NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • 80 stir-fried-saucy, sweet-and-tangy mostly Thai-ish recipes from the mom who taught Chrissy (almost) everything she knows, Pepper Teigen!

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR BY TIME OUT

Whether she’s frying up a batch of her crispy-garlicky wings for John’s football Sundays or making Chrissy her favorite afternoon snack—instant ramen noodles with ground pork, cabbage, scallions, and cilantro—Pepper Teigen loves feeding her famously fabulous family. Through these eighty recipes, Pepper teaches you how to make all her hits. You’ll find playful twists on Thai classics, such as Fried Chicken Larb, which is all crunch with lots of lime, chile, and fish sauce, and Pad Thai Brussels Sprouts, which bring the fun tastes and textures of pad thai to a healthy sheet of pan-roasted vegetables. And there are the traditional dishes Pepper grew up with, like khao tod crispy rice salad and tom zapp hot and sour soup.

Pepper shares stories about her life, too, such as how she used to sell sweet-savory kanom krok coconut-and-corn pancakes to commuters when she was ten years old in Thailand (now she makes them with her granddaughter, Luna, as a treat) and how, once she moved to the United States, she would cobble together tastes of home with ingredients she could find in her new homeland, like turning shredded cabbage and carrots into a mock-papaya salad. Influenced by Thailand, California, and everywhere in between, Pepper’s mouthwatering recipes and sharp sense of humor will satisfy  anyone craving a taste of something sensational, whether that’s a peek into America’s most-talked- about family’s kitchen or a rich and spicy spoonful of Massaman Beef Curry.
A cookbook from Chrissy Tiegen's mom, Pepper!
Pepper Teigen is the Thai mom and Yai (grandma) we all wish we had! Anyone who is a fan of Chrissy's knows Pepper--she is prominently featured in Chrissy's Instagram and website, CravingsbyChrissyTeigen--and often can be seen in her own feed cooking with granddaughter Luna or preparing soup for grandson Miles. Known as "Pepper Thai" for her love of spicy chiles, Pepper whips up the most delicious dishes in the Teigen-Legend household on the regular, like Roasted Lemongrass Chicken, Pad Thai Brussels Sprouts, and Nam Prik Moo Sloppy Joes, and Seafood Pad Cha. In this debut cookbook, a kind of prequel to Cravings, Pepper shares more than 80 playful, inspiring, bold-flavored recipes for the dishes that fuel this busy household and made Chrissy fall in love with food and cooking. The chapters are quirky and fun, like "Always Snacking" (Thai Beef Jerky, Son-in-Law Jammy Eggs), Salads but not Boring (Naked Shrimp Salad), Back Home in Khorat (Turkey Grapow), and Pepper's Pantry (Puffy Fried Eggs, Sweet Chile Jam). In addition to recipes, Pepper tells stories about her early days in the U.S., learning to cook Thai dishes with American ingredients and substitutes, and what it's like to raise and live with a famous daughter. Creative and delicious, this cookbook will leave Chrissy and Pepper's fans hungry for more.
