Chrissy Teigen just inked a couple of big deals with Hulu.

This is going to be amazing.

Fans of Chrissy Teigen have been cooking from her cookbooks from some time now. Many of us have been asking and tweeting for Chrissy to help fill a void in our TV sets.

Well, apparently, one streaming service decided to bring the queen of Twitter and recipe books, to their platform.

Today it was announced that Chrissy Teigen is set to host a cooking-focused talk show with chef David Chang, titled Family Style. The show will appear on the streaming service, Hulu, and will be a co-production between Teigen and Chang’s production companies. Vox Media Studios will also take part in the show’s production.

Chef David Chang is a restaurateur and tastemaker. Chang is widely credited for making “contemporary Asian-American cuisine” a thing, with his Momofuku chain of global restaurants.

Chang was also the creative force behind Netflix’s Ugly and Delicious, a show launched last year by his production company Majordomo Media.

Chang and Teigen began their friendship a while ago, as Teigen was a routine customer at Chang’s Momofuku Noodle Bar.

Here’s a 2011 tweet from Chrissy showcasing her attempt at making a dish inspired by David Chang. They go way back.

The deal reached between Hulu, Chang, and Vox is described by a multi-year and multi-show development pact and will center around “premium food-centric programming” according to NBC.

The show Family Style will showcase how food helps to encourage household and societal relationships. Next on the slate of the production deal, is a foodie travelogue tentatively titled “Eater’s Guide to the World.”

In a statement about the newly revealed deal, David Chang had this to say.

“This partnership with Hulu, Vox Media Studios, and Chrissy Teigen’s Suit & Thai is a continuation of everything we’ve been chasing with Majordomo Media. I’m hoping we can keep integrating new perspectives into the conversation, telling compelling stories about our culture, and trying to change people’s ideas of what food television can and should do. I think there’s an audience out there that understands and celebrates the world through food, and they’re hungry for shows that feed their sense of curiosity in new ways.”

Chrissy Teigen will also produce shows independent of the forementioned pact deal under her production company Suit & Thai. The two-year agreement will allow Teigen’s trademark style to blossom on the production front. According to Hulu, Chrissy will curate and produce original content for the streaming service, and the series could potentially range from dramas to original talk shows.
