Longtime fans of Chrissy Teigen will remember that before she was a social media star, she was a WordPress food blogger and lowkey chef. Now, after a successful cookbook and line of cookware, Teigen is returning to the kitchen and starting her own website and YouTube cooking channel, Cravings.
On the channel you can watch clips of her family life, her favorite dishes, and flip through cookbooks with her. You can also see Teigen and husband John Legend romp around Italy digging up truffles and exploring one of their favorite cities, Florence. As a whole, the channel feels more Food Network meets HGTV than a YouTube show — but that’s not a bad thing.
“I want this to be the place you come to for cooking inspiration, for a restaurant recommendation from my travels (because I just knew that the pasta baby in my belly had a higher purpose), to confirm that Pepper really does hack a papaya straight into the bowl with Dexter-level precision, and really anything else you’ve been curious about,” Teigen wrote in the about section of the YouTube channel.
In this video uploaded Monday, Teigen recreates one of the first dishes she learned to make in cooking school: handmade pasta. So a guest chef joins the family to teach them how to make Raviolo al Uovo, a ricotta and parsley ravioli.
The channel also features Teigen’s mom, Pepper, and the absolutely stunning Thai meals she creates for their family in a series called Pepper’s Corner.
In this video, Pepper creates a red hot papaya salad which Teigen writes “is like a window to my soul.” Pepper also does a tutorial for a pomelo peel baby hat, which results in this adorable football helmet-shaped hat for Teigen’s son, Miles.
Launching alongside the YouTube channel isCravings‘ vibrant new website. The brand has all the makings of a food blog, wrapped into a half cooking show and half lifestyle exhibition for Teigen’s family.
So if you were looking for more food porn, you have a lot to look forward to. Teigen has already uploaded 14 videos as of Monday, and posted dozens of recipes on her new website, including new Thanksgiving recipes. A Christmas menu is apparently just a week away.
Buckle up and get ready for this new Teigen experience!
