“The unicorn burrito with cotton candy? That’s not a burrito. That’s a tortilla filled with cotton candy and jelly on it” Chrissy Teigen
Teigen wishes meat pies were more popular and says,“They’re so easy to hold, so delicious. Ugh, I love them.”
Chrissy Teigen recently spoke out about the new drink growing in popularity. It’s called a Unicorn Frappuccino, and it is a trend Teigen says she wishes would end. As a matter of fact, Teigen says she doesn’t like any of the unicorn themed food trends, like the unicorn burrito, and wishes they fad would finish.
Teigen is now the author of her own cookbook, and has a second cookbook soon to be released. She said working on her book has had its challenges, but needless to say, Teigen has been successful. Teigen told People, “The first one, it’s every recipe you know you love, your family loves, then you start to work on the second one and John Legend compares it to a second album, you want to change it up but you also know why it worked so well in the first place so you don’t want to change it up too much”.
“That’s definitely the challenge in it.” Teigen on her new book
Teigen, who has a 1-year old daughter named Luna, with singer John Legend explains that she is looking for her new book to “tell a story”! Teigen went on to explain to her fans and fellow foodies that her tastes and ideas have changed since her last book. She said in her comments, “Writing the last book I was pregnant, and promoting the last book I was pregnant and the food that I loved is different from the food that I love now”.
“I keep saying I want to put in a few more healthy options in the book but that doesn’t tell the right story”
Teigen had a lot to say about her view of the food world as it is today. She is hoping to have continued success while giving people what they want. At the moment, she is trying to find the balance between what she likes and how she pairs things, to what she thinks the world is looking for. Teigen said, “I’m just not understanding a lot of things in the food world and I feel like it’s all about the Instagram now. I mean, I’m old school in the way where I’m like just serve good food and people will come to it. Now everyone feels like they need a gimmick and you really don’t—just make good, hearty beautiful food.” With an attitude like Teigen’s you can’t go wrong. Teigen is friendly and outgoing, and her fans are eagerly looking forward to her next book and the new recipes it will include. When Teigen spoke about food she enjoys and wishes would gain recognition and popularity she mentioned meat pies. Teigen specifically mentioned them in her comments saying, “I do feel like meat pies haven’t taken off enough in the United States” Teigen said, “They’re so easy to hold, so delicious. Ugh, I love them.”
