Chrissy Teigen on John Legend’s Cooking: Everyone Loves His Recipes More
In extreme anticipation of the arrival of Chrissy Teigen‘s new cookbook, we have been holding on to every shred of detail she shares on the matter. And the latest bit of news is that even some of her husband John Legend‘s recipes will make it into the book.
“Something fun about the book is we’ll have his take and then we’ll have my take,” the supermodel told New York Magazine. “For example, everybody in his family and all of our friends love his mac and cheese, but I think they only love it because ‘John Legend is cooking it,’ like, ‘Oh my God! This is amazing!’ ”
“But it’s a little thick for me — I like a creamy mac,” she adds. “So I’m making my version, too.”
But while Teigen is the one putting in all the work testing recipes “two, three, four times” each, she says, “of course everyone is still going to love his more.”
The Lip Sync Battle co-host also reassured the magazine that everything in the book is “stuff that we truly love to eat.”
“It’s mostly, like, our household staples, the things I love to make for John, things I love cooking for our friends for Super Bowl Sunday, things for girls’ nights, which I have all the time,” she says. “Everything in the book is stuff we have once or twice a month, so it’s tried and true.”
And now, the waiting continues.
