Chrissy Teigen's Next Cookbook Is Just for Kids
Is there anything Chrissy Teigen can't and won't do? (The answer is actually yes, but we'll get to that later.)
Teigen has announced a new project, and we can practically already hear the collective sigh of relief from fellow parents.
Not only did Teigen recently release her second cookbook, Cravings: Hungry for More, on Sept. 18, launch a cookware and dishware line for Target and team up with Becca cosmetics to release a holiday makeup collection inspired by the cinnamon desserts in her new cookbook, but the mom of two is also whipping up yet another cookbook. This time, though, she’s making her recipes kid-friendly.
At her own event, #CRAVINGSFEST, which took place during the New York City Wine and Food Festival, Teigen announced she’s writing a children’s cookbook.
“I really wanna make it awesome,” Teigen said onstage, where she was joined by her husband, John Legend, and their 2-year-old daughter, Luna.
“I know kids have really simple palates and we all want to make them more refined, but they’re just kids, so we’re gonna do stuff that kids are going to love,” she continued to say, according to People.
Teigen isn’t going at this project alone, though. Luna will likely be by her side tasting all her dishes. And, she said at the event she wants fans to tweet her the dishes they’d like to see included.
“It’s going to be so good,” she added. “Hopefully it’s Luna-approved.”
Luna was also a vital part of the approving process during the creation of Teigen’s second cookbook, which is chock-full of family recipes.
"With the first book, I remember being a little bit nervous about including the Thai food my mom cooked for me growing up. I wasn't sure if people would be open to it, but they loved it. So, mom is back!" she said in a press release in September. "Plus, John tested absolutely every single dish, and there are many Luna-approved recipes (blueberry pancakes with cream cheese bombs, anyone?)."
While Teigen has kept herself plenty busy, there’s one project you won’t see her take on: hosting her own cooking show.
At the same #CRAVINGSFEST event, a fan asked her if she would star in her own cooking show. According to People, she said she’d rather leave that up to her idols Ina Garten and Giada De Laurentiis.
All hope isn’t lost, though. She did admit she’d consider hosting a “travel-food cooking experience” series instead.
