Chrissy Teigen Is Finally Getting a Cooking Show
How do we love Chrissy Teigen? Let us count the ways. We love her Crispy Parmesan Waffle Breakfast and her 3-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse; we love her Spicy Meatloaf and her Everything Bagel Breakfast Bake; we love her French Toast Casserole with Frosted Flakes (we mean, yes?!?!?). But most of all we love her for making us feel like we’re right there with her IRL even when the supermodel-mom-foodie-entrepreneur-cookbook-author-goddess is posting on Instagram.
So when we heard that she is getting a cooking show on Hulu, our initial thoughts were: Finally. (Seriously, why didn’t this happen sooner?) And hallelujah.
We don’t know all the juicy details just yet, but here’s what we do know:
Chrissy has partnered with mega-chef David Chang for a multi-year deal between Teigen’s Suit & Thai Productions, Chang’s Majordomo Media, and Vox Media Studios, reports Refinery29.
As part of this partnership, at least two food-related shows have been confirmed: Family Style will be a cooking show meets talk show with Teigen and Chang as on-camera hosts (if Chrissy’s Insta-stories are any indication, this is sure to be a home run), while Eater’s Guide to the World will draw on the deep knowledge and worldwide network of journalists from Vox’s food and dining website to show off stories and dishes in international culinary destinations.
Chang says the “Hulu Kitchen” partnership hopes to “keep integrating new perspectives into the conversation, telling compelling stories about our culture, and trying to change people’s ideas of what food television can and should do.” He adds that he believes there’s an audience out there that “understands and celebrates the world through food, and they’re hungry for shows that feed their sense of curiosity in new ways.”
Our opinion? Advantage: Hulu. But don’t count Netflix out quite yet. In their recent spate of announcements is a children’s food TV show from the Obamas and one of the creators of Drunk History. Color us intrigued.
