Getting Spicy with Pepper Teigen showcases Pepper and the family as they’ve never been seen before, with an inside look at the way they cook and eat.
The matriarch of the family, Pepper Teigen, always had a passion for creating easy, flavorful Thai recipes for her entire family, which she first shared in her New York Times best-selling cookbook, The Pepper Thai Cookbook: Family Recipes From Everyone’s Favorite Thai Mom.
Now, on Saturday, November 6th at 12pm ET/PT on Food Network and discovery+, Pepper and her eldest daughter, Tina Teigen, share stories from when the Teigen sisters were young, while making an enticing feast inspired by family recipes that are accessible and filled with the delicious flavors of Thailand. In the half-hour special Pepper’s grandchildren, Luna, Miles and Pasha, also join their “yai” (grandma in Thai) in the kitchen to learn how to Get Spicy with Pepper Teigen. The half-hour special is executive produced by Chrissy Teigen on behalf of her production company Huntley Productions.
“I’m so excited to share my family’s favorite recipes that we’ve been making and eating for a long time,” said Pepper Teigen. “I can’t wait for viewers to see how easy it is to make Thai food at home, and after they try these recipes, I know that fish sauce will soon be the new ketchup and pantry staple!”
While the grandchildren – Pasha, Luna, and Miles – are out on a playdate, Pepper is making their favorite dishes for dinner. With the help of her daughter Tina, Pepper prepares a feast for the whole family. First, is a delicious Tomato, Bacon and Corn Salad with a spicy kick, then it’s caramelized Shrimp Lettuce Wraps, or as Tina likes to call them “Thai Tacos” – it’s one dish that the Teigen sisters cannot get enough of. Then, Pepper puts her special twist on the classic chicken larb, using her favorite guilty pleasure, fried chicken. After returning home, grandkids Pasha and Luna help whip up the perfect sweet treat for dessert, homemade Pineapple Soft Serve.
