Chrissy Teigen’s Mom Pepper Publishes Family Favorite Recipes


Chrissy Teigen’s love of food is famously lovable, and if you’ve perused her extra-friendly food site Cravings, which features the video series “Pepper’s Corner”, or ever scrolled through her Instagram feed, you likely have a good idea of why that’s the case. Chrissy’s mom, Vilailuck Teigen, is known affectionately as Pepper Thai for her skillful and generous use of hot peppers, and inspired her daughters’ active interest in cooking from an early age. Pepper’s new cookbook, The Pepper Thai Cookbook, comes out April 15th, and we couldn’t be more excited.

Teigen’s book is an ode to her journey and family—a collection of favorite recipes from her native Thailand, the fusion recipes she created for Chrissy’s father’s bar patrons after immigrating to America, and the meals she makes for the Teigen-Legend household today. We’ll admit it: We were very eager to know her grandchildren’s favorite dishes. (Prepare to be astounded at these kids’ palates!)

We’ll post our interview with Pepper, as well as our hands-down favorite recipe from the book, in time for the launch. (Spoiler alert: It’s perfect for spring and summer.) In the meantime, we’re keeping plenty of Thai basil, lemongrass, and fish sauce at the ready—this is one book to cook your way straight through.

Do you have a favorite Pepper Teigen recipe? Excited for the cookbook? Let us know in the comments.
