Chrissy Teigen - John's Honey Butter Wings
Recipes For All The Food You Want To Eat
Model and mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen just revealed the cover of her forthcoming cookbook titled Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat. On her site, So Delushious, Teigen boasted, “I have a book! It’s the Sh**.” And her fans seem to agree. Though the official release date isn’t until February 23, Teigen’s followers have already launched the presale of the book into the number one best-seller slot in entertaining and holiday cooking on Amazon.
Behind The Scenes
If the early praise is any indication, Teigen’s written entrée into the culinary world will be a massive success. Who doesn’t want to learn the recipe for husband John Legend’s famous fried chicken with spicy honey butter, her mom’s scalloped potatoes and hangover-curing porridge, or her secret to cheesy cheese-less eggs? “I am huge on bold, strong flavors, and I think every aspect of a dish should be thoughtful, whether it’s the chicken on top of a Cobb salad or the topping on a savory casserole,” she says. “The book reflects me and what I grew up loving in a Thai and American household.”
It’s hard to believe that Teigen, who is a “huge fan and admirer of Giada and Ina” and says she reads cookbooks like novels, was once nervous about writing her own book. “My biggest fear was looking like this book was shoved out by some model who pretends to eat pizza and pokes around at things in the kitchen.” She adds, “I wanted to prove to people that I have a real passion and love for food.”
