Fashion and food are truly having a love fest lately. Karlie Kloss launched a line of kookies, Jourdan Dunn has her own cooking show (so do we, for that matter), and we were pleasantly surprised by the amount of butter found in our fave fashion industry insiders’ Thanksgiving recipes. Next up on the food/fashion continuum? A cook book written by models.
Belgian born and NYC-based model Cesar Casier, 24, (who’s repped by VNY Model Management and has been in the biz for about four years), has amassed his fair share of healthy eating tips. Now he’s sharing them with us mere mortals, in a new cook book called Model Kitchen. The book, in addition to Casier’s own favorite recipes, includes recipes from models like Karlie Kloss, Lindsey Wixson, Lily Donaldson, Mirte Maas and even Julia Restoin-Roitfeld. Casier’s good pal Derek Blasberg wrote the forward and helped with the editing.
Casier published a few thousand copies of the cook book in Belgium, where it promptly sold out. But just in time for all your healthy-eating New Year’s resolutions, an English version of the book will hit Selfridges, Colette, and Net-a-Porter in the next few weeks; Casier hopes to eventually find a US publisher for wider American distribution.
We caught up with the model before the holidays to find out more about the book and what kind of recipes his model friends contributed (because, yes, for the last time, they really do eat!). Read on.
