10 Of The Best Celebrity Cookbooks To Add To Your Bookshelf

Cravings by Chrissy Teigen

If you’re like me, you probably do an eye-roll when a celebrity announces they’re coming out with a cookbook. Sure, these stars are talented in their respective fields but do they really deserve a spot on our bookshelves, let alone in our kitchens? Don’t get me wrong, as a cookbook collector, I’m willing to give any star and book a shot, but let’s be real: some celebrity cookbooks are definitely better than others.

Cravings – Chrissy Teigen

When I heard years ago that Chrissy Teigen, then known as just a model and wife of John Legend was coming out with a cookbook, I can say that I swiftly brushed her off as just another wannabe celebrity cook. I can say that after I got my hands on it, my mind was completely changed. Chrissy’s first and now second cookbook both hold pride of place on my cookbook shelves. The recipes you’ll find are inventive, easy to follow, inviting, and most of all, super delicious!

The Clean Plate – Gwyneth Paltrow

No stranger to the cookbook world is Gwyneth and with her mega lifestyle brand goop, it can feel like we’re being pelted with new products left, right, and centre. However, when the products are as good as goop’s and come with the GP seal of approval, we’ll make an exception. The Clean Plate is GP’s newest cookbook and it’s all about clean eating without any “weird” ingredients that you’ll only use once. These recipes are simple to make and more importantly super tasty.
