Chrissy Teigen's daughter Luna loves to munch on fried ribs.
The 32-year-old model recently released her second cookbook, 'Cravings: Hungry For More', and has said that out of all the tasty things she cooks for her family, her two-year-old daughter Luna - whom she has with her husband John Legend, with whom she also has four-month-old son Miles - loves nothing more than her Thai Soy-Garlic Fried Ribs.
When if Luna had any input on the book, Chrissy said: "Her favourite recipe is the Thai Soy-Garlic Fried Ribs. The picture in the book where she's eating one, I think that was her ninth rib or something! It was all over her face. It makes me so happy because there's this little kid loving these fried chunks of bitter black garlic on these soy sauce ribs, and it's her favourite thing on the planet. So she is very much her mother's daughter. Forget cakes or desserts or cookies; she'd much rather have, like, a second go at pasta."
The 'Lip Sync Battle' host admits she always tastes her own food when she writes the recipes for her books, and says no writing process is complete without a glass of wine.
Asked if there's a particular food or drink that got her through the book-writing process, she said: "I usually make all the recipes first, and I'm just tasting my own food all day. Honestly, by the end of it, I can't even tell if something's too salty anymore. During the actual writing process, I definitely have a glass of wine. [My recipes] always have a story. And I feel that telling stories always deserves a glass of wine."
Chrissy's new cookbook is a follow-up to her 2016 tome 'Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat' which was a New York Times bestseller, and says she felt pressure to make this one just as good.
She told reporters: "Oh my God, it can only go downhill, right? John [Legend] said he has the same problem with his albums. The first one does really well and you wonder, 'If I make changes, will it do as well?' I don't want the book to be more of the same. I want it to stand out as having clearly different themes, like I traveled more or got more refined in my techniques."
