Chrissy Teigen has long showcased her culinary talents through two wildly popular cookbooks, subsequent cookware line, and countless candid tutorials on social media. Now, fans are being given insight into the source of it all: her mom, Vilailuck "Pepper Thai" Teigen, who just announced her debut collection of recipes, The Pepper Thai Cookbook ($30). Available for preorder ahead of its April 13 release date, the cookbook will consist of family recipes and Thai dishes popular in the Teigen-Legend household.
Chrissy said she was "so so proud" of her mom in a heartfelt Instagram post. "You taught me to love the kitchen, to truly love the act of feeding people you love and now you have something beautiful to prove it to the world," she said. "I love you. I love your thai sloppy joes, your spicy cucumber tea sandwiches, your lemongrass soups, your bbq chicken wings. I love your bow tie pad thai. I love us." Yes, you read that right: Thai sloppy joes.
