Chrissy Teigen talks Thai heritage

By CelebretainmentDecember 9, 2017

Chrissy Teigen learned to embrace her Thai heritage through food.

The 32-year-old model confessed she used to be “embarrassed” of the strong smells that came from her mother’s home cooking, but now she has learned to love them.

Chrissy told PEOPLE: “My mom, Pepper, who lives with us, is from there and is constantly cooking Thai recipes at home.

“I used to be embarrassed of Thai food’s weird smells as a little kid (especially the strong garlic scent), but now I crave all of the different Thai spices and use endless amounts of garlic in my recipes. I’ve come to be proud of my heritage, instead of shying away from it.”
