Today we speak to chef Marco Niccoli.

I was born in San Diego, California and am now living in Salt Lake City, Utah. I come from an Italian family of all boys, there are 5 of us and my dad had restaurants in Los Angeles called “Bruno’s Old World Italian Deli”. I knew from day one that I wanted to be a Chef, food has always been my passion!

About three years ago I met the women of my dreams (she is a chef) and together we started to change the way people around us look at food. We work a lot together catering high-end private parties, teaching private cooking classes and doing “Pop Up” restaurants all over the country. We both have two beautiful kids from previous marriages, which means we have four kids under 7 years old together! They are amazing and round out our ‘Apron Squad’.

Before Traeger I worked as the Executive Chef at Culinary Crafts, one of the most respected catering agencies in the U.S., producing over 500 events annually, the majority of which are outdoors. I was recognized as one of the Fab 50 (youngest Executive Chefs in the state) and led the team that won the ICA Caterer of the Year in 2013. I was also the keynote speaker at “The Art of Catering” global conference in Denver Colorado, and last year was one of five global chefs selected to do the launch party for a new Toyota model for 2,000 people.

Now that I am working for Traeger Grills, where I am their Global Culinary Director, I get to travel the world sharing my passion and teaching people how to cook with the natural flavor of hard wood. I couldn’t be more stoked about bringing people together around amazing food!

This highly-rated Under Armour unisex athletic backpack is $14 off for Prime Day
Under Armour Hustle 5 unisex backpack Prime Day deal

Backpacks can be hit or miss. Some of them are super durable, but whether or not they'll fit all the gear you need is up in the air. The best backpacks are pricier, which makes sense. You tend to get what you pay for. If you're in the market for a solid backpack, Under Armour is offering an excellent discount on the Unisex Hustle 5.0 Backpack for Prime Day this year. Usually $55, you can get the pack for $41, saving you $14, and there are a ton of color options available. You should know, however, that this is a limited-time deal, and we have no idea how long it will stick around. We recommend shopping now if you're interested so you don't miss out.

 
Here's why you should consider getting the Under Armour Hustle 5.0 Backpack now
Prime Day officially starts July 16 and runs through July 17, so understandably, most people are probably waiting until the official event to do their shopping. If that's you, we get it. However, in recent years, the deals available on Prime Day haven't been much better than the early stuff floating around. Also, a variety of retailers are now involved, so it often pays to look outside of Amazon for deals. In this case, the Under Armour Hustle is available as part of a limited-time deal, and there's no countdown, so we don't know when it will end. It could be gone before you know it or even sell out.
