You may know Chrissy Teigen from her numerous stints as a model for Sports Illustrated. You may know her as the wife of musical superstar of John Legend. But if that's all you know about her, you've been missing out: Teigen has made a name for herself by being hilarious, goofy, and thoroughly unpretentious. Plus, she's a passionate food addict: her new cookbook, Cravings, is all about cooking the food you "actually want to eat."
This isn't some temporary flight of fancy; Teigen has long been sharing her love of food via social media. Here are a few looks into why Cravings is going to be as much fun as Chrissy Teigen herself.
A Serious Sense Of Humor

Chrissy Teigen doesn't take herself seriously for a second (and honestly seems baffled when other people do). Her Twitter is a tribute to her no-nonsense attitude and sassy sense of humor. She often mocks the seemingly ridiculous things she has to do as a model, and never hesitates to share her favorite food cravings or what she's indulging in.

Teigen's been a food lover for ages--so much so that she even runs her own food website, DeLushious. Instead of the diet-focused food you might expect, Teigen shares the things that make her genuinely excited to eat: Hoagies, heavenly desserts, and an intriguing assortment of fried foods abound on her site. This isn't about losing weight or looking like you're ready to hit the runway; it's about celebrating the foods you crave and the time spent in the kitchen.

Despite having dined in some of the finest restaurants the world has to offer (alongside her superstar husband John Legend), Teigen never seems to take herself too seriously. She's not a master chef; she's simply a home cook who's sharing her love and excitement. And she's enjoying herself; if there's one thing you can never doubt about Chrissy Teigen, it's that she does what she loves. Whether cracking up on Lip Sync Battle or gushing about a great new recipe, her enthusiasm is contagious and a whole lot of fun.
Did We Mention The Food?

All of Teigen's humor and charm wouldn't help if the food was sub-par, but she definitely knows her stuff: the social media maven makes sure the focus is never far from what you're about to enjoy. Sure, she and her mega-famous husband (and their adorable dogs) make numerous appearances throughout the book, but the star is always the meal itself. She shares beloved and simple recipes that are fun (and won't terrify those of us who aren't wizards in the kitchen). Judging from the early social media buzz (and the recipes themselves), it looks like "cookbook author" is another title Chrissy Teigen can safely assume. Get ready to dig in and enjoy some fantastic recipes from a truly charming (and stunningly lovely) food fanatic.
