There is hardly anyone who would disagree with the fact that John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen are marriage goals.
The two have a mutually respectful relationship with each other whereby they divide up almost all of the housework in order to avoid overburdening just one person.
However, a recent interview which Legend gave to Hamptons Magazine has revealed a new side to their relationship.
While both Legend and Teigen may agree on preferences when it comes to all other house chores, in the kitchen it’s an entirely different story, and that is why the couple prefers to cook separately and never together.
Completely Different Styles
The reason why there is an understanding between them regarding their kitchen situation is that they are both aware of their completely different styles when it comes to cooking.
While Teigen is more of an experimenter and likes to be adventurous when preparing food, Legend is all about sticking to the prescribed recipe word-by-word to the last dot.
Legend would even use Teigen’s cookbook to follow a recipe as he loves what she makes (obviously).
Although he loves cooking as well, he simply cannot stomach the adventurous ways Teigen likes to use the kitchen.
That is why, although they don’t like using the kitchen at the same time, they still love making meals for each other.
A Successful Chef
Women around the country know very well about the cooking prowess of Chrissy Teigen, who launched her very first recipes book back in 2016 with the title Cravings: Recipes For All of the Food You Want To Eat.
Later in 2018, she released a sequel to her popular cookbook. The first one went on to become recognized by the New York Times as a bestseller while the second one has been equally popular with Teigen’s fans.
According to Legend, Teigen’s books contain some of his most favorite recipes as well, such as the French onion soup and also a braised short rib. He also commented on the food he makes which Teigen loves, declaring his mac and cheese as the winner.
Not A Bad Cook Himself
While Legend may undermine the potential contained in his own cooking style, Teigen is not shy when it comes to boasting about the excellence of her husband’s cooking.
However, while speaking with New York Magazine, she revealed that perhaps everyone likes Legend’s cooking, especially his mac and cheese, more is because he is the one making it.
If anyone else had made the same food then, according to Teigen, their friends and family would probably not have loved it as much.
Teigen has put both recipes to test in her first cookbook by placing Legend’s recipe next to her own, as a way to offer readers the option to try both the recipes for themselves to assess which one they like best.
But Legend has learned from the best, his wife, and according to the singer, he really cherishes all the cooking lessons because they offer a great bonding opportunity for the couple.
