Description

Product Description

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.

Review

"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

About the Author

Chrissy Teigen is a two-time bestselling cookbook author. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband John Legend, two children, and three dogs.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Introduction

I know, I know. A cookbook from me? The girl who had two fast-food Twitter accounts fighting for her affection in what was the oddest, greasiest exchange she had ever witnessed? The one whose visits to Waffle House and whose messed-up miscommunications with the Postmates dinner delivery guys make it to the Internet sometimes? The girl who actually celebrated Thanksgiving at Taco Bell headquarters among her closest friends she had never met? Yep. I am doing it. 

And doing it. (And doing it well.)

So. This book. My Thai mom is ESL, but I am FSL: Food has been my second language since I was a tiny little brat. A lot of kids wear superhero costumes, princess costumes. I used to fall asleep, so happy, wearing my little chef’s hat or mom’s chile pepper apron with oven mitts on. (Don’t sleep in oven mitts you cooked in all day because ants will make you their bitch. See, you’re learning something already!) I spent my childhood in the kitchen following around Thai Mom, who pretty much made everything from scratch, using tools none of my other friends had in their homes. I remember sitting cross-legged on the kitchen counter, an annoying trait I still possess, buttering piles and piles of crackers for dad’s chicken soup, ripping up bacon for mom’s scalloped potatoes. I remember, when my friends were over, plugging my nose and pretending to hate the exotic fish sauce my mom was using. I remember debating the finer points of flaky pastry with my chicken-potpie-obsessed American dad. I remember the divine mix of Thai food, TV dinners, and hearty, homemade goodness that have shaped this palate of mine to this day. I remember all this but I still google my husband’s birthday. Thank god he’s famous.

The kitchen is a place I know well. It’s my favorite room wherever I am living, and it has to be completely open and social. Our kitchen has seen way more activity than our hot tub or sex dungeon. The kitchen is the heart of any home. And my heart is in the kitchen.

But whether for business or pleasure, I am almost always on a plane. Same with John. It’s amazing—we’ve been to so many beautiful places around the world. We’ve eaten every sort of meal, at the finest French Michelin-star restaurants, BBQs in Texas, and street markets in the Thai village my mom grew up in. When I’m not traveling, though, I am basically a world-class shut-in.

When I am home, I am home,  people, and if it wasn’t for the fact that John wants genuine date-nights out with me, I would probably never. Ever. Leave. (Why he doesn’t consider watching me watch Real Housewives  a datenight,
I will never understand.)

Which brings us to cooking. I am not lying when I tell you I can hang out in the kitchen for twelve hours straight without stopping. Just ask my live-in mom, who you might know as Pepper Thai (or, to be exact, atPepperThai2, which is her name because she doesn’t remember the password to atPepperThai or atPepperThai1 so be on the lookout for atPepperThai3 by the time this thing comes out). Or ask all the friends who I make come over instead of going to their house UNLESS they give in to my demands of my bringing over some sort of small feast. When I am cooking, I am in the moment. I’m very slowwww, rereading recipes, sipping wine, munching, sipping vodka, more munching. I really get into the dish I am making. I relax. My day job may be exhausting, but cooking is my peace. My dream is to have a big family with lots of grandkids. And we’ll get together every Sunday for a hearty dinner at our house, and we’ll all live in flavorful bliss, happily ever after. (Or they could become vegans. Oh my god, they could become vegans.)

I started posting pictures of my meals on social media, and I could not believe the response. A few classy blokes asked for more TITTTAYYYYYY, but most of you are awesome. I’d post a picture of a dish (usually with some story of how I messed it up but it was delish anyway), and lots of you would tweet me back, ask me for a recipe, give me some tips, or just plain ol’ get excited to get in the kitchen yourselves. We would have our #DrunkDinnerParties, posting pics of our successes and failures. And I started a little food blog called So Delushious. It’s been amazing to share my love of food with you. I feel like I should pay you for the overwhelming joy it gives me when people tell me that something I posted got them excited to cook something for themselves.

