Chrissy Teigen Was Accused Of Ripping Off Another Chef’s Recipe

May 13, 2020 / Posted by:

Last week, Chrissy Teigen put her Twitter account on a little time-out after finding herself smack-dab in the middle of some at-home chef drama. When the heat was finally reduced to a low simmer, she took her Twitter off private, and it seemed like the kitchen drama was over. But little did Chrissy know she was about to find herself in the middle of yet another food-based Twitter throwdown. Shit, give her a minute! She’s barely had time to wipe the counters down after the last one.

People magazine reports that Chrissy discovered she’s officially got one less fan yesterday, after she was accused of recipe plagiarism by a Twitter user who goes by the name D’Amore69 (a name that sounds like an extremely sexual Italian restaurant). This all started after Chrissy explained why she decided to make her Twitter account private in the wake of all the Alison Roman drama.

D’Amore69 then proceeded to accuse Chrissy of stealing a recipe from their friend, known only as Chef Mike, that was allegedly published in either her 2016 cookbook Cravings, or her 2018 follow-up, Cravings: Hungry For More. According to Chrissy’s latest Twitter enemy, Chef Mike cooked for her family once at his restaurant in New York. Chef Mike’s unofficial spokesperson also revealed that Chef Mike is considering filing a lawsuit against Chrissy for recipe theft.

As well as being very loud, D’Amore69 is also not very good at geography. Chrissy Teigen’s mother is from Thailand, not the Philippines. But that’s not the point we’re trying to make here. Eventually D’Amore69 was loud enough to catch Chrissy’s attention, and she responded to their accusations. And guess what? Chrissy doesn’t know who the fuck Chef Mike is or what recipe she allegedly ripped off of him.

D’Amore69 replied to Chrissy, saying that she definitely knows who he is. But sadly, Chrissy clearly didn’t want to continue her impromptu game of “I don’t know her – no, really bitch, I don’t.” Chrissy has yet to respond further, and it’s not known if Chef Mike – or Chef Mike’s lawyers – ever got in contact with Chrissy. Also, the mystery remains as to what recipe Chrissy allegedly jacked from Chef Mike. And Chef Mike might be waiting a while for any direct response, because it’s hard to prove you copied someone’s recipe. Like, food is food – no one owns the intellectual property rights to sprinkling shaved truffles on risotto. Really, the only people who might have a chance at suing Chrissy are stoners. Because fried Kraft mac and cheese balls are exactly the type of thing that was invented in a poorly-lit kitchen at 2 am.
