Chrissy Teigen’s love of food culture is, at this point, well known. Less clear, though, is whether her husband and musician (and current Oscar nominee) John Legend shares his wife’s affinity for cooking. “I don’t cook a lot,” he told us at last night’s launch party for the Reimagine Learning Initiative, “but I often cook breakfast.” So does he have a specialty? “I’m good with omelettes, egg sandwiches, scrambled eggs, bacon — anything you want for breakfast, I can make it.”Teigen, however, says it’s those egg sandwiches that have become her husband’s signature dish. “He makes a rendition of the McMuffin, the sausage McMuffin,” she says. It’s sausage, a Thomas’ English muffin, an over-easy egg, and three slices of American cheese. “And only American cheese is acceptable,” Teigen asserts. “It’s the only thing we do right, lately.”