So of course I had to write a cookbook, and of course I had to give you my best. I cooked and cooked with my cowriter, Adeena, until everything tasted just how I wanted it—and then I cooked it again. And again for John. And again for friends. And AGAIN for the finicky eaters who don’t like much of anything. Once we got those people excited, we knew we had the perfect cookbook. When it came to creating these recipes, I wanted this to be as simple as possible without skimping on the flavor. Cooking can be intimidating to a lot of people, and I want you to know you really can make a great meal without having gone to Le Cordon Bleu. I want the recipes to work every time, and without a jillion ingredients you have to go to twelve stores for. And I want them to taste UNFORGETT ABLE. Like go-to-sleep-grinning because what you made was just so painfully, achingly incredible!

I know how I like my food. I like it spicy, salty, sticky, crunchy, juicy, oozy—basically any dish you know and love, jacked up to a bordering-on-sociallyunacceptable amount of flavor. Let’s face it, I do have to make every bite count, so if I’m gonna drag that fork to my mouth hole, it better taste crazy delicious. And I can promise you that everything in this book does.

If you’re expecting a model to write a cookbook full of diet recipes for you to perfect your bikini bod, I think you’ll be a little surprised here. These are recipes we love to indulge in with family and friends. Some more hearty than others, some even more hearty than the hearty ones. But every single recipe is something we love. Look, I don’t want to be one of those dead-inside laughing-with-a-salad chicks, and I don’t want to seem like one of those annoying “I can eat anything I want anytime” chicks. It’s just that I wanted to be honest in this book about the kinds of food I love, the kinds of food I crave . I just have to find ways to make those cravings work with my day job (e.g., sometimes with a well-timed “f*ck it”).

I’ve always loved cookbooks (I have hundreds) but what I haven’t loved is having to flip through tons of different ones to find the stuff I like to make and eat. So when I decided to make one of my own I wanted it to be a bible you could flip open and use for every meal. Perfect eggs? Check. Soupmaster classics and the best salads ever? Yup. Dinner for a couple or a small group of friends? Totally. Snacks for football Sundays? Yes, indeed. They’re all here—except dessert. I mean, I will go to an Italian restaurant and order another pasta while everyone else is enjoying their panna cotta. Also it is well documented how badly I suck at baking. So you’ll have to Fudgie-the-Whale-it for dessert. Sorry!

So start flipping through, and start cooking! Nothing would make me happier than to know that this book has helped make your life a little bit more flavorful and interesting. I’m sure I’ll be hearing from every single one of you really soon, so I’ll begin clearing out my in-box . . . as soon as I clear my plate.


Xoxoxo,

Chrissy

I got this book for Christmas, along with 6 others. I was a little skeptical since it’s a celebrity cookbook. A month later, I am reaching for this book almost exclusively over my other new ones. Everything I’ve made has hit it out of the park. I’ve cooked 15 things in here so far. These are truly delicious recipes. I’m a very experienced home cook, but even for those with less experience, these recipes are manageable. I laughed a bit at some of the modelesque photos of Chrissy (not that she doesn’t look amazing) because I rarely see that in a cookbook. At least the ones I own. The food photography is gorgeous. I’m wondering how she maintains her figure if she eats like this very often. The recipes aren’t healthy by any stretch, but I think that is fairly clear in the book description. Know this isn’t a diet book. It’s called “Cravings” for a reason! On the negative side, some of the ingredients in the Thai section may be hard to find if you live in a smaller area. The ingredient lists are fairly long, and I feel like the recipes take a bit longer to prepare than the recipe states, so just know that. Might not be what you reach for if you want a quick weeknight meal. There are no dessert recipes in this book, which is kind of a bummer. The print is very small, but that’s just nitpicking.

Try the biscuits and gravy recipe! There isn’t much new to be brought to biscuits and gravy, but her maple cream takes it to a whole other level. I had never heard of or tasted Pad Grapow, but I made it last night. So good! I love being introduced to new things. I feel like many of the recipes in here are things most people will have tried in some iteration, myself included. In my case however, most of the things in the Thai section are new to me, and I can’t wait to try everything in it! Thanks for introducing Sambal Olek into my life Chrissy! Yum.

This book was the one I was least excited to use out of the ones I received for Christmas, but it’s the one I like the most! I really do love this book. Would recommend to anyone, or buy as a gift for someone else! This book exceeded my expectations by a long shot.

I hope she comes out with another book, and I would love a dessert section.

