Teigen is of Thai and Norwegian heritage. While she now proudly shares Thai recipes, she did not feel the same enthusiasm for a long time ago. "I remember being really embarrassed by it when I was young and had friends over," Teigen told SheKnows. "It was weird to pull shrimp heads off and discard the body and eat the head. There were moments when as a kid you cringe.” But as she grew older, she learned to appreciate and love her own national cuisine and even encourages other people to try it out as well.
