Gigi Hadid is a superstar on the runway and in the boxing ring, but it's her creativity in the kitchen that really has me intrigued. As the face of Reebok's #PerfectNever campaign, the 21-year-old beauty is crushing the "perfect" stereotype, inspiring women all over the world to embrace their imperfections and become the best version of themselves physically, mentally, and socially. In addition to challenging herself in her career, Gigi is a huge fan of challenging herself in the kitchen.
While sitting down with media at the empowering event, Gigi talked about how on her days off cooking is a therapeutic and cathartic way to push herself creatively "When I'm home, it's also is very therapeutic for me to cook," Gigi said. "It takes up my time. It's really fun."
"If I feel like it's well-rounded, if it comes from good ingredients, that's what makes me feel good, so that's what I usually go for."
She also let us in on a fun game she and Zayn Malik play in the kitchen. Don't worry, it's SFW. "I love asking my boyfriend, name a random thing you like, and I don't know if I'm going to be able to make it, but it's just a fun thing to do to try and challenge yourself," Gigi gushed. "It's also so much more fun to stay in sometimes." We can agree with that!
While Gigi talked about her refrigerator, stocked with organic and feel-good ingredients, she talked about one of her favorite things to make, tomato soup, and how she makes it unique. "A great thing that I like to do is tomato soup from scratch, but you put [asking our group], what's the tiny pasta? Orzo, yes!" Gigi said, adding, "I love grilled cheese dippers on the side."
For Gigi, it's all about balance. "If I feel like it's well-rounded, if it comes from good ingredients, that's what makes me feel good, so that's what I usually go for." Now we know how we'll be spicing up our tomato soup all Winter long!
