5 Things We Know About Chrissy Teigen's New Cookbook
Chrissy Teigen's next cookbook might not have a title, release date or full list of recipes yet, but that doesn't mean we're not already looking forward to it. And as our Facebook cookbook club (join us!) proved while cooking through her first book, Cravings, it's clear that we're not alone. So we did our best Sherlock impersonation and pieced together clues from social media about cookbook number two.
① Chrissy Is Crowdsourcing
It all started back in July when Teigen polled her 5.5 million Twitter followers to see what type of cookbook they'd be interested in. "All of the above" proved a popular write-in nomination, with "easy/fewer ingredients" ending up as the winner. But she didn't stop there—she's asked for input from fans on some of the recipes as well.

② The Book Is Coming Out at the Start of Next Year
In her heartfelt Glamour essay, in which she opens up about her struggle with postpartum depression, Teigen noted that she put cookbook production on hold. But now, she's back in the kitchen and recently shared her excitement about the new recipes with Refinery29. As was the case with Cravings, the book is being edited by Francis Lam, who's won many James Beard Awards and is the new host of the popular food podcast The Splendid Table.
③ There Will Be Cheese, and Plenty of It
Teigen's first book painted with all the colors of the cheese palette: There were Parmesan skillet eggs, a cheddar-packed jalapeño tuna casserole and chicken stuffed with goat and cream cheese. Based off recent posts, her next cookbook promises to do the same.
④ Chrissy's Taking Her Work on the Road
She's been traveling with her family of late while husband John Legend is on tour, but she recently shared that they've been renting houses instead of holing up in hotels to accommodate recipe testing. Like in Nashville, for example, where she made a bubbling pot of braised short ribs.
