The Truth About Chrissy Teigen's Food Website Cravings

Actress Chrissy Teigen is, of course, a powerhouse of talent. But what many fans may not be aware of is the fact that she's very passionate about cooking. In fact, she loves it enough to write cookbooks, run a blog on food called Cravings by Chrissy Teigen, and share some delectable recipes with her fans. A description on Cravings sums things up well: "I've always been full of ideas, but it wasn't until I started Cravings that I was able to make them real," Teigen revealed. "I love, love, love to problem-solve and create things (whether recipes or products) that make life easier, tastier, cozier, and a little more chill."

While Teigen may have good intentions, she hasn't managed to escape controversy. According to People, a columnist from The New York Times named Alison Roman accused the actress of creating a content farm that wasn't quite authentic. The actress was hurt by this and said, "I started Cravings because I wanted something for myself. I wanted something John didn't buy, I wanted something to do that calmed me, made me happy and made others happy, too."

She's back with a bang

Teigen remains committed to her mission. Earlier this month, she relaunched her website and made a few changes to Cravings (via People). This time around, fans can also access Teigen's online store and buy kitchen accessories, Teigen's cookbooks, and even items such as terry robes; this closely resembles the actress' preferences. "I spend the majority of my life in the kitchen — usually in a robe — and the only thing I love more than cooking, eating, and being horizontal on the couch is watching other people get inspired and find joy through food," she wrote on her website.

As explained by Eat This, Not That!, Teigen's website can be best described as a multi-purpose platform that gives fans a sneak peek into her life — and also allows them to browse through some delicious recipes. Fans can also ask the actress questions and if they're lucky, they'll get to read answers straight from Teigen herself. For instance, she's revealed in the past that she's loyal to only Diamond Crystal Kosher salt and uses nothing else. Fascinating.
