Model, author, activist and all-round social media darling Chrissy Teigen has built an empire sharing her joy of cooking with the world. Her best-selling cookbooks Cravings and Cravings 2 have gained a dedicated following for providing no-fuss recipes woven together with Teigen’s warm and witty thoughts on life and love.
Over at her Cravings website, Teigen shared a list of the cookbooks that most inspire her, writing:
“You may have noticed on Instagram or Twitter that I have a huge shelf of cookbooks in my kitchen. They hold SO many memories – from traveling through Thailand to all of our good times in New York. They spark so much joy, Marie Kondo would be proud. Though it was like choosing between favorite children, these are my top 5 cookbooks. Of course, I’ve got so many more go-to’s, but you’ve gotta start somewhere, so I chose the ones I turn to again and again…”
