Thanks, Kanye West! As if Kim Kardashian wasn’t already everywhere, she will now be invading our kitchens. According to reports, the Forbes Magazine cover girl is working on a cookbook. And, she credits Yeezy as the catalyst for this idea.
In a recent issue of People magazine, Kim alluded to a source that she is hoping to follow in her mother, Kris Jenner’s, footsteps by penning a collection of recipes. The source revealed, “Kim is starting to cook so much more than she has in her entire life. She’s actually considering a cookbook and she’s pretty serious about it. It all started with Kanye’s encouragement, as he loved when she cooks him food. [Kanye] was always saying to her ‘Baby, I need a home cooked meal.’ His mom cooked all the time, and he says it was such a good thing. And she knows he loves when she cooks, but she never cooked and didn’t know how.”
The source went on to add, “Kanye thinks Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook is genius and really amazing. So, Kim has been getting advice from her, and Chrissy’s been showing her the ropes. One thing Kim is doing is testing the waters of her audience. She’s slowly posting more social media about food and seeing how her fans react. It’s been great so far; people love hearing what she is cooking.”
Well, it hasn’t ALL been great. As reported recently on this site, Kim and her sister Kylie received quite a bit of backlash during one of the earlier “soul food” outings. But, we doubt that is gonna slow down this rice and gravy train.
We expect Kim’s Snapchats to still be popping this Sunday and many more Sundays moving forward as she continues searching for content for her cookbook. Recent weeks have shown celebrities like Kevin Hart, John Legend, and the aforementioned Chrissy Teigen downing her creations and singing her praises. The only question now is if Kanye is going to write the foreword.