If you make nothing else, make the Jok Moo. The most comforting delicious food ever. Better than my fave Mac & cheese. I made this because I was upset about Anthony Bourdain and it was a comfort. Thanks, Chrissy. AB RIP

I admit it, I ordered the book a little biased. I love Chrissy, and she loves food. However loving food doesn''t mean you can cook. After some debating I got the book. I have tons of cookbooks. Everytime I get a new cookbook I read it cover to cover like a story. I have to say first off I was so impressed. The recipes are not complicated, they don''t require 50 ingredients you can only find in 12 different specialty stores. The recipes are simple and straight forward. The directions clear. The pictures, are exactly what you want out of a cookbook. They make you hungry and want to cook. That''s exactly what I did! I have made a few recipes and so far everything is ass delicious as you would think. My only critique is I wish there were some desserts. I love sugar even thou it doesn''t love me. I get it thou, I can''t bake either so why put in baking recipies if you can''t bake. If you love food and cooking buy it. The food is delicious, the book is fun to read. I am very happy with my purchase. Pre-ording her second cookbook. Can''t wait!

Just wasn’t impressed. The food doesn’t make you get excited with the “I HAVE TO MAKE THIS!!” The book is basically pictures of her and her family - which are all gorgeous - but I would have preferred to see the food. I have no doubts her food is great and she is amazing at what she does - but it just isn’t for me or anything I want to try. Hopefully next time the book will have pictures of the food with a better, more organized layout. With maybe some varied recipes, or even some healthy options.

If you’re a huge Chrissy fan, this is everything you want and need. If you’re more into cooking and food, I would invest in another book.

Yes. That Chrissy Teigen.

One phrase review of this cookbook: Shockingly Fantastic

Like, shocked shocked. Stunned. Surprised. Unexpected feelings.

Ok, composing self to write actual sentences.

I fully expected to hate-read this cookbook. Sure, I enjoy a lot of Chrissy Teigen''s tweets. She''s that rare famous person who makes themselves extremely publicly accessible, but in an actual authentic way. Her online presence doesn''t appear to be artfully constructed by a PR firm. She replies to trolls. She talks about buying giant bear stuffed animals from shopping TV. She talks about her husband in a normal, loving, supportive way. She''s a reminder that yes, celebrity is another plane of existence, but, it''s still a career, and she''s still a human being.

I knew that she enjoyed cooking. Or, well, attempted a lot of cooking. Her twitter feed contains a lot of posts about failed attempts in the kitchen. It led me to believe Teigen tried to make a lot of food, but that it probably turned out kinda terribly most of the time. So, I selected this cookbook to review just to see what a mess it would be. This celebrity trying to be all cookbook-ey. I expected one of those books with a "If you''re a super rich person like me, you can have your housekeeper make you gluten-free llama milk infused baby kangaroo burgers too" tone. I promised I would give a recipe or two a try, but that I was probably going to pass this book along to someone else for their amusement.

Anyway.

I. Was. Wrong.

This cookbook is awesome.

The recipes? They''re GREAT. Accessible. Unique, but familiar. Delicious. Unpretentious. Tasty. Good. Yummy. Things I will make again. Dare I say, some new favorites even?

Wow. It''s just so good. Five star rating worthy. A book deserving of early admission to Food52''s Piglet 2017 tournament (even though it does not have the pedigree of the usual entrants).

Enough about my surprise about this book. Let''s talk about the book itself and why I love it, why I think you might like it.

Most importantly: The recipes

As I do with most cookbooks where I start to see a recipe or two, or three, early in the book that I want to make. I started a list. All the recipes I want to try. Maybe not today, but someday. So, I started that list in the breakfast section. That Dutch Baby Pancake looks tasty. Crab Cakes Benedict - wow, I think I could make this. Bacon Hash Browns? Sign me up. I kept going. Soup. Salads. Noodles. Thai. Party. Vegetables. Supper (this one was hard - my parents call it supper - I don''t - it''d dinner - but... I let it go). My list had 53 recipes on it. 53. The book only has 95-ish or so recipes, and I want to make over half of them. That''s an incredible accomplishment.

So, how does this recipes perform in practice? Will our three-and-a-half year old eat them? Are the ingredient lists accurate? Do the steps make sense? Does this feel like a well-tested recipe?

Dutch Baby Pancake: Super easy to make. Beautifully random squiggly rise in the oven. Delicious. Six thumbs up. Kid/family-approved.

