Maybe she’s on a photo shoot in Zanzibar. Maybe she’s making people laugh on TV. But all Chrissy Teigen really wants to do is talk about dinner. Or breakfast. Lunch gets some love, too.

For years, she’s been collecting, cooking, and Instagramming her favorite recipes, and here they are: from breakfast all day to John’s famous fried chicken with spicy honey butter to her mom’s Thai classics.

Salty, spicy, saucy, and fun as sin (that’s the food, but that’s Chrissy, too), these dishes are for family, for date night at home, for party time, and for a few life-sucks moments (salads). You’ll learn the importance of chili peppers, the secret to cheesy-cheeseless eggs, and life tips like how to use bacon as a home fragrance, the single best way to wake up in the morning, and how not to overthink men or Brussels sprouts. Because for Chrissy Teigen, cooking, eating, life, and love are one and the same.

    • If you're an average cook

    Chrissy Teigen definitely knows what she is talking about. Her writing is GOLD and I appreciate the honesty and humour. The recipes are simple and there is an absolute variety. There is meat, vegetarian, soup and many other recipes and they range from easy to hard (I wouldn't say hard kinda like you dedicate more effort). My only complaint is maybe a few more recipes and maybe one or two deserts, nothing fancy but I personally would like a desert recipe so the book is officially balanced. Other than that, highly recommend this book if you are a beginner to medium cook.

        Pros

        • Common ingredients
        • Delicious food
        • Easy recipes
        • Lots of variety

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Cooks of all levels
          • Fans of cheese

          Model/celebrity status aside, this cookbook is incredibly easy to follow, and the recipes I've cooked from it have all been outstanding. There are no obscure/absurdly expensive ingredients, no finicky restaurant flourishes, and no excessive cooking times.

            "Even the most celebrity-cookbook-skeptical reader will find it hard not to enjoy this tome from supermodel Chrissy Teigen. With self-deprecating wit and down-to-earth charm, Teigen posits herself as an enthusiastic home cook and passionate eater." --Publisher's Weekly"Chrissy Teigen's Cravings is a cookbook with realistic recipes for people who like it "spicy, salty, sticky, crunchy, juicy, oozy," and if you have some kind of prejudice against supermodels who unabashedly love Taco Bell, there's nothing I can do to help you. It's fun to read, with a recipe for everyone with two eyes, a stomach, and a fork. Frito pie? A chapter called "Sh*t on toast"? Absurd sexy photo shoots with chicken wings? What's not to love? I didn't even mention the bulldogs yet. If there's one thing we can all learn from Teigen, it's not to judge a cookbook by its cover." -- Bon Appetit "Maybe the best celebrity cookbook of all time."-- SELF "Cravings is a perfect cookbook... it's a must-buy--never daunting, and filled with near-pornographic images of hearty, meaty, cheesy food that would make Gwyneth Paltrow explode. As a culmination of everything Teigen has built over the past few years, it's brilliant." - Jezebel "Cravings... lives up to the hype 100 percent."-- PopSugar "We love this cookbook. It's full of things we actually want to eat." -- Refinery 29 "[Cravings] is dripping with energy and enthusiasm and, most of all, joy. Do not discount the value of joy. It's far too rare in food writing, and I know professionals who could learn a thing or two about joy from Teigen." -- Epicurious "Teigen is notoriously funny, and her sense of humor comes through here, as does her self-awareness -- she tackles the issue of credibility early and often, always presenting herself more as a cooking enthusiast than as an expert." -- Eater "When was the last time you laughed out loud at a cookbook? So long ago you can't remember, which is enough of a reason to give Chrissy Teigen's first book a spin. But it's the recipes that'll keep you coming back." -- Saveur
