The mother of four and author of three cookbooks says she does not do the tedious tasks she asks for in her recipes
Chrissy Teigen is asking for forgiveness for her laborious recipes.
While on Live with Kelly and Mark Wednesday morning, the model admitted that she doesn’t cook the recipes she has shared on previous episodes of the talk show or the ones published in her cookbooks.
The costar of Chrissy & Dave Dine Out’s family grew by two in 2023. She and her husband John Legend welcomed Esti Maxine in January and son Wren Alexander Stephens via surrogate in June. In a busier house with more mouths to feed, the author of three cookbooks says she would not do the tedious tasks she asked in her recipes.
She continued, “ I used to tell people outrageous things like, ‘Make sure to get fresh thyme and take the time to pick the leaves.’ And now I’m like, ‘Uhhhhh, no!’ ”
Ripa laughed and responded, “You told us that right here on the show!”
Teigen then added, “If I make my lasagna now I’m like, ‘This is evil! I can’t believe I did this to people!’ ”
While the former Lip Sync Battle host says it feels “weird” to be on the morning talk show and not cooking, as she has done on previous segments, she is enjoying other parts of the food world.
“Right now we are selling products nationwide in grocery stores and I’ve got my cookies and my banana bread and pancakes and waffles and those are so fun to create and then take pictures of and design the boxes, that’s so much more fun to me personally,” she says, adding that writing a cookbook is “hard.”
Another element of her foodie career is now on the small screen in her new series, Chrissy & Dave Dine Out.
Alongside Momofuku founder David Chang, the pair takes viewers on a culinary journey through the greater Los Angeles area in their Freeform show. Alongside indulging in some mouthwatering eats, the hosts and their famous guests will also dish out some serious gossip on everything from their sex lives to their most embarrassing stories.
"We're taking the coolest people we know out for a bunch of insanely delicious meals," Teigen teases in the trailer.
The premiere episode, which is airing on Jan. 24 on Freeform and streaming on Hulu the next day, has Jimmy Kimmel and his wife, writer-producer Molly McNearney. Other future guests teased in the trailer are Alexandra Daddario, Simu Liu, Kumail Nanjiani, Sasheer Zamata, Eric Nam, Randall Park, Reid Scott and Regina Hall.