Cobb Salad with Honey Mustard Ranch Dressing: An actual text I sent to my wife: "&^%$, this is a good salad". The seasoning on the chicken was fantastic. Just spicy enough to get a bunch of flavor out without passing toddler-acceptable levels. The charred corn was super tasty. The dressing. THAT dressing! The hard boiled eggs. That our toddler ate. That she had never eaten before. The combination. This was one of the best salads I have ever eaten, much less prepared (there are a lot of steps with this one, and there''s a whole bunch of chopping, but it''s an extremely well-written recipe). Family Favorite List addition.

Sesame Chicken Noodles: This is a really well-constructed recipe (you use the same water you boil the chicken in to cook the pasta). It''s also really really really good. The sesame-based sauce for the noodles is lick your fingers tasty. The recipe says it serves 4 as a light dinner. Our 2.25 diners licked the pot clean.

Italian Sausage Meatloaf: This is a really good recipe - adding Italian Sausage to meatloaf is brilliant - but I screwed it up a little. I tried to make it on a solo parent weeknight, so I rushed a little and didn''t mix it up as fully as I should have which led to some mushy breadcrumb only sections. It also needed more time in the oven than the recipe''s "about 1 hour" step. That seems to be common with my latest meatloaf cookery though, so it''s not a fault of Chrissy''s. My minor related suggestion here though would be to add a "cook to XXX degrees" step. Overall, this turned out great tasting and I would make it again. On a weekend. When I can give it the proper attention.

Skillet-charred Fish Tacos: Five stars. These were just phenomenal. The spice rub for the tilapia was great. The toddler loved the fish. Kelley loved the tacos. I loved the tacos. I ate fish taco leftovers the next day. We''ll make this again. Probably soon.

Literally Stovetop Pork Chops: We don''t usually bread our pork chops. I''ve certainly never thought, "Hey, maybe let''s get some Stovetop Stuffing mix and bread our pork chops with that." But, that''s what this recipe calls for. And, well, I mean, broken record here, but, it''s delicious. It''s so good that when I asked our daughter a week later what she wanted for dinner, she said, "Hmmm.... Pork Chops!"

Pad Grapow Chicken (Basil Chicken): This recipe is from the tiny "Thai Mom" section of the cookbook and it makes me kinda hope for a future Thai Mom specific book. I''m a big fan of Thai food. Kelley is a big fan of Thai food. Our daughter doesn''t know a lot about specific International cuisines yet. This recipe was soooooo good. I want to make it again with basil fresh from the garden, because it was delicious with store bought stuff, but I think it would be heavenly with some leaves pulled fresh from the stalk.

Buttery Glazed Green Beans: On to a vegetable. A side dish. A simple combination of sugar and water and green beans and butter. Easy recipe, great, slightly crispy green beans.

Warm Corn Salad: This is actually a component of the Seared Scallops recipe that I wanted to make, but couldn''t find the right scallops for, so we pivoted and had Sole instead. But, I still make the corn salad. And I''m glad I did. In fact, even my not-really-that-big-of-a-fan-of-corn spouse said, "This salad is really good, I like how this corn is made." So, yeah, approved.

A couple of other review points.

The organization of the book is nice. I like having the breakfast vs salad vs noodles vs dinner type sections. I do think she got a little too cutesy with the "@*#$& on Toast" and "Stuff that Seems Complicated But Isn''t" sections. I get it, I just don''t think it was needed.

The recipe introductions are right in line with the tone of Chrissy Teigen. A little snarky, a little heartfelt, a lot personal. I like hearing about the background of the recipes. The stuff that reminds her of her mom, or her dad, or that thing that John Legend made that everyone loves. I also like the humor. But. In small doses. If you love love love all of of Chrissy Teigen''s tweets, then by all means, sit down and read this cookbook cover-to-cover. You''ll love it. On the other hand, if you just like her sense of humor, I might recommend reading the book in small portions. I find that for me, a small dose of Teigen goes a long way. In no way does this detract from the greatness of the food you will make based on this book, but just be forewarned.

Overall, I really really like this cookbook. At first I thought it was just because it exceeded my expectations so greatly, but after further analysis, I think it''s because it contains really delicious recipes, the recipes themselves are very well-written, and it''s obvious that the recipes have been well-tested. I could cook exclusively from this book for a month and we''d be happy family.

You should definitely buy this book if you''re a huge fan of Chrissy Teigen. But, surprisingly, you should also buy this book if you simply love good food.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.

