Chrissy Teigen accused of ‘copying chef’s idea’ for cookbook- but she insists she’s ‘never stolen a recipe’ – The Sun

CHRISSY Teigen has been forced to deny claims that she stole a recipe from a fellow chef, insisting she has never heard of "chef Mike."

Days after she found herself in the middle of a feud with New York Times columnist Alison Roman, the mom-of-two was accused of "copying someone's idea from their cookbook" and that the chef, reportedly named Mike, is considering "filing a suit."

"You can’t cook or not copy someone’s idea from their cookbook! It’s copying even tho you changed one thing! Come up with your own s**t! Ya f*****g bum!" a Twitter user going by the name D'Amore69 @buckwheat1939 tweeted.

"Chef Mike saw your s— and might file a suit! I just saw you review and he called me! Stick with your Phillipino [sic] s**t."

In response, Chrissy tweeted: "No idea who chef mike is but he probably wouldn’t be happy to learn that you, a friend of his worthy of calling, is outing him about his impending lawsuit."

"Chrissy, just use YOUR talents and not others," the user replied.

"That’s all I’m saying! I guess you pissed off a lot of people who have worked their whole lives in the field, and you step in and use their ideas as your own. At least credit the person or persons the idea came from, friends?"

They added: "Oh and he called me because his NY restaurant is closed and was reading the article about you and that sparked his rage.

"Yes, he cooked for your family too. I told him he should do a virtual restaurant show, to show the cooking to table and how things work."

"Please tell me who this chef mike is? so I can speak to him?" said Chrissy.

"I have never stolen a recipe from anyone and I actively talk about the restaurants I love. imagine the ego to think someone is copying you when they haven't heard of you?"

The Twitter user then offered to talk to "chef Mike" and exchange info with Chrissy.

The words come after Alison publicly apologized to Chrissy for calling her a "sellout" and "causing you pain."

The food writer had claimed that the model’s quick rise in the culinary world for her Cravings empire “horrified” her and the comments – which also slammed Netflix star Marie Kondo – went viral for it’s “anti-feminist tone.”

Chrissy later publicly posted a series of tweets in which she revealed the comments had left her "upset" and feeling "crappy", and in reply, Alison apologized and admitted it was "flippant" to use the mom-of-two's company as an example.
