"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

Lemony Arugula Spaghetti Cacio E Pepe
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.
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.

This book is much different than the healthy eating type cookbooks that most celebrities put out. There is so much bacon and cheese and "bad" stuff in this book, but it is balanced by some good, sane everyday recipes. You'll find salads, and breakfast sandwiches, and appetizers, and so much more. I'm particular fond of the ramen salad and the new take on classic cacio e pepe.
The book is also full of great stories from Chrissy about her mom, or John Legend (her husband), her dad, trips she's taken, jobs she's done. It is a fun read, even if you don't make any of the recipes. And if you don't, you will be missing out on some really, really great food.
