Getting Spicy With Pepper Teigen: Release Date, Dishes, And More - What We Know So Far

If you're a fan of Chrissy Teigen, you're probably familiar with her cookbooks or her website Cravings. We trust Chrissy Teigen to offer up some tasty recipes and cooking advice, like what ingredient she often adds to dishes. But Chrissy isn't the only Teigen who has a knack for all things culinary. Her mom, Pepper Teigen, has also published her own cookbook. It's called "The Pepper Thai Cookbook: Family Recipes from Everyone's Favorite Thai Mom," and was published earlier this year. The cookbook has 80 recipes, and you'll find plenty of classic Thai dishes made with Pepper's own unique spin. 

But there's more to come from Pepper. If you loved her cookbook, you'll be even more excited to learn that you can catch her in action in the kitchen. Next month, she'll be hosting her own cooking special, "Getting Spicy with Pepper Teigen," where she'll be cooking up Thai dishes with her family. Here's what we know about this spice-packed half-hour special so far.

What's the release date for Getting Spicy with Pepper Teigen?

Wondering how long you'll have to wait until you can watch "Getting Spicy with Pepper Teigen"? If you're already feeling impatient, good news: you won't have to wait for months. This show will be airing on Saturday, November 6 at 12 p.m. Eastern time and 11 a.m. Central Time, according to a press release sent to Mashed. If you're on the East Coast, grab some lunch and tune in to watch Teigen whip up some Thai dishes, or watch the show and then give Teigen's dishes a try yourself.

"Getting Spicy with Pepper Teigen" will be showing on Food Network and discovery+, so you can catch the TV show on either platform. If you're looking for new cooking and baking shows to binge before "Getting Spicy with Pepper Teigen," get into the spooky Halloween spirit with "Chocolate Meltdown: Hershey's After Dark," which is also on Food Network.

What dishes will we see on the show?

According to Food Network, we'll see Pepper Teigen cook the dishes she grew up eating in Thailand. Food Network explains that while Teigen's dishes are spicy, they do more than just bring the heat. Teigen artfully combines the right amount of spice with flavors like sweet, salty, and sour. We see some of this on Chrissy Teigen's YouTube channel, which features a video of Pepper making a "Spicy Salt & Sugar Dip For Fruit." Teigen's previously talked about what's wrong with American hot sauce, specifically the high vinegar content in sauces like Tabasco, so we're excited to see how she'll bring her spice expertise to the screen.

The show's press release goes into a bit more depth about what specific dishes Teigen will be preparing. There's a wide range of food, from a tomato, bacon, and corn salad to shrimp lettuce wraps and Teigen's version of chicken larb. For dessert, get ready for a pineapple soft serve! You might recognize recipes like the shrimp lettuce wraps from Teigen's cookbook (or Better Homes & Gardens, where the recipe was excerpted). 

Pepper Teigen seems elated about the opportunity to showcase her food. "I'm so excited to share my family's favorite recipes that we've been making and eating for a long time," she said in the show's press release. I can't wait for viewers to see how easy it is to make Thai food at home, and after they try these recipes, I know that fish sauce will soon be the new ketchup and pantry staple!"

Who else will be on the show?

Pepper Teigen won't be cooking alone! She'll be cooking with one of her daughters, Tina Teigen, and they'll be prepping their meal while Pepper's grandchildren are on a playdate. We expect to see Pasha, Luna, and Miles appear on screen, and based on the show's press release, Pasha and Luna will be helping out in the kitchen, too. They'll be pitching in to make the Pineapple Soft Serve.

While the press release for "Getting Spicy with Pepper Teigen" doesn't explicitly say that Chrissy Teigen will be on the show, we do hope that she makes a surprise appearance. However, Chrissy does serve as an executive producer and the show is going to be produced by her production company.

Can't wait until November 6 to hear Pepper Teigen's food advice? Here are the spices she always keeps in her purse, and here's the ingredient that she adds to tea sandwiches for a kick of heat.
