Chrissy Teigen’s Mom Pepper Publishes Family Favorite Recipes – Food52

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!)
