If there's one thing Chrissy Teigen knows (besides how to take down Twitter trolls and the best ways to embarrass her husband on the internet), it's food. And even though Cravings hit shelves last year, her fans are already dying for more. So, when does Chrissy Teigen's second cookbook come out? No exact release date has been set quite yet, but she does have a time period she's shooting for.
However, we can guess when it might hit stores, and with that, there's good news and bad news. The good news: There's evidence that she's been cooking up good stuff to include already. The bad news: Teigen has already revealed that the book was postponed for awhile for a very important reason.
Back in March, Teigen opened up about her struggle with postpartum depression in an essay she wrote for Glamour. She explained that along with her depression following the birth of her daughter, Luna, came a serious loss of appetite and as you can probably guess, that's not an ideal side effect for anyone, let alone for someone who's trying to create a cookbook, which includes a lot of cooking and eating to make sure recipes are perfect before they go to press.
I had to postpone my second cookbook, but my editor, Francis Lam, and publisher couldn’t have been more understanding. To go from discussing layouts and recipes and shoot days to a complete “off” switch was, I’m sure, not a great thing to hear. But, again, I cannot overstate how lucky I am to work with these people.
The most important thing is that Teigen was able to take the time off that she needed, and it seems like she's feeling much more like herself these days, which means she's also back to work on her new book. In April, she told Refinery29 that she was working on recipes again and that she expects the book to be out in the beginning of 2018.
"I started doing really great, and I really got back into the mode of cooking. I've been emailing my editor and co-editor non-stop for the past two days making these recipes and brainstorming and I'm having so much fun. I'm really starting to feel like myself again. I'm going to try to knock out a bunch of recipes, go on tour with John and Luna, live on this tour bus, and then come back, do a few more recipes, shoot the cookbook, and then have it out for everybody by the beginning of next year.”
In fact, recently she shared the first recipe from the Cravings sequel, and in the caption she just so happened to mention that she was heading into the final week of recipe developing for the book. That means it's close to being finished, which is great news for fans who are dying to get their hands on more of Teigen's recipes.
And in the meantime? Everyone has a banana bread to start perfecting, because judging by the response to this recipe, it's one of her best yet.
If you follow her on Twitter and Instagram — and if you aren't, you're seriously missing out, because this woman is hilarious — you already know that she's been talking about cooking and this project a lot lately. So even though there's a while to go before the book is in stores, it seems like there will be plenty of sneak peeks in the near future to help pass the time.
Whenever Teigen's second cookbook hit shelves, there's no question that it will be worth the wait.
