Sports Illustrated swimsuit model/Twitter personality/occasional Food Network guest star Chrissy Teigen has landed a cookbook deal with Clarkson Potter, presumably off the strength of her food blog, So Delushious. According to a press release, the as-yet-untitled book will feature more than 100 recipes "peppered with hilarious anecdotes and photos from Chrissy's Instagram and Twitter profiles." What might said recipes look like? So Delushious' "Stuff I Make" section features tips for cooking "the Perfect Scallop," recipes for Tuscan grilled chicken under a brick, and many photos of Teigen eating alongside husband/musician John Legend.

In the press release, Clarkson-Potter editor-at-large Francis Lam promises: "Chrissy is one of the sharpest, funniest people on Twitter, but behind all the LOLs is her very serious love of cooking and life around the table — she inspires young women to cook with confidence and to feel cool doing it." No publication date has been set.