Lately I''ve been participating in a Cookbook Club at one of the branches of the Free Library of Philadelphia. This month''s go-to was "Cravings". As a librarian and adept home cook I''ve had ample opportunity to review many, many cookbooks, from the sublime (Hari Nayak''s "My Indian Kitchen" to the ridiculous (Peg Bracken''s "I Hate to Cook Book"). I, like many other readers, are suspicious of celebrity cookbooks. Nonetheless, I''m going to give you my general impressions, based on the food I tried at Cookbook Club.
1) Chrissy Teigen clearly likes spicy food. I prepared the Skillet-Charred Fish Tacos, which included sriracha mayonnaise to spread on the tortilla, a hot spice rub with which to prepare the fish, and a peppery green sauce (I used jalapenos) for a topping. Other recipes used liberal amounts of similar spices and peppers. The tacos, btw, were AWESOME--and benefited from all the toppings I had to prep (radishes, red cabbage, scallions, avocado, tomato). Old El Paso it ain''t!
2) The recipes as a whole weren''t vetted for current "healthy trends", but everything I tasted (12 recipes from Cravings, including the Meat Loaf, Coconut Rice, French Toast Casserole, jalapeno cornbread, eggplant pasta bake, "dump and done" ramen salad, queso dip, fish tacos, Roasted Cauliflower salad, and an absolutely killer mac and cheese) was delightful and as far as I''m concerned, perfect for company.
3) Ms. Teigen''s personality shines through in this book. Yes, there''s some NSFW language issues, but that''s kind of part of the fun. It doesn''t get in the way of the food, and that''s what''s important. You don''t like recipes like SH*T ON TOAST, or other of George Carlin''s seven, black them out.
4)There''s a lot of prep work involved in a number of the recipes. I found myself grateful to own a food processor.
5)Yes, she uses stovetop stuffing (crushed) to coat pork chops,and frosted flakes as a topping for the French Toast Casserole, but come on people, this isn''t Escoffier. Why re-invent the wheel? Personally I love the idea of re-purposing prepared food. I''ve used leftover soft pretzels for poultry stuffing.
6)It''s clear that she loves her family (immediate and extended), food, and sharing the love. What''s not to like? Five stars. Can''t wait to see the sequel.

I’m a big fan of Chrissy and was curious to see what this book would be like given that she always posts amazing looking dishes being cooked on social media. Absolutely doesn’t disappoint, have tried four of the recipes so far and all have been delicious and easy to follow....See more

Absolutely doesn’t disappoint, have tried four of the recipes so far and all have been delicious and easy to follow. Amusing to read as well, she has taken the time to tell the story of where the dish came from/ why she likes it before each recipe. Definitely recommend!

Lemony Arugula Spaghetti Cacio E Pepe

Serves 4

Prep time: 10 minutes.

Total time: 25 minutes.

Some say love conquers all, but I say cacio e pepe does. It’s true, John and I fell for each other and got married in Lake Como, Italy, but it’s also where I became a slave to this pasta dish, which is super peppery and cheesy and is basically the boss of me whenever I make it. At first I was a little worried: Since I first tasted it when I was all gooey-romancey in Italia, would it weather the trip home? Did I Have Pasta Goggles On? Thankfully, I adore it as much now as I did then—even more, actually.

Which is a good thing to be able to say about pasta recipes as well as husbands.

Recipe

In a large pot of heavily salted boiling water, cook the spaghetti to al dente according to the package directions. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water (it comes in handy), then drain the pasta.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the pancetta over medium-high heat until crisped, 7 to 9 minutes. Add the olive oil, then add the garlic, red pepper flakes, and black pepper and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add the lemon juice to the skillet, then toss in the drained pasta and toss to coat. Add the Parm and toss, adding the pasta water, a couple of tablespoons at a time, just to help the cheese coat the pasta. Add the arugula and toss until it wilts, about 1 minute. Season to taste with additional salt, lots of black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Serve with more Parm.

Ingredients

  • Kosher salt
  • 12 ounces dried spaghetti
  • 1⁄4 pound pancetta or bacon, finely diced (about 3⁄4 cup)
  • 1⁄4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic (about 4 big cloves)
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, plus more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
  • 1⁄4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1⁄2 cups freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, plus more for serving
  • 3 cups baby arugula
