The New Special Premieres on Saturday, November 6th at 12pm ET/PT on Food Network
and Will Be Available to Stream on discovery+
NEW YORK - October 4, 2021 - Getting Spicy with Pepper Teigen showcases the Teigen 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. 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. 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!"
"The Teigens have shared their love of cooking and entertaining on their popular social media channels and in their best-selling cookbooks. With Getting Spicy with Pepper Teigen, we are thrilled to bring their fans to Food Network's linear and DTC platforms for a special look at the whole family in action, cooking and eating together like never seen before," said Courtney White, President, Food Network & Streaming Food Content, Discovery Inc.
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.
Fans can head to FoodNetwork.com/GettingSpicy for the full recipes and use #GettingSpicy to share pictures of their favorite homemade Thai dishes. Plus, on Food Network's social media watch Pepper do a blind taste test of popular Thai ingredients, including jackfruit, rambutan and durian fruit.
Getting Spicy with Pepper Teigen is produced by Huntley Productions and High Noon Entertainment for Food Network and discovery+.
