Chrissy Teigen starts work on second cookbook

Model-turned-TV personality Chrissy Teigen is keeping busy in the kitchen as she taste tests new recipes for her second recipe book.

John Legend's wife added cookbook author to her resume earlier this year (16), with the release of Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat, which became a New York Times bestseller.

Now Chrissy, who welcomed the couple's first child, daughter Luna, in April (16), is getting back to brainstorming so she can share another round of delicious dishes with fans.

The 30-year-old took to Instagram over the weekend (05-06Nov16) to post a short video of mussels cooking on her stove, and share the Cravings sequel news with fans.

"It's happening!" she captioned the clip. "First day of cookbookin' for book two! Let me know if there's anything you'd looooove (sic) us to have in Cravings part two!"

Chrissy's recipe-writing partner Adeena Sussman also took to social media to give followers a sneak peek at their latest culinary creations.

"We cookbookin' numero dos (number two) over here at casa (home) @chrissyteigen," she wrote beside a snap of blueberry pancakes. "Today, breakfast was served all day."

Sussman also enjoyed the benefits of working at Chrissy's Los Angeles home, where they were fed by the star's mom, Pepper, who served up a plate of spicy shrimp papaya salad for the hardworking ladies.

Alongside a photo of the salad, she wrote, "Lunch at home by @pepperthai2 : hand-hacked and pounded papaya salad with a LOT of chilies and quick-seared head-on shrimp with MORE chilies. Served with hot rice. Did I mention the chilies?"

It's not known if the papaya dish will make it into Chrissy's book, which has yet to be given an official release date, although the beauty previously dedicated a whole chapter in Cravings to her favorite recipes from her mom.
