We already knew she had a soft spot for scrambled eggs with bacon, avocado, and Cholula, and now Chrissy Teigen is poised to take her well-known love of food to the next level with her first cookbook. The model and food blogger is working on an as-yet-untitled book for Penguin Random House imprint Clarkson Potter. Francis Lam, who already has a few interesting food titles on the way, is set to edit this one.
“I am honored to be the first person to bake parchment paper into a cake and write a cookbook in the same year,” Teigen says, in a statement. “I’m proud to be this pioneer and hopefully inspire others to embark on their own culinary adventures — successful or otherwise.”
Here’s more on what the publisher says to expect:
Fans of Chrissy Teigen’s food blog, So Delushious, and Instagram and Twitter feeds know that one of her greatest pleasures in life is to cook with and for her friends and family, including her husband John Legend. She loves sharing her passion for food with her millions of fans online, offering recipe triumphs and side-splitting commentary on her culinary exploits in the kitchen. In this spirit, Chrissy’s first cookbook will be just as fun and entertaining as she is, highlighting approximately 100 original recipes with color photos and peppered with hilarious anecdotes and photos from Chrissy’s Instagram and Twitter profiles to inspire her fans to get into the kitchen and start cooking.
We’re guessing those exploits will involve meat, anchovies, and perhaps lots of noodles. No publication date is set yet for the cookbook, but Teigen is set to serve as a co-host on The F·A·B, a daytime talk show that will debut next fall.
