We are completely girl-crushing on supermodel Chrissy Teigen right now, and not just because she has become one half of the hottest couples in Hollywood since tying the knot with singer John Legend. Nope, while this glamorously gorgeous Sports Illustrated model appears to have it all and is not the slightest bit delusional about why her modelling career was rapidly propelled into the fast lane since being associated with the R&B star. Chrissy has proved herself to be more than just a pretty face by remaining true to her passion for food, which has seen her rise through the ranks to become quite the ‘it’ personality in the culinary world.
First came her food blog, So Delushious, which, as well as being thoroughly entertaining, showcases ‘real’ recipes that are far from the dietary norms we’d expect from a model, all accompanied by stunning imagery. “I always get to eat what I want, because if I don’t I go insane,” she says. We know that feeling! In July she added the role of judge on new MTV competitive cooking show Snack-Off to her CV, and now the most exciting news is that there’s a cookbook in the making! While no release date has yet been scheduled, Chrissy has engineered quite the teaser campaign on Instagram. Taking into account her Norwegian-Thai background and a love of good food, here’s a small taster of what to expect when it finally hits shelves. We can’t wait!
