college at the University of Denver (BA), Shannan followed her dream of pursuing a career in fine cuisine, attending the legendary Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, from which she earned a Grand Diplôme. She moved to Los Angeles to work under Wolfgang Puck & eventually opened her own private catering business. As a chef, Shannan’s philosophy is to create delicious & harmonious flavors without contrived ingredients. Shannan & her husband Eric have 2 children: Louisa, 10 & Sonny, 7. See More
