FAIRFAX—Chrissy Teigen's much-anticipated cookbook comes out today and to celebrate the launch, the model herself will be signing books and greeting fans at Barnes & Noble (189 The Grove Drive). If you've ever wandered through the vast array of artsy food snaps on her Insta, you'll understand why she wrote Cravings: Recipes for All the Foods You Want to Eat. The book represents the culmination of her quest to collect and share all of her favorite recipes, with some lovely photos of her cooking, hanging out with handsome hubby John Legend, or just goofing off with her beloved pups. The signing starts at 7:30pm and given her popularity (that's 5.2 million Instagram followers, folks), you might plan on getting there early.
